A system administrator can control how Alarm Viewer opens and what alarms it displays on a runtime server or viewer.
Very commonly, the Alarm Viewer that is embedded in a CimView screen starts when the runtime server or viewer is booted.
Also commonly, an operator can click an icon on the Windows desktop to open a pre-configured Alarm Viewer.
In other instances, the Alarm Viewer can be started through the Windows Start menu.
Note: If the user has not logged in a CIMPLICITY® Login dialog box displays and the user must log in before the CimView screen can be enabled.
