Applies To:
  • CitectSCADA 3.xx, 4.xx, 5.xx

Running Citect when the data/history directory is not in the Citect root directory (the default location of the data/history directory when Citect is first installed), gives an error message: "Path : '[data]:cpu' not suitable for trend files". 

A new parameter called [CTEDIT] DisableCheckDataPath has been created.  Having the parameter value set to 1 in the citect.ini file removes the restriction on the data directory location.

CIT has confirmed this to be a problem in Citect for Windows versions 3.XX to 5.21. This problem has been fixed in version 5.21 Service Pack A.
