windows 8 command line problem

Postby alpurser » Tue Dec 09, 2014 8:55 pm

Hi I'm using a 1216 module with windows 8 and am unable to start it from command line or batch file using : plw32.exe -r xxx.pls

Whatever quotes, paths etc I use it comes back saying its unable to access the file.. I can provide more detail but interested to see if anyone has tried and tested approach or if indeed there is an issue..

Please note I can start the exe as described but it won't read the config file
Many thanks

Hi Alex,

Is there any issue when you try to load the .pls file into the PicoLog Recorder software?

It might be a permissions issue in the folder. Have you tried running the command prompt with Administrator privileges?

If this doesn't work, please e-mail support@picotech.com with your settings file or post it here.
