Has anyone had trouble with losing your channel configuration in Logworks? Its happened to me twice in the last few months. When I open Logworks none of the channels are configured and I've had to reconfigure each one. It's a pain because I use a fuel pressure sensor, the LMA-3 map sensor, and a TPS on the carb that all have to be entered.

You can save the configuration file separately so that if you lose it, it's not such a pain.

Page 38 of the Logworks 3 Manual:

4.4 Storing and loading channel configurations
LogWorks automatically stores the last channel configurations in the computers registry. It actually stores up to 100 of the last used configurations of all channels and retrieves the one best fit to the current MTS chain when LogWorks connects.
To store the current channel configuration (of all channels) manually, use the Main Dashboard menu:
Channels->Save Input Description...

This allows you to store the current input description in a file in the LW Settings Folder. By default input description files have the file extension .inp.
You can load a stored input description either from a .inp file or extract the channel description from an already stored .log file with the Main Dashboard menu item:
Channels->Import Input Description...

I never found out why it would randomly lose the configuration, but this worked for me.

Hope this helps

I appreciate the tip. I had skimmed the manual and saw the part about it being stored in the registry, but did not see the details on it. Thank you.
