The VTScada on my laptop will not run as an application.

Every time I try to launch it, I get

Error "VTScada is currently running as a service"

"Starting VTScada as an application requires stopping the service, which could disrupt other users or the operation of this installation.

It is recommended that configuration be performed on a machine that doesn't host a VTScada service.

We have been unable to configure our ModbusTCP driver to 0 address offset. Can you please advise?
We did the following:
1) Make a Context Tag (which will be the parent of the TCP driver)
2) Go to Settings, and add a property: "ModiconTypedAddr1Offset". We set the value to 0.

We have also been unable to write to coils. Could you provide an example of how to write specific bit

I am having a problem reading tags from my OPC Server using VTScada Light. The server is located on an external PC and the connection to the client PC is made through DCOM. I know the DCOM configuration is correct because I can use Matrikon OPC Explorer on the client PC to read all the servers and tags on the external PC. I just can't replicate this within VTScada. This first screensho

Is CSV Import to Historian supported on VTScadaLight?

I am trying to import historic data from CSV files into some tag history. I followed all the instructions on the process, but when I restart the application, it does not load the CSV files after loading and starting the tags.

I have the CSVHistory directory in my application's Data directory, I added the TagMapping.CSV file and the on

We have an application in which the customer wishes to rearm priority 1 alarms if they stay in the alarm state for an extended period. He also would like the rearmed alarm to re-send a notification upon rearming. I have not seen anything in the manual about this being possible, but all attempts of trying it did not work. The alarm would in fact rearm, but no new notifications were sent. I had

We are trying to establish a connection from our clients on a local network to the primary application server. Firewalls have been disabled and I am using a LAN network for testing.

Need a report to list alarms active in time frame that I can use with a report tag to email to bean counters.

Due to impending weather at multiple locations.

I've been trying to alter the QuarterHour,src example but the help file doesn't say where to save it so I get a file not found error importing it.

I have a small OEM style PLC with Modbus TCP support. VTSCADA easily reads data from the the controller. When "Enable Output" is checked however, there is no change in the PLC data table when "manual data" is entered.

A third party Modbus Simulator has no problem writing the data to the PLC.

VTS presents NO ERRORS on the Modbus Status.

The PLC Support folks say to use

I have 1 questions.
When i push switch button program send logic 1 to device but when I don't push switch button program still send logic 1.
I want to know how i can do for when i don't push switch button program send logic 0.

I'd like to set up a Modbus Compatible Device driver to act as a virtual PLC. I then want a separate machine to poll this virtual PLC via Modbus TCP to read the values in the Virtual PLC registers.

Is this possible - and if so, how do I set this up? I have tried creating a virtual PLC and put an analog tag with a value in there, but I cannot get a Modbus Client device to successfully connect
