Delete NMEA logger file each time of boot

Thu Jan 28, 2016 8:58 am

Win 7 64 Bit Toughpads.
I am using the NMEA Logger option to write some of the NMEA commands to a text file, that one of our client programs reads (It had problems reading from a virtual COM port, so we swapped it back to read from a text file) so we don't want to use the date/time option on the filename, as it would create complications for the reading program, as it can be on 24x7.
GPSGate service runs, so that it starts on boot each time. It creates the file and everything is good, other than I would really like to delete the file on startup each time to reduce its size.
I cant see any option in GPSGate to do this. As otherwise it a bit difficult for a non-admin user to delete the file, as you need admin to either stop/start the service or use movefile.exe to delete the file.

Any ideas ?
