Customer has a specification requirement to be able to open and edit MNL or MNB controller application files via a link on the associated I/A Series (Niagara) G3 graphic screen.
I/A Series (Niagara) G3 ENS Server
A WorkPlace Tech application file can NOT be opened automatically via a I/A Series (Niagara) G3 graphic link for the following reasons:
- Workplace Tech does not have a provision for opening an application file from the command line.
- The WorkPlace Tech Tool software would have to be installed on each computer that needed to open an application.
- The WorkPlace Tech Tool software would need a separate license for each computer on which it is installed.
- There are no provisions for centrally managing a shared WorkPlace Tech application library.
A WorkPlace Tech application CAN be viewed via the Visio Viewer application. This can be performed via a graphic link provided that the Visio Viewer application is already installed on the computer being used to view the application file.
