plw32.exe has stopped working

Postby want2know » Tue Aug 13, 2013 8:25 am

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am using Picolog data logging for ADC-20 and terminal board.

During the data logging, at "Spreadsheet", whenever I click "Write to disk", I will get this error "plw32.exe has stopped working"and the program would have to be terminated. If I didnt click that button,it is working perfectly.

Another question, is it possible to combine two files, 1.plw and 2.plw? For example, I have data logging from t=1s to t=1000s which is saved at 1.plw, the next day, I continue doing the logging process and save it to 2.plw. Is there any way I could combine these two files so that I get a single graph or spreadsheet?

Hope to hear you soon, thank you very much.

Which version of PicoLog are you using?

Do you have read/write permissions on the folder to which you are saving to?

The best way to combine files is to export them to a csv file then use something like MS Excel to merge the data together. Unfortunately it is not possible to combine plw files.
