Hi, I need to install WatchPower on a Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspbian as operative system. How can I install the software? I tried to copy the directory WatchPower on desktop and to execute the file WatchPower but it doesn't work. Thank in advance for your answer.

You need to download the correct version of WatchPower for your Raspbian installation. I know that Raspbian works with 64bit architecture, therefore the Linux x64 package is needed.

Access the following link and save the Linux X64 package. Extract it using the following command unzip -d destination_folder (for example unzip -d /tmp/watchpower)

Browse to the extraction folder using cd /tmp/watchpower and then type ./WatchPower. If you need to make the file executable, type chmod +x WatchPower and then run the command.

I did download the zip and extract it on my rapsberry Pi3
Unfortunatly I got an error while executing:
-bash: ./WatchPower: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
The file format is:
WatchPower: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib64/, for GNU/Linux 2.6.32, BuildID[sha1]=c6c7a4376eece00a010bc7d6ca68da58f38c23d4, not stripped

Are you shure that this is the right format for ARN / Debian ?
Best regards

raspberry pi is an ARM achitecture so X86-64 won't work - I don't think the code has been compiled for ARM chips ... yet. I am looking for an ARM version of WatchPower too.
