I am using Picolog version 5.20.9 for a PT104 PT100 Data Logger on a PC with Vista 32 bits. Some problems arise that are not depending on the Picolog version.
1- In the spreadsheet window the View Options (the check mark button) is inoperative. The blue ring keeps rotating for about one minute with no result.
2- In order to bypass the inoperative View Options of the spreadsheet one may set the desired new parameter in a .plw file.
That works in an apparent erratic way. Note that editing a .plw file with Notepad leads to a "Invalid File Format" while editing with Wordpad may lead to a really corrupted file, but that one may be readable by Picolog. Note also that the data seem to be still there. A coding problem?
3- I do not understand the plw.ini file found in C:\useraccount\AppData\Local\.42f31349.....\
Its content is quite different from what is stated in the manual. It shows indeed :
and nothing else.
4- What is the real use of the RECORDER.plw file ?
5- When saving a file after a recording, the .plw file may show the address of a former file which seems to have no relationship with the actual one.
6- Would it be possible to view all the previous (or default) settings alltogether in a single window and permanently? That would allow to check at a glance the actual state before continuing, thus saving time.
7- Is there any chance to get drivers for PT104 under linux in the near future? I developped for another product some applications with GUI using Tcl/Tk . What should I need to build a complete GUI ? I would be happy to make it available to anyone when it is made.
