I am providing step-by-step instructions for installing GeigerLog and all the Python-stuff in a "HOWTO - GeigerLog Installation on Windows.pdf" document available here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/geigerlog/files/

Thanks to 'pip' this is a lot simpler than I had expected.

There is also a version upgrade to GeigerLog 0.9.05 for download. It mostly straightens some graphics peculiarities when GeigerLog is run on Windows. The graphs are now in better quality and more similar between Linux and Windows.

Thanks Ullix, any chance these will install on XP SP3?

Try it. I have no way to test it.

I guess even older versions od Python and Pyqt4 will work (but you have to find them)

Thanks, I will, I'll post back the outcome, but will be a few weeks before I can try it out.

Again, appreciate your work on the software and the research that goes into communicating with the counter.

I'm having a bit of trouble running python scripts on my windows pc.

"Python 2.7.14 (v2.7.14:84471935ed, Sep 16 2017, 20:19:30) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32

>>> c:\geigerlog\geigerlog -d
File "<stdin>", line 1
c:\geigerlog\geigerlog -d
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
>>>"

Are we going to see a windows executable file anytime soon?

You should be starting GeigerLog from the Windows CMD shell, not, as you apparently did, from within the python interpreter (while also possible, it is unnecessarily complicated). See more in-depth discussion here: https://docs.python.org/2.7/faq/windows.html

I recommend you follow the HOWTO, install GeigerLog as described, and use the batch file geigerlog.bat, which I provided with the 0.9.05 version. Preferably with a shortcut to it, which you can put on the desktop.

This batch file simply executes the command:

python c:\geigerlog\geigerlog -d

GeigerLog is running unmodified on Linux, Windows and Mac (and other systems) - I don't see the need to produce an executable which only runs on Windows.
