Run WinDaq and Begin Recording on Windows Startup


A new application, currently for use with DI-718 and DI-730 Ethernet products, allows you to run WinDaq and begin recording on Windows start-up. The application, titled LaunchWinDaq, lets you “set it and forget it”.

After following through a short procedure to save your default conditions (calibration, scaling, annotation, etc.), and copying a few files in the WinDaq installation directory, you’ll simply place the LaunchWinDaq executable in the Windows startup folder. Every time you start Windows, WinDaq will run and begin recording data. Support for additional DATAQ instruments is in the works.

Click here to download the application along with instructions.

    Any updated support for DI-720 auto start?

      You can launch WinDaq on boot-up with a DI-720 by create a command line, pasting the command line in a batch file, and using the Window ‘Scheduled Tasks’ utility.
