Associate .plw files with PLW32 (v5.15.5)

Post by dcoleman » Tue Nov 14, 2006 12:06 pm

There does not appear to be a command line function for PLW32 to open a data file in player mode (-P).

Associating .plw with PLW32.exe causes it to open in recorder mode. Editing the registry (to add the -P) I am able to get it to open in player mode, but it won't read a file.

It would be convenient to be able to open these files by double-clicking them in explorer - can this function be added?

Associate with .plw files

Hi there,

We have a PicoLog setup, and I am trying to enable users to view recorded files simply by double-clicking in explorer. I have managed to put the "-p" parameter in the registry, so it opens the player not the recorded when you double-click a file, but it wont then load the file. You have to go File - Open then goto the directory and open the file that way. So, it is possible, but not ideal!

I hope you can suggest something for me.

Hello Matthew,

The '-P' invokes an .exe file whereas, you wish to access a function within the program from the command line and, that is not catered for in the application.
