Using Secure Viewer as Alternative to Web Browser V1.01 In some situations, you may not want to have a full-featured Web browser installed and running on a plant floor station. You can install the InduSoft Secure Viewer (Viewer.exe) as an alternative to the browser. This program provides the same functionality as a Web Thin Client without the unwanted features of a full browser. When you start the Secure Viewer, it immediately connects to the specified Web and Data Servers and loads the IWS application. No user direction is required. Installing The Secure Viewer on a Windows PC To install the Secure Viewer on a Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 computer: Request the Secure Viewer (Thin Client) installer from the web page list below, save it to the designated computer, and start it. http://www.icpdas.com/products/Software/InduSoft/Download_PC.htm Follow the instruction of the installation wizard. configured during installation.

For example, for usesr who use NTWebServer.exe as web server, the NTWebServer.exe should be executed in project folder (ex: C:\InduSoft_Project) instead of web folder (ex: C:\InduSoft_Project\Web). Server IP: Enter the IP address or hostname of the TCP/IP Server Finish the installation and click Finish to close the installer. The installation wizard automatically installs and registers the Web Thin Client ActiveX component (ISSymbol.ocx), so if you have correctly configured the URL and Server IP settings, then the Secure Viewer should be ready to go. Changing the Secure Viewer Configuration The configuration of the Secure Viewer is saved in the viewer.ini file, which should be in the same directory (Ex: C:\Program Files\InduSoft Secure Viewer v6.1\) as Viewer.exe. To change the configuration of the Secure Viewer after it has been installed, you can run the Viewer configuration utility (ViewerCfg.exe) that was also installed at the same directory as Viewer.exe. The configuration utility provides the following options: Load button: Click to load a viewer.ini file into the utility for editing. Save button: Click to save your changes to the viewer.ini file.
