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.

According to the r

I started a project in VTSCADALight, but had to get a license due to the tag count. How do I activate the license on an existing installation? Couldn't find this anywhere in the software or the help files.

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.
If I check Task Manager, I can find 1-5 instances of

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.

<Format name="SinglePopupCustom">

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,

How do I enable the permissions so I can update the value of the system tag "MobileBrowserAutoRefreshPeriod"? I can see it in the advanced view of the system properties but it is greyed out.

We are testing this scada system.
It's really nice.
We have made an application with 20 tags, and we want to have access to it from an external network through the vpn solution, is it possible?
When we try to connect using the get from workstation option and setting the ip for vpn we get an unavailable workstation message.

Someone knows how we can connect

I have a String Entry connected to a String I/O tag.
The value of the String I/O is now my name. If I click it, it becomes editable.
But I want it to be locked, uneditable and unselectable. I can toggle Enable Output on the String I/O, this prevents editing. But the blinking dash is still there.
I have tried making a opaque square on top of the text, that can

How is the video support in VTScada, can't find any good info in neither Developers Guide or Programmers guide.

I am using EmbedWebpage.SRC

As example, Youtube works OK, but with a lot of lag. The video format that VTScada is able to show, is WebM - I have not been able to play any other formats.

What I'd really like to do, is to implement a browser

I have a large mobile treatment facility that has not been operated in 4 or 5 years. I just recently refurbished the entire set up and went to launch the scada computer only to find out it is completely shot. I have an old back up of the scada folder but it does not tell me what SCADA program was used to develop. I am hoping that I can utilize VT Scada to import the old programming but have no id

I want to use the values from scaling on a tag - in an expression.
<M251_simulator\Modbus_Driver\SensorNivå1\"Scaled Min">] / 20 * 5
or rather something like this:

[*Numeric\"Scaled Min"] / 20 * 5
This is not working. Gives an error.

What am I doing wrong.
