📖HomeBack Please read the information below prior to installing Geo SCADA Expert 2019 for important information on any known issues.
Upgrading a Server Also Running Virtual ViewX Server
If an existing server is running the Geo SCADA Server and the Virtual ViewX Server, you must upgrade both. If you omit to upgrade Virtual ViewX then you will see issues when starting ViewX or creating a Virtual ViewX session.
Virtual ViewX Installation on Windows 10
Occasionally an additional dialog will appear at the end of the installation process. This dialog looks like the Virtual ViewX Manager tool. Please close this dialog, and respond to the installation dialog which requests the computer is rebooted.
Licensing for Web clients changed in Geo SCADA 2019 and remains the same for Geo SCADA 2020. This note is relevant if you are upgrading from ClearSCADA. Please read the Release Notes of Geo SCADA 2019 for a full explanation of Virtual ViewX licensing.
In brief, Virtual ViewX requires a separately installed Virtual ViewX license for the number of clients per web server. Also the web server itself requires a client license for the database connections - this is sold as a Virtual ViewX web server license.
Blurry Maps and/or Lists on high DPI displays using Text Scaling
High resolution displays that are configured to use Text Scaling can result in displays of Geo SCADA's Map Displays and Lists to be noticeably pixelated and blurry. The impact for Map Displays is aesthetic only and should not impact useability, however applying non-standard scaling impacts the display of Lists because the table content becomes too wide for the column width, obscuring some content from view.
A problem with exporting Crystal Reports on Windows 8 and 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2 has been identified. It is triggered by the report containing Boolean parameters with the "Exclusive group" option enabled. Subject to confirmation, the likely cause is the SAP crystal run-time rather than Geo SCADA Expert 2020.
On a clean installation, the classes for OPCDA, OPCAE and OPCHDA servers are not registered. The user would need to open the Client Configuration dialog and click OK on the configured connection for the OPC classes to be registered. This was changed in 2015 to add support for the Systems.xml file.
