Memory Devices

In previous versions of CitectSCADA an I/O Device could be defined as a memory device by setting the port value to "Memory". This was generally done for one of the following purposes:

You can still use I/O Devices for future or virtual devices in version 7.0, but manually set the Port parameter to an unused value other than Memory, and set the Memory property of the device to True to indicate that it is an offline in-memory device before running the Migration Tool.

You need to review your project to identify which memory I/O Devices are local variable holders and which ones need to be changed to non-memory so that the Migration tool does not convert their variables.

The Migration Tool will set any I/O Device's port which is identified as a Memory device to the new Local Variable, and the original device record will be deleted.
