SXDIRECT variable tags display correctly on the I/O server PC, but display an incorrect value or 0 on clients.

This can be caused by having different versions of SXDIRECT on the client and server. One PC may have a different version of Citect installed or may have an updated SXDIRECT driver pack installed.

A renumbering of the data types defined in SXDIRECT.DBF occurred in SXDIRECT v1.00.04.000. To correct the problem, install the same SXDIRECT driver version on all Citect PCs so they will have matching SXDIRECT.DBF files. Then, disable Incremental Compile in the Project Editor | Tools menu | Options, and recompile and restart the project on each PC.
