The CompIT log generated by the FARO Laser Tracker is used to verify accuracy issues and log what was done during a CompIT.
For the Vantage tracker:
The CompIT log file is located in the following hidden folder:
Windows 7 Computers: C:\ProgramData\FAROLaser\CompIT
Windows XP Computers: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\FARO Laser\CompIT
The file name is CompITLog.txt
Both of these folders are hidden from normal viewing in Windows Explorer so you may need to change your settings:
In Windows 7: In Windows Explorer, goto Organize -> Folder and Search Options. Select the View tab and choose "Show hidden files and folders".
In Windows XP: In Windows Explorer, goto Tools, select the View tab and choose "Show hidden files and folders".
For ION, V2 and V1 X, Xi, SI trackers:
