As regards the text file generated by the program (the only method offered to record data), besides the highly inaccurate data the text file was next to useless for importing into other programs. The one time stamp offered is unusable by any standard spreadsheet, math program or database program. In addition, when opening the text file with Excel we found that as long as we observed the data with Excel, the radiation program discarded all additional points from then on, until we closed Excel. A look at the text file revealed a large chunk of missing data lasting as long as Excel was looking at the file.
All additional features of Aware Electronics software are completely missing and not offered. Our testing of the software was cut short in that without a reboot of the PC the software refused to load, instead within a second it issued a series of obscure error message boxes, popping up one after the other until the PC's desktop was filled with these error message boxes. Even a fresh unzipping of the program from the zip file would not cure the problem until a reboot indicating that even after shutting the program down the program leaves in memory some aspect of itself, a looping piece of code perhaps, that then places a new launch of the program into an error loop of some sort. Our conclusion is for anything but the most basic toy-like monitoring of radiation there really is only one choice.
