No Almsave.dat or syslog.dat file was created for my project. The project compiled correctly, and everything else appears to be working correctly. I am running in multiprocess mode.

The issue can be caused by having a "\" backslash in your cluster name. Cluster names follow the same convention as variable tags and hence the compiler will pass cluster names with backslashes. Since the Alarmsave.dat file and syslog.dat file include the cluster name and Windows treats the backslash as a directory path, the files cannot be created. The workaround is to not use a backslash in the cluster name.

This issue will be fixed in a future version of Citect.
