Thats a good thought path and makes sense.....except the whole "move to other screen and it works"....part. That one I cannot make any connection to, it indicates a PC error...….but FtvSe shows the command was registered meaning that the PC portion worked right, and FTvSE "seems" to be working right........but ...

Technical term is "Monitor" and in the EGalaxy Touch application (application used to map and calibrate Touch monitors on VersaView Hardware) they are referred to as "Monitors" . NOW, I am assuming this is running VersaView hardware; is that accurate? If so, re-map and calibrate. But honestly that ...

RSLinx and FTlinx are the same product, FTLinx is the newer version. I dislike FTLinxs standalone UI but the features it adds inside FTvStudio are nice; I still use RSLinx Classic for most standalone work as it seems to navigate the network better; but it is being phased out. Checking compatibility ...

I have been confused from the first day you posted, but I think it's due to how you are describing the environment and not so much with the problem you are seeing. I have been under the impression that Mill A had ONE computer with 2 monitors and two clients running from the same project; and that ...

ah, so you don't know if the tag is actually being sent. is FTv Studio installed on the HMI? if not you should be able to open the diagnostics viewer. you need to watch the diagnostics and see if FT is sending the command at all.

Is it just the "touch" that does not work on the left screen? when the client is on the left can you use the mouse to activate the buttons? if mouse works and touch is sporadic then try re-mapping the screen and calibrate. How old is the screen in question?

My first instinct is to run patches, the environment you have set up should work and since it does work on another station there is no reason it shouldn't be working here. Which indicates an "RA Feature".... But then you mention; "2. All that was changed or different was I added a second project ...

I assume it is related to the SQL database FT builds on, SA User Service. appears there is no documentation anywhere on what it does exactly but based on it being a user service and your description I would start looking at failed log in attempts against the AD. Windows system logs on your TM server ...

If you can either run Ft studio in the background or open the diagnostics viewer, then load the problem screen. Before you click on anything to initiate the crash check the diagnostics to see if you can identify any components of the display file that is not working correctly. I suspect that you have ...

No, there is no tool to do what you want; the built in editor is barely good enough for alarm setup, much less editing maintenance. There are several "identifiers" used to maintain the connections between HMI Alarm Name, the Tag, The display message, and the history; changing any one or more of those ...

I strongly recommend upgrading if you can, version 11 or newer. starting with V10 you can define this in the Client under advanced settings > security and Debug. the Text form the help doc is as follows: Advance settings -Security and debugging The following table shows options in ...

This is how I do all of my Alarm edits now, but as a OEM so the approach might not be ideal, as mentioned above, for in-house or SI. I do all of my edits as XML because I seem to have issues with file compatibility on CSV. I no longer name my alarms in the HMI specific, I just number them Alarm_1 ...

okay, so after I ran patches and was able to get to the tag browser, those tags now appear in my converted application. so i guess the answer to the issue is "Run Patches" which i should have just done first lol.

so far, no, that is not the solution. but since Factorytalk is not able to open the tag browser where the cursor focus is i am currently not able to access my tag browser due to my screen configuration being different at home.

Well, not really. because as stated in my OP even after converting a Local Station Project to a Network Station project I still do not see these tags. Now, I did just run patches and i tried to go back, once again to verify. But since I have moved from my work office to the my home office and in doing ...

The fact that this issues still exist in V13 is annoying, of all of the software I use on a daily basis Factorytalk is the only one to have issues with sub windows opening off screen. There have been many changes in Windows in recent years and for the most part it seems the ability to select an off screen ...

One of the features of V13 that perked my interest is the introduction of Client tags and how they could help with ThinManager deployments where I need Client file specific tags for certain task. It appears in the limited documentation I can find, that the Client Tags only work in SE Network Distributed ...
