Like the rest of the planet, we're currently suffering from long lead times on anything with magic smoke in it. We have a couple of Ignition Edge systems to deploy shortly and our hardware will not arrive in time. We have a couple of spare MacBook Pro's lying around.
Can we install Ignition Edge on an apple device, develop the application, and then simply back up/restore onto a Windows 10 IOT PC later? The only threads I can find on the topic of cross-platform backup and restore are from >10 years ago and reference only 32-bit and 64-bit windows, I can't see anything about going from Apple to PC.
Should be possible, I'm not a Mac guy but I've definitely done Linux->Windows and vice versa. At the end of the day, the GWBK is a zip containing Ignition data. The install process on each system will take care of placing the .conf etc in the correct location, and the GWBK process will simply override those files.
p.s. IIRC from PLCtalk, you are based in Aus? Do OnLogic have a presence there? They might not have the exact spec I always want, but generally have an alternate model that will do the job in reasonable lead times.
@Matrix_Engineering yes, I'm the same ASF from PLCTalk, and yes, in Australia. A quick google leads me to believe that OnLogic don't have a presence here as such, but there are some distributors. I'll check out their range as a possibility for future projects. Thanks for the tip!
