Real-Time API Win 7 Issues?

I'm running the latest ET release for Windows (10.44), connected USB to the Seagull Wireless Dashboard. During Real-Time operation/mode the ET Software displays all the telemetry that I'm expecting, however it appears the C:\LiveRecorderFile.log file is not being generated. I've also verified that the GoogleEarth KML is being generated.

I followed the instructions from the realtime.pdf, Version 2.2 to create a new Registry Value.

I haven't been able to find any similar issues in this forum yet, but I'm suspecting my VirusScanner (McAfee) or Operating System (Win 7 Pro) are likely causes.

Has anyone else out there had or resolved similar problems?

Thanks in advance

My 2 cents...I have Win 7, Pro, 64 Bit, AVG AntiVirus. Everything is fine. But ... Windows 7 is very protective of the c:\ directory. When I do this, I always start the Eagletree software by rignt clicking on it and picking "Run as Administrator". That seems to work, although I've also gotten in the habit of creating an empty LiveRecoderFile.log, but that was more to empty it, I think. Anyway, I just tried it again and it still works. Bill needs to move the log file somewhere else, but I'm betting that's low on the list.

C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\LiveRec orderFile.log

Thanks for the Reply dhares!
I put AgentRansack to work last night and actually found the log at C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\LiveRec orderFile.log

I'm going to code to that location for now. I'll also give the "Run as Administrator" trick a shot.

Agreed, the output location of the LiveRecorderFile.log should be configurable.

Thanks Again!

Registered User is for which version of the data logger?

I have a V4 and there is 54 keywords in the realtime doc but 55 values coming in. I'm going to call it HDOP because that's at the end of my .cdr and not in the pdf...

Can we get an updated API doc please and thank you.

protocol usage by seagull


I would like to improve the user's interface of Seagull Dashboard for use with telemetry system.

I would like use for more than 20 minutes, in this case read the file LiveRecroderFile.log lives the system very lazy.

Cause this I would like read the information from Seagull Dashboard and use in my application, somebody knows which protocol between PC ans dashboard? Can be something like RS232 that have a simple use for who don't understand very much about this electronics issues...

Thank you anyway!!

Best Regards!!!
