Not being able to open .plw file on mac

Post by 13851751 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 8:33 am

I am not able to open .plw files which were created on a windows machine from a TC-08 usb data logger on my mac. Has anyone else had this issue? Any ideas how to get it to work? (I know that I can go back to the windows machine and create a .csv file, but I would like to work directly with .plw files with the PicoLog software on the mac).

plw files are from our PicoLog 5 software which is only compatible with Windows O/S's

The PicoLog 6 software works with Windows/Mac/Linux but doesn't support the older file format, so unfortunately converting the plw files to csv on a Windows machine is the only option.
