I'm trying to collect data from an ADC-20 logger with PicoLog in Windows 7.
My problem is that the process must be completely automated. I have already been able to make PicoLog start recording as soon as Windows starts, but when where is a power loss, Windows will shut down unexpectedly and the file that PicoLog was currently saving data to will be corrupted.
I have considered installing a battery in my computer so Windows can shut down properly when there is no power, but when the computer starts again after such a shut down PicoLog cannot connect to the data logger. I get the following error as a popup window when PicoLog starts (translated from swedish, sorry about that): "Unit with series 'AS296/104' is missing and no ADC-20 reserv unit is connected". Since the process must be automated there is no person there to click ok and remove and plug in the logger again.
Any ideas on how to solve either the problem with connection or if there is another way to make this work.
The information before the power loss is the most needed one.
