Step 1.1 Distribute the OPC Server Files

You can use  any OPC Foundation Compliant OPC server for the Advanced Viewer.

Make sure, and confirm that the OPC Server you plan to use is:

Installed correctly and can be accessed by an OPC client.

Registered so Windows can find it when an OPC client asks for it by name.

Note: Windows looks up the OPC Server location in the registry.

 The OPC Server directory can be on the same node as the Advanced Viewer or a different node; the node can be referenced in the Ptopc_config.xml file, which is also part of the OPC Server setup.
