Popup Window Does not Appear when Clicking “Select” in Tagname Dictionary

When working in the Tagname Dictionary in an InTouch HMI application, clicking the Select button should cause the Tag Browser popup window to appear, allowing the user to browse the existing tags in the application.

Under certain conditions, the popup window will not appear after clicking Select and the WindowMaker application will freeze up, forcing the user to shut down the application.

This issue is caused when WindowMaker attempts to open the Tag Browser on a second monitor when no second monitor is present.  This tech note will provide the steps to resolve the issue.

OI Server Diagnostics not Appearing on Remote Nodes

Within the Operations Control Management Console (OCMC, previously called the SMC or System Management Console), you are able to connect to a remote node within the Operations Interface Server Manager section and access the configuration of the OI Servers installed and running there.  However, it is possible to encounter an issue where the configuration of the remote OI Servers does not appear within the OCMC.  The root cause of this behavior is security settings that are part of newer versions of Windows.

This tech note will provide  steps with some recommendations to resolve the issue.
