Hello

The Player will start if you try to run picolog again, when there is already an instance of PicoLog running.

Is there a PL icon on the taskbar? If there is, double click on it to bring PicoLog Recorder back up.
(see the attached image for what the icon looks like)

If you don't see this icon you can force the recorder to close. Bring up your Task Manager and close the instance of PLW32.exe. Then you can try rerunning the software and it should bring up PicoLog Recorder this time.

Note. The latest version of Picolog recorder can be downloaded from our website

Hi, I have just taken delivery of the PT-104 data logger, have installed PicoLog and am running into this issue. First time I started PicoLog Recorder, it brought up the Recorder. Now it will only bring up the PicoLog Player even if I explicitly click on the PicoLog Recorder icon itself rather than the PicoLog Player icon. I have checked I have no running processes in the background with Task Manager. I am running on Windows 10.
How can I get back to the PicoLog Recorder please, it appears to be impossible...

PicoLog Recorder will still be running (plw32.exe), you will find that it has been minimised to the status bar in the bottom right, check hidden items, where you will find a blue PL logo.

If the recorder is running and you try to run it again the default action is to start the player.
