If you have upgraded your Web Client from an earlier version to version 7.0, read the following sections about installation and how to use the upgraded Web Client tool with existing deployments.
If you intend to use the Web client on Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 Server, you need to first install the latest Windows Installer module on your machine. This is available via the Windows Update feature in Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 Server.
Upgrading to the new version of the Web Client
adds a new folder named
700 to the
client folder of the WebServer
If you're planning on installing Web Client
version 7.0 but want to view legacy (that is, pre-version 7.0)
deployments, before installing the new version, back up your old
deployments to a durable storage medium and place them in a secure
location. Then, after installing the new version, copy your old
deployment(s) back to the
folder (see above), and the legacy .cab file(s) to the
corresponding folder in the
folder; this will make your old deployments available for use.
Creating new deployments
When creating a new deployment, be aware that the .cab file you use (Client Control) for the deployment needs to correspond to the correct version of the project you want to access or the deployment will not succeed. For example, to create a deployment based on a version 6.0 CitectSCADA project, from the Client Control menu choose 600/filename.cab; to create a deployment based on a version 7.0 CitectSCADA project, from the Client Control menu choose 700/filename.cab.
Deploying a project from within CitectSCADA
If you are deploying a project from within
CitectSCADA, edit the
[webserver] section in your
citect.ini file to specify the
correct cab file for the version of the Web Client you're using.
For example, for a version 7.0 deployment, specify a .cab file
located in the
700 folder; for a
6.0 version, specify the
