Can't get PAL to work with own Counter Logs (Relog Error - Unable to find file)

Apr 26, 2016 at 2:04 PM

I recently discovered the PAL tool and I also got it to work. But only with the sample file that comes with the download package.

When I'm trying to analyze self created blg-files I get an error while running the PAL-skript, which I have added here. I assume it has something to do with the way I'm creating the file. Has somebody had this error eventually too or does somebody maybe have a hint for me where I can begin search the error?

Best regards

Relog.exe failed to process the log. Review the results above this line. If relog.exe continues to fail, then try running Relog.exe manually and/or contact Microsoft Customer Support Servers for support on Relog.exe only. PAL is not supported by Microsoft.

As I have written my post I got an idea where to search for the issue. I think the problem is that my own created files are made with a german version of Windows.

Yes... that was the cause for the problems I had. Problem is solved. :)
