When I start my Citect server it freezes and says that the Alarm Server is not responding. The Runtime Manager shows "Not Responding" for the Alarm Server process.


This can be caused by having a space in the Project Name. The reason that the process becomes unresponsive is because the Alarm Server cannot open the Project _ Cluster _ALMINDEXSAVE.DAT file.

Citect has confirmed this to be a problem in Version 7.0. A fix for this problem shall be available in Version 7.0 Service Pack A and Version 7.10. In the mean time, make sure that your CitectSCADA project does not have a space in the name.
