Thanks, I never thought of the task scheduler, Once I get the weather station set up I will try it.
The machine I want to run the software on is a pentium 4 so it is single core.
When the programme takes a recording is this recording include the date and time it was taken, so I know when it was recorded?.
I plan on taking readings twice a day 9 am and 3 pm and then put the data into an excel file.
After you run Heavyweather, it will read from the console the history and save this to a file called history.dat that can be exported. The interval at which it stores data is determine in the Heavweather setup. Once you get the software, you will easily find that.
When you view the history data, there should be an export button there that will write a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file that can be easily imported in to Excel.
Most people run their computers 24x7 and upload their data to sites like Weather Underground.
