We recently upgraded a customer’s version to 7.2.1, then to 7.2.2. After the upgrade to 721, if the computer that Ignition is running on is rebooted, two things happen: 1) on all tags that are set for alarming, the area where we fill in the Alert Name, under the digital settings section is erased (what we had in there is erased, not the box itself), and in the same section where you set the value to either 0/false or 1/true, is always set back to 0/false. Issue 2) when we export the tags from that PC, then try to open the csv file, it instead opens it as unicode.
I think there may be a problem with the install in that particular PC because we upgraded two other PC’s too, and they don’t have the same issue. Infact, we exported the tag group from a PC with a good install of 722, imported them into the proj on the questionable PC, and everything looks good…until the computer is rebooted. If it stays running there’s no problems, but it seems that if the gateway is shut-down, that is when the problems occur. When we upgraded [all of the PC’s] we didn’t first uninstall the previous version of Ignition, we installed on top of the existing version. Could that have a negative impact? We are going to trying a fresh install today and will let you know the outcome.
