Hi , i still get this error when i built a custom sensor to get Data from KlimaLogg Service

Does somebody know what is this error for ?

param (
	[string]$inputfile = "C:\ProgramData\KlimaLogg.dat1"
)

set-psdebug -strict
$ErrorActionPreference="SilentlyContinue"
$error.clear()

write-host "Start PRTG Sensor"

	write-host "Processing $line"
	if ($line[0] -eq "[") {
		if ($inisection -ne "") {
			write-host "Closing old inisection: $inisection"
			$resultxml+=("</$inisection>`r`n")
		}
		$inisection = $line.replace("[","").replace("]","")
		write-host "Found new inisection: $inisection"
		$resultxml+=("<$inisection>`r`n")
	}
	elseif ($line -like "*=*") {
		$key=($line.split("=")[0])
		$value=($line.split("=")[1])

Hi,

When you run this script from the commandline, what does the output look like? Is there anything after the closing </prtg> tag?

Hi, please take a look at this example: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/64817-how-can-i-show-special-characters-with-exe-script-sensors

Write-Host puts out Text to Stdout and so your XML is destroyed by your logging. All what you see in the console, when you run your script manually, was send to PRTG.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Jens
