Joulemeter error - Object reference not set to an instance of an object

    Question

  • I'm trying to run Joulemeter on a laptop off the battery but keep getting the following error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    The specific details displayed:
    The monitor will turn off and change brightness. PLEASE DO NOT USE THE MOUSE, KEYBOARD, or other input devices. Starting calibration.
    Calibration related data will be stored to: C:\Users\Lance\AppData\Local\Microsoft Research\Joulemeter\1.2.0.0
    Phase 1: Preparing system (may take several minutes) ...
    Phase 2: Loading system ...
    Estimated completion time: 11/1/2011 2:03:10 PM

    I've read other posts of people getting the same or a similar error. Can someone help? Is there a way to get past this error?

    Thanks!
