Install Scaphandre on Windows

!! Warning: Windows version of Scaphandre is still in early stage. !!

Using the installer

Download the package and install it as an administrator.

Configuring a Windows service to run Scaphandre in the background

For example, to run the prometheus-push exporter in the background and target the Prometheus Push Gateway server with ip address using HTTPS on port 443 and a step to send metrics of 45s, without checking the certificate of the push gateway (remove that option if you have a properly signed TLS certificate):

sc.exe create Scaphandre binPath="C:\Program Files (x86)\scaphandre\scaphandre.exe prometheus-push -H -s 45 -S https -p 443 --no-tls-check" DisplayName=Scaphandre start=auto

Ensure the service is started in Services.msc, start it by right clicking on it, then Start, otherwise.

To delete the service, you can do it in Services.msc, or:

sc.exe delete Scaphandre

Using an installer including a development version of the driver

If you are running a development version of the installer (which probably means a development version of the driver), you'll need to enable Test Mode on Windows prior to proceed to this installation, then reboot.

bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON
bcdedit.exe -set nointegritychecks on

Beware: in this case, activation of test mode and a reboot is needed before anyway.

Once installed, you should be able to run scaphandre from Powershell, by running :

& 'C:\Program Files (x86)\scaphandre\scaphandre.exe' stdout


An error such as

scaphandre::sensors::msr_rapl: Failed to open device : HANDLE(-1)

means that the driver is not properly setup. Check it's state by running:

driverquery /v | findstr capha

If there is not item returned, the installation of the driver encountered an issue.

If the service is STOPPED, there is also something wrong.
