You may remember my last post about trying to call a stored procedure from a tag value change, that all worked out now (was due to the stored procedure being defined by a user not in the db - never forget Ignition isn’t responsible for everything!).
Here’s my current issue. I am using Igntition in trial mode on a VM. I am trying to get the event to now trigger on the first Sunday of every month. Now changing the computer’s date does change the tag values appropriately, but fast fowarding two hours does instantly kill the trial mode. Which, is not that big of a deal, I set it up to be 10 5-10 minutes before Saturday/Sunday midnight so I can reset the trial. However, when the day flips over, my logs show this error

Here’s my tag change, I added a logger to write just on the day change over midnight and that too doesn’t get triggered -

The expression for currentValue.value is
dayOfMonth(now()) and the expression for dayOfWeek is
Anyone know why this is failing to fire? Is it due to me changing the internal clock to try to make it run? Is there another way I can test this?
