Having downloaded and installed the latest PACProject I am now getting some problems with its use.
Firstly, after install and then running PACDisplay Runtime I get an error message indicating that the Scanner can not be found. I then have to uninstall PACProject and start PACDisplay Runtime again once PACProject has been reinstalled, this time Runtime opens without the previous Scanner error. This has happened on two PC’s so far running different PACProjects but the same updated version of PACProject. I have another 5 machines to upgrade yet!!!
Secondly, once I have PACRuntime open, switching between screens is slow and cumbersome, not instant like it was with the previous PACProject version. Also hovering over graphics which should highlight the graphic to show it can be selected takes an age with a long lag taking place. Changing a PID loop via a PACRunime graphic from Manual to Automatic for example takes far too long a time until the graphic updates.
Thirdly, in a Combined trending graph the ability to see a value and time stamp when clicking on the trend line in Historic mode seems to have disappeared altogether for some reason.
To further add to this post, the mouse pointer now seems to have a mind of its own when being used within PACRuntime. Sometimes clicking on a graphic can cause the mouse pointer to disappear and then reappear somewhere else on the screen. This only happens within PACDisplay Runtime.
If a window is opened it seems to take an age to show the values within text graphics. It may take 5 to 15 seconds for the graphics to update and then show the values associated with them.
I have just been studying your downloads section to see if I can decide which PACProject is the latest one.
At present there is one version of PACProject, one version of PACDisplay and one version of PACControl.
All three seem to indicate that they will install PACProject. They were all created on 2nd Oct 2018. It seems that the most up to date PACProject file is indeed entitled PACProject but I don’t understand why the other two updates would be left on the download site if they are no longer of any use, it just seems to add to the confusion of which is the latest update.
Any help with these problems would be greatly appreciated.
