Installation procedure

By clicking the download button below and then accepting the license agreement, you will download a compressed zip file ( to your hard drive. Note that this file should be saved in a subdirectory since it will not install if it is just at a main drive directory (e.g., don't save it just at C:\\). Double-click this file in Windows Explorer to unzip the following four files:

  1. SETUP.EXE: the setup program
  2. SETUP.LST: a list required by the setup program
  3. DATALOGR.CAB: the compressed DataLogr files
  4. INSTALL.PDF: installation instructions

Double-click on SETUP.EXE to install DataLogr and its support files onto your computer.

Note:  With Windows 7, the installation will ask about replacing an OCX with an older one, and the answer should be NO.  Win7 has a compatibility troubleshooting program, so that can still be applied if necessary.
