Updating Older IDS Versions of KEPServerEX


Last Update: 11/12/2018

Problem:
New features have been added to the IDS interface that need to be enabled.

Solution:
iFix will alarm differently depending on the version of the IDS driver with which it is dealing. To update iFIX PDB and enable the new features, refer to the instructions below.

  1. To start, create a new registry string value called "Version" under the "KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Intellution\Drivers\IDS" key if it does not already exist.
  2. Next, set the Version to the current version of IDS (which is 7.25i at the time of this writing). Any value >= 6 will work.
  3. Open the Database Manager and export the database. Then, import the database and replace all IDS tags by clicking Yes to All.
  4. Save the database.
