iFIX 5.5 showing all tags as error 1750 Not Defined.
tdcolumbia posted a topic in HMI & SCADAAdded new tags to an existing (and operational) PDB file. Using DEMO mode switch (/t) to quickly add without USB dev dongle. When switching from Workspace to Runtime all tags and graphics work. However, when I switch out of DEMO mode and restart iFix, all tags show up as "Not Defined". the IGS OPC Quick Client shows good comms and data with the new PLC sources, so it's not a PLC comms issue.Truth be told, I do not work on iFix very often, so I'm hoping I just missed a simple step.Thanks in advance!

Moving iFix 3.5 App to a different machine
Rick M posted a topic in GEHello everyone, I need to move an iFix 3.5 application to a new machine (VMWAre W2K session). The application is set up to communicated via ABRSTSR driver to 3 SLC/505 series PLCs (my VMWare session is not connected to any PLC) and starts in run mode. When iFix starts up, I get a CoCreatedInstance() Failed error messages that I can't shut off and following this, I get probably a dozen Workspace errors saying "Error occurred in d:\ifix3x\dynamic library\scripting\project.cpp at line ..." By the time I finally get to Login as an administrator, the Workspace Runtime locks up due to communications transaction errors. I get another error window asking if I want to Skip or Skip All. Neither option works. The application basically locks up right as I get into Development mode and I can't do anything. In other words, I can't shut off the runtime because I can't get into development mode. I tried a number of things, including removing tasks from the task configuration SCU. I can't find any information about this online and no information on iFix 3.5 either. This application is from 2002. Any help is welcome. I was trying to force the Workspace into Configuration (Development mode) before starting up, but haven't found a way to do this either. Thanks, Rick
MBE Driver can't save config file
horvatmiha posted a topic in GEHello!I am using MBE Driver v7.46b on Windows Server 2012 R2. Problem is that I can't save config file. I can edit Channels, devices and data blocks, I can see incomming values, I save a file without any message. But config file is not saved. In Event viewer I get error as you can see on picture. It says: Error writing to system registry: Driver App 00000001 \Driver defaults. Other error says: Error writing to system registry: ServerMsg 00C54BB8 \Driver defaults.Is it server or driver problem? Please help. At the moment I can't edit anything in driver so I can't configure it to use it with my SCADA iFIX 5.8
iFIX 5.9 - FIX Dynamics Real Time Database - Database Columns
JC posted a topic in GEHello, I am having an issue with FIX Dynamics Real Time Database and the database columns available within when trying to query the database. On a system running iFIX 5.0, there are 19 data columns available, LHS of attached screenshot (in the screenshot example, crystal reports is used to view the columns). However in iFIX 5.9, only 15 columns are available (RHS of attached screenshot ), how can these missing columns be made available to be accessed? Regards, John

Store and Display multiple BITMAPS on a picture IFIX
Billiam posted a topic in GEHi all, This may sound like silly questions but I'm not sure whats best way to approach this apologies if it has been answered already I tried searching but didn't find anything related. What I want to do is : 1.)Add multiple bitmaps to picture in IFIX (Adding bitmap isn't problem. I'm worried that if I add 6 bitmaps to picture at once and layer them it may slow up system ??) 2.) Is there option for calling a bitmap from location in a picture and resizing bitmap when a certain tag is True ? 3.) The job I'm trying to achieve is, operator has choice of 6 axis to select on machine . They can download one axis at time to manually move axis on machine. What I want do is when the axis is loaded I want to load bitmap on screen show picture of the axis there going to move basically photo of axis physically on machine . And when they load new axis a new picture of that axis is displayed. Any suggestion would be great. Thanks in advance,

IFIX Scada communication issues
krysmberg posted a topic in GEI am new to ifix, I am having an issue, I am unable to receive any information, after attempting to fix the fact that the view was only pulling half the data I lost it all, I had a back up saved, but it didn't work on restoring communication, I was getting a cannot connect to node error, but I have fixed that, now all I am getting is question marks. essentially I believe that I have two standalone computers with the ifix software and the communicate directly with various plcs that share information across, either a ring topology or full connected. so the computer I have that is working is setup with scada and the database and MB1 with no network support, the one that is not working is set up the same, my cable connection is a usb to Ethernet and im communicating with a Comm port on the computer. I've tried different comm ports, even contacted GE, they were suppose to have someone call me back but no one has yet. Can anyone give me an idea of what I've got wrong here?
GE iFIX iClient - Mutiple Display
JustMe posted a topic in GEWe are getting a new HMI system that will be running on GE iFIX and iClients. The HMI is designed for a single monitor (1920x1080) and this will be displayed on a system that can support duel monitors. We would like to use the second monitor for other windows based applications but I have been told this is not possible on an iClient system. I have no knowledge of iFix and its HMI programing but this does not seam reasonable. Can anyone provide any input on this? We mainly would like to use the second monitor to display security and video information for the plant that we already have a windows based application built. I really do not want to have an additional system just , for this considering we already have a primary and secondary iClient workstations setup. Thanks in advance for any assistance and information.
N_Locus posted a topic in GEI have restored a crashed IFIX to a new PC. The restore is ok and installed GE9 driver. With the GE9 power tools, we can observed that data transmits and recieve. The problem is that the screen scada is not updating i.e. no status/feedback, anything is happening. The LAN network TCP/IP was configured i.e. IP, subnet and gateway. Any remedies/advice is most welcome. Please provide a guide on the communication/configuration setup. Thanks
Vector671 posted a topic in HMI & SCADAHi all, First time user! I have read many articles on this site but only just joined. I have found a great body of knowledge and expertise here, over the years. Anyway, due to my poor memory I have forgotten the history of iFIX. We did several projects for a customer years ago, and now I find that my newest customer is intent on using iFIX on one of their jobs. Just out of curiosity, does anyone remember the history? Thanks to all, Vector671
