report file not updated dynamically


Hi there are a number of other questions about report file
in which you acknowledge report cannot be generated automatically from startup
of HWinfo and requires mouse/gui intervention.

A further limitation that does not seem to be discussed explicitly
is that once report is generated it does not continue
to dynamically update with latest sensor data - is this intended behaviour ?

Like other users I wanted to be able to parse an ongoing report and extract
data with perl and push this into excel say.

Hi Paul,

yes, both 'features' are intended.
Automatic logfile (via command line params) is not available, because otherwise it would damage the SDK existence.
When you save a logfile, it stores all data sampled from sensors up to that point and doesn't continue to update the file. You need to save again to store later data.
