Admin rights shouldn't be necessary, however the folder writing permissions would need to be correct.

If this is still causing an issue please email support@picotech.com and one of the team will be able to look at this in more detail.

Hi (My first post),
Win 10, 64 bit,
Picoscope.com /a Measurements.CSV? >> measurements.csv

file columns are different every time - see three versions below
Also difficult to parse and convert mV, uV etc

0ms: Measurements.CSV?
A DC Average -141.6 mV -142.3 mV -141.4 mV -141.9 mV 279.9 æV 20 WholeTrace

0ms: Measurements.CSV?
A DC Average -161.9 mV -162.8 mV -161.3 mV -162.3
mV 351.3 æV 20 WholeTrace

0ms: Measurements.CSV?
A DC Average -144 mV -144.2 mV -142.2
mV -142.9
mV 685.2
æV 20 WholeTrace

As for the command line options, there is a list, but nowhere documented the necessary syntax.
Keen for help,
thanks in anticip,
Steve

Hi Steve,

This might be down to character sets. In testing, I found that the 'mu' symbol is fine when displayed in the Command Prompt window but not when exporting to file.

Our Development Team are looking at measurements so I will report this.

With regards to the Automation Commands, please refer to this post.

Additionally, use ? at end of an option to find out about the item and for outputs

e.g.

Timebases
Code: Select all
picoscope.com /a CollectionTime? - Queries options for timebase
picoscope.com /a CollectionTime.Next - chooses next timebase
picoscope.com /a CollectionTime.Items? - lists timebases available
picoscope.com /a CollectionTime.SelectedIndex=0 - chooses first timebase

Regards,
Hitesh

Thanks Hitesh,
So I'm using a batch file, hitting Enter when I want to record data.
In a DOS box At CMD prompt, I type the Measurements command and I get only one line back - GOOD!
But when that same command is in the batch file with text result >> sent to file, it breaks into multiple lines.
The number of lines may vary after reboot - BAD!
Of course I then want to parse this text file to input to Excel, it is not proper CSV, and the units vary uV (aeV), mV and nothing for V. All that very much complicates conversion.

While I'm on it: It's frustrating to have to always reset the LP filter settings on restart.

I'd really like to have the Excel com control but had no luck with several flavors.
