Preparing a Target Windows* System for Energy Analysis

If you want to collect energy data on a Windows system:

  1. Copy the Intel SoC Watch installer (<install_dir>\target\windows_socwatch\socwatch_windows_<version>.msi) to the target Windows* system.

  2. Run the installer on the target system. The package includes a user’s guide, and an End User License Agreement. By default, the Intel SoC Watch collector is installed in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\SoCWatch directory.

  3. Set your Path environment variable to point to the installed bin directory containing socwatch.exe and you are ready to begin collection.

For more information, including additional configuration options, see the Intel SoC Watch User's Guide located in the directory in which the collector is installed or available online.
