Hi Martin,

first of all, thank you for the great software! I made a donation to support.

While reading the forum on how to activate auto-logging at startup I noticed there have already been several similar requests/questions:

https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/Thread-Running-HWiNFO-from-a-script-to-autolog
https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/Thread-Sensor-Auto-Log-Setting-Location
https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/Thread-Auto-logging
https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/Thread-Auto-Start-Logging

Would it be possible to put this feature on the to-do list? Should you decide to implement it, also think about the rotation configuration for the log files.

Many thanks

I'm sorry, but this feature is intentionally not implemented.
Fully automated monitoring/reporting is reserved for the HWiNFO SDK, which is a commercial product.

Thanks for you donation !

Fair enough.

But could you then point me to the product(s) that use the HWInfo SDK? I'm looking for exactly what you said - fully automated monitoring/reporting.

Those products are quite different and each is using the sensors data in a different manner. So it depends on your requirements.
If you're interested in the SDK then please contact me directly via e-mail.

I'm primarily interested in monitoring temperatures (CPU, PCH, HDDs) plus SMART information from the HDDs with automatic logging and alarming.

HWInfo64 has everything I need except for 2 pieces that touch upon the automation:

1) It lacks the proper Windows service mode in order to be able to start without any users logged on.
2) Auto-logging at startup.

Now, if you say such features are not implemented intentionally in the free product, I understand that. But can you then suggest a commercial offering where they are implemented?

I'm not interested in the SDK.

Thanks.

I'm sorry, but I'm not aware of such a commercial product.
Most of them are quite specific for a given project.
