Update on this project:
I installed PAC Project on my all in one PC. I only selected to install PAC Display, SoftPAC and Tools (PAC Terminal). I then started SoftPAC. Then loaded my .cdf file (that I built on a different PC) with PAC Terminal. Then in the SoftPAC control panel, I started the strategy. 1 chart running – good to go. Then I copied my protected Display Project to the all in one and started Display Runtime and pointed it to that Display Project. Display Runtime comes up and loads my Display Project. I can see it loaded the values from SoftPAC. In this little project I have an Upload and a Download recipe button. When I click either the upload or download, it comes up with an error window which states:
“Error opening strategy file”
"Cannot open “
my path from the computer I programmed it with
At this point, why does it even care where the .idb file is? Can anyone clear this up for me?
Of course, to make this work, I copy the .idb file to the place where it is looking for it and then everything works just fine, but why must I have a copy of the .idb file if I won’t be editing the Display Project on this PC any more?
