    Cant Delete event log file


    Hi

    I've been trying to delete appsanywhere so that I can reinstall it however it won't give me the option to reinstall. I think that this is because there are still two files from the software on my PC. These files are

    "AppsAnywhereExternalUpdater.evtx"

    "S2AppsAnywhere.evtx"

    I've tried deleting them but it says "The action can't be completed because the file is open in windows event log"

    So I deleted all of my event log files and it still says that its open in the event log even though there is nothing in my event log viewer. The only reason I know that its still on my PC is because I'm running a search everything app.


    Please tell me how to delete these files because everything I've tried hasn't worked Cant Delete event log file :(

    (Also I don't know too much about event log files and stuff so please be super obvious in your response)


    Thank you

    :)

    Only write one number to log file and delete old ones?

    Hey,

    I'm trying to have some software read from a .text file a number (GPU Temp) but the software will only the first number in a list (Or the first anything)

    Is there a way to have to log file delete the previous entries and write the new number in it's place without any headers?


    EDIT:

    Sorry I'll try again.

    I have some webcam software that can read a number (or whatever) from a text file and then it displays the number as an overlay.

    See here: http://10.244.193.13:8081/

    I was trying to use GPU-z to do this but as it logs as a list the webcam software can't update properly (also it reads the headings of the file and displays them instead)

    Is there anyway to alter the logging to only output just the number (GPU Temp) and to delete the old numbers so the new value is the only value in the file.
