CitectSCADA installations on different computers over the same network can share the same project. After a project has been created on one computer, other computers on the same network can linkA copy of a library item, possessing the properties of the library original. Because it is linked, the copy is updated whenever the original is changed. to the same project, but only if the project location is on a shared or network drive. Once linked, the remote project is visible in the local Citect Explorer, and can be edited and compiled over the network. Only one version of a project ever exists, and this version has to be kept on the computer it was created upon.
Note: Linking to a project provides the developer with normal access and control to the project, even though it might be on a remote machine over the network.
Note: It is possible to delete a linked project, even though it might be on a remote machine over the network. unlink a project rather than delete it over the network.

UNINTENDED EQUIPMENT OPERATION
Restart the client process if the hardware alarm "Cicode library timestamp differs" is raised after a page is opened.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment damage.
Note: A hardware alarm of "Cicode library timestamp differs" will be raised if the Cicode library used by a page has a different timestamp from the one in memory. The timestamps will be different if the project has been fully recompiled, the project has been incrementally recompiled after the page has been modified, or if the project has been incrementally recompiled after any Cicode has been modified.
