Error: OSWatcher uses the OS utility Logman to gather its data

Starting Operating System Watcher for Windows (OSWatcher) may return following error message.
c:\oswfw_2_5.1\oswfw_2_5.1>oswatcher 20 120

OSWatcher uses the OS utility Logman to gather its data.
Logman can only write its output to a local drive.
fOSWatcher therefore can only be run from a local drive.

To solve this issue; open command prompt, where you will initiate OSwatcher, by using “Run as Administrator” option after right clicking on command prompt icon form the start menu – as you see bellow

After that, OSWatcher should run successfully
c:\oswfw_2_5.1\oswfw_2_5.1>oswatcher 20 120
