I have configured VTScada as a SNMP agent and generated a MIB file from the application. I have followed the SNMP agent configuration according to the following steps:

SNMPAgentEnable Value = 1
SNMPAgentIPListener Value = SNMP IP Listener Tag
Create SNMP Agent Widget on Idea Studio
Generate MIB file
Load MIB file using MIB browser but unable to GET any values

When you try to do a "Plain Excel XLS File" report, it fails with the error "Unable to generate report. Invalid data source."

You can also get a similar response when you try to use the print wizard on the Historical Data Viewer.

It appears this is being caused by changes to the Microsoft JET drivers in an October update. The new JET drivers can be found here for 2010 -

Isn't there a way to lock objects, and see which object is on which layer, and lock and turn off layers. And a way to know and decide which object to chose.

I am making Widgets with 5-6 icons on top of each other at several places, opacy turned on by digital inputs, and changes affected by alarms and warnings. It is a nightmare to pick the right object.

Even on a normal page, I keep picki

I have created my digital input tags and drew the tags with widgets. However, the logging of the DI tags in the historical viewer is not shown unless I leave the Historical Viewer open. Hence, the DI data before I open the Historical viewer is not logged. As for the analog input tags, the tags are logged autonomously based on real-time values even the Historical Viewer is not open. How can I conf

I have problem connecting the SNMP driver to VTScada as well as importing the MIB file. Is there a way to troubleshoot the driver connection and the error for loading the MIBs under the SNMP address?
My port is valid but my SNMP driver is invalid.
Thanks for the help in advance.

What does it mean what a trend says data retrieval in progress? Everything works fine at first, but when I look at the trends after my project has been running a while none show data and say "Data Retrieval in Progress".

I have recently downloaded and installed VT SCADA on my desktop. We are about to purchase the full version and I want to do some training and testing at my desk. I have installed in on two other computers and it works fine. But for some reason on my desktop it shows the start splash screen and then just shuts down and closes before it actuals starts the program. The desktop is fairly new and

SiteDraw outer ring turns red over things like;

Socket Connection Not Ready
Socket ID is not valid
Unknown Socket Error
Which if I understand these things will generate a retry because these are TCP port devices.

How can I get these to be less scary to the end user.

I tried explaining the function of the outer ring and why it turns red, but to no avail.

I have been having some problems with import/export of tags.

Latest problem:


Window is stuck here. Constantly processing. But I can see the changes is done in the running VTScada. Impossible to close the window, I must kill it with Task Manager.

Earlier problems:
Stuck at Exporting, never gets finished.

I want to extract ONLY the Description of the last Active alarm, and put in a tag. This way I can set any font size on the dynamic alarm text.

I have tried making custom XML alarm settings, and I get the data I want.

I can't figure out how my scenario is special, but I cannot find any settings for this.

I have a Roster with 10 persons.

First person - gets alarm, does not Ack.
Second person - gets alarm, does not Ack.
Third person - gets alarm, ACK's by email - get's confirmation on ACK

Second person wakes up - ACK's the alarm, does not get an answer.

Shouldn't one get a confir

I have tried to make my own custom Alarm page setup.
When I am using just a few settings like this, it works.

But I need all the features, but with custom columns.
It looks OK, but none of the alarms/history is showing. Have a broken the link to the Alarm database?

This is my new AlarmListFormats.XML ->

Why does this happen?

I make a numeric entry in a Widget.
Looks like this.
And I have made a PNG which I will overlay. Moving the PNG on top of the numeric entry. Looks exactly how I want it.
If I use this Widget on a page, this happens in runtime.
The digits just move to the left, messing up the design.
If I look at the page in Idea Studio,
