One final attempt at trying to understand what you are talking about. For future reference it would be a great help to everyone if you used consistent, standard terminology. You will get an answer quicker that way. So, does your layout look like this diagram? If this is not accurate, can you use the ...

Are you using the same data server instance for both apps? A typical Rockwell FTVIEW SE installation provides two xxxxLinx service instances. Usually the second instance is. xxxxLinx instance 02 You can use the same instance for both apps. My experience has been wonky behavior if I use more than ...

Mike, Where does this USB drive exist in relation to the controller? Are you talking about a USB drive plugged into the PanelView+ ports or is it on some other device on the same subnet as the controller. Is the intended use a continual stream of information or is it a one-shot sort of "load this ...

As someone that works in 21CFR11 environments every day, I agree you should consider a thin client solution. You might also consider a panel that has a PC either as part of the panel or sits separate from the panel in a cabinet or enclosure. I strongly recommend that you do NOT use a PanelView with embedded ...

Thank you Michael. As I gave more thought to your original answer I understood and your additional explanation is appreciated as it confirmed that I understood your explanation. Thank you ------------------------------ Bob Yunk ------------------------------

Michael, While the original post was not mine, I appreciate your answer and the kb article explaining the reasoning. I have debated each scenario myself more than once when determining architectures for new systems for new clients. On one occasion the system was almost complete before I determined ...

Hi Chris, As you have already seen, this all works just fine using your current version 10.x This is just a personal opinion but unless v11.x has other features you can't live without, why upgrade and generate those "Dangit. I didn't expect to happen just because I upgraded". The percentage of finding ...

It is unclear to me exactly what you are doing when you get the error message. Sorry, I'm a little slow sometimes. It sounds like (tell me if any of these are incorrect): you are trying to configure a new VM (lets call it VM2) to be the new directory server but when you try to make that assignment ...

Michael, If I am not mistaken, it sounds like you have everything, the ME runtime, the OPC server, and the ME app on a single machine, When you say "having trouble linking the two together to pass info" do you mean your difficulty is that you are unable to map Modbus tags in the HMI development environment ...

Just last month I was working on a system that was an extreme example of the problem. The information in Activation manager displayed incorrectly for activations in use, activations that were bound to specific machines "lost" some of their correct bindings with the added bonus of borrowed licenses being ...

I was not able to find the macro that I created many years ago for this conversion, but I did find something fairly similar I created for a different purpose. I am trying to find an hour or two to try modifying it or at least commenting it better so you might be able to modify it yourself to suit your ...

Is this your single repository for all licenses that are going to be used from a pool? If so do all the other HMI servers have this machine in their Activation search path? My experience has been that the "In Use" indicator frequently doesn't match-up with reality. In other words, I don't think this ...

Mario, I apologize I completely forgot about this. I have a pretty good idea where those scripts are in my pile of very old backups. I saw the folder not too long ago. I will search tomorrow for them and we can work out a way to get them to you. They are actually Excel Macros. Depending on which version ...

Mario, The format of graphic objects between Fix32 and RSView or FTView are so dissimilar making a direct conversion would be extraordinarily difficult. I have done one conversion in the other direction, from FactoryTalk View to Fix32. I was not able to find or develop my own graphics conversion engine. ...

Alfredo, This would typically be a pretty straightforward task. Can you provide what conditions you want to use that will cause the sequence to go straight to the next step and what conditions you want to use to force the sequence to branch to an out of order step. What have you tried and what were ...
