I have made IV, where I'm trying to read data from a log file, that is being updated by another program while my IV runs.
To be clear, this program writes data continuously to this file and I want to read from the file in LV at the same time.
The problem is that LV reports an error when I'm trying to read the log file, even if I use to "read only" mode.
I believe that the program that is producing the file, have some kind of lock on the file. I have tryed to copy the file and then reading from the copied file, but LV throws already an error when I try to copy the file.
Has anyone tryed this, and found a solution.?
Additional info: The program that produces the file is STM Studio
Thanks for the proposal..
It worked, but the program (hobocopy) takes to long, to copy the file,
about 10 sec. and I want to do it much faster, less then 10ms.
