I’ve downloaded the Ping Viewer stable release from
and unzipped it onto two different Windows 10 machines.
I tried to start
pingviewer.exe in the
deploy subfolder of the extracted directory. The first time I do this, I get a warning screen and choose “Run Anyway.” After that, I get no such warning.
But every time, the program silently dies after creating a new, empty
.txt file in
Documents/PingViewer/Gui_Log. It is briefly visible in the processes in the Windows Task Manager, like this:
I’m going to check with our managed service provider to make sure it’s not just killing off an unsigned executable named
pingviewer.exe because it sounds like a network threat or something, but wondering if there are some outstanding Ping Viewer issues on Win 10.
My echosounder and USB-to-serial adapter appear to work fine using the
ping-python python library, but I’d like to play around with the streaming visualization for initial testing if I can.
