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.
I was wondering if there is a list of all the keyboard shortcut keys. Over the years I have found that learning the shortcut keys will save you a lot of time in the long run so I am a big fan. In particular right now I am working in the Idea Studio and in other programs you might use "Ctrl-G" to group the selected objects or "Ctrl-U" to ungroup them. Another might be "Alt-Down Arrow" to evenly s
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
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 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,
We suddenly lost the ability to acknowledge alarms on our system and we are not sure why. We have stopped/started the software and that has not helped. We have also notice a slight delay in receiving some of our alarms. Any suggestions?
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.

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
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 think there is some bug related to the Selector Switches. I have spent countless hours on this, and by accident found a way to make it work. Meaning this must be some bug.
If I make more than a couple Selector Switches, the next one appear with no data. Like 40310 below. I have the exact same settings, because I copy the working Switch. I only change the adress. Scanning
