FactoryTalk View Studio stores project data centrally. This results in the following restrictions:
To create a base version, you will need to manually produce the APA file via the application manager and copy this file into the working directory.
- During a comparison, versiondog checks to see if FactoryTalk View Studio is installed on the client. If the editor is not installed, the working directory will be compared with the previous version. When you install the editor, the working directory will be automatically updated by a new APA file produced for the project. For this, versiondog uses the Application Manager’s backup function.
- After a Check-Out or restore, it will also checked if Factory Talk View Studio is installed on the client. Only if the editor is installed, will the checked-out APA files be unpacked back into the FactoryTalk View Studio's central data storage. For this, versiondog uses the Application Manager’s restore function.
- The logical view and change check always use the project data in the local working directory in the background, not the FactoryTalk View Studio’s central storage.
