Getting Results with RSView32 Active Display System
Getting started
The RSView32™ Active Display System is an optional client/server
extension to RSView32. It enables you to load, run, and interact
remotely with RSView32 graphic displays, from almost any computer
on a network.
The RSView32 Active Display System consists of the RSView32 Active
Display Server, that runs on the computer on which RSView32 is
installed, and one or more clients that run remotely on machines
connected to the server. There are two kinds of client:


the RSView32 Active Display Station, a complete runtime
operation environment that can run on a remote client computer
the RSView32 Active Display Browser, a “rich” web client
implementation, for integrating fully interactive, real-time
RSView32 graphic displays into the Microsoft® Internet Explorer
web browser. The Active Display Browser allows you to link your
RSView32 graphic displays to other web pages, providing a
common, browser-style method of navigation to multiple
information systems in a single web browser (for example, an
intranet application).
Quick start steps
The following steps explain how to get up and running with the
RSView32 Active Display System. To work with the RSView32 Active
Display System, you will need at least one server, and one client.
Complete steps 1 and 2 in order. The other steps can be completed in
any order.

1
Step 1

Plan your implementation
To help ensure that your RSView32 project works effectively in the
client/server environment of the Active Display System, there are
some things to plan. To help you plan, more detail about the following
topics is provided in Chapter 4, Using the Active Display System.
Integrating your RSView32 application with the Active
Display System
Parts of RSView32 appear or react differently when viewed from a
client than at the server or when RSView32 is used as a standalone
product. To integrate your RSView32 project with the Active Display
System, configure your project with these differences in mind. For
more information, see page 45.
Configuring your RSView32 project for browser navigation
Because web browsers use URLs, and a ‘previous page-next page’
method of navigation, your RSView32 project needs to be modified to
work with the Active Display Browser. For more information, see
page 60.
Deploying ActiveX components automatically
If your RSView32 project uses ActiveX controls, they must be located
in a specific place on the server computer, and must be wrapped in
CAB files for clients to be able to use them. For more information, see
page 64.
Step 2

Determine system requirements
The RSView32 Active Display System consists of a server, and two
kinds of clients. Because the server and the clients can perform
different functions, they have different system requirements.


Getting Results with RSView32 Active Display System
For details about determining the system requirements for the server,
see page 7.
For details about determining the system requirements for the station
and the browser, see page 23.
Step 3

Install supporting software
For the RSView32 Active Display System to run, you may need to
install and configure some software components that provide services
to the Windows® operating system you are using. To perform its tasks
at runtime, the Active Display System “piggy-backs” on these services.

Determining which software components to install
For the RSView32 Active Display Server to run, in addition to installing
the Active Display server software, you may need to install and
configure some software components that provide services to the
Windows operating system. To perform its tasks at runtime, the Active
Display Server “piggy-backs” on these services.
The following sections provide information about installing and
configuring these components. You may not need to install and
configure all of the following components.
IMPORTANT
The order in which you install components is important.
Follow the instructions in the order in which they
appear. The Windows service pack must be installed
after all other components have been installed.

and the computer must be restarted, before the Active Display Server
can be installed.
Important:
To install the RSView32 Active Display Server
1.
Close all open Windows programs.
2.
Place the RSView32 Active Display System CD-ROM into your
CD-ROM drive. The CD should start running automatically.
If the CD does not start automatically, run D:\SETUP.EXE, where
D is the drive containing the CD.
3.

4.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
5.
During installation, you will be prompted to activate the RSView32
Active Display Server. Insert the Master disk in the disk drive, and
then click Activate. For details about activation, see the activation
utilities Help file, COPYPROT.CHM.
During installation, only one activation key of each type is moved to the
server. To connect more than one client to the Active Display Server,
you must install additional activation keys for each client. These client
keys are either installed on the Active Display Server or on the Active

FactoryTalk® Activation Grace Period
FactoryTalk® Activation provides customers with access to critical
software components for a grace period of 7 days regardless of
availability of valid activations. When a product is successfully
activated, all grace period records will be cleared and the product will
proceed with valid activations.
RSView32 Active Display Server


During the grace period, FactoryTalk® Activation will display a
warning message box to the user and log a diagnostic warning
message to FactoryTalk® Diagnostics every four hours if no valid
activation key detected.
When the grace period expires, Active Display Server will continue
to run as in the grace period until it is restarted; however, after
Active Display Server is restarted, the DisplayServerOn command
will not work.
Increasing the number of clients you can
connect to the server
By default, when you activate the RSView32 Active Display Server, you
receive one server activation.
If you see the following error message when you attempt to connect
clients to the Active Display Server, you need to increase the number
of client activations on the server. For example, if you move three
client ‘floating’ activations to the server’s hard disk, a maximum of
three floating clients will be able to use the Active Display Server at any
one time.
14


For information about how to add, remove, or update activation keys,
see the activation utilities Help file, COPYPROT.CHM.
Simultaneous client connections
Up to 20 licensed clients can connect to a server at one time.
‘Floating’ client licenses
Floating client licenses are installed on the server and “float” to
whichever client needs them. This means that the license is granted for
the exclusive use of any client while that client is connected. When the
client disconnects, the license becomes available for other client
connections.
There are two types of floating licenses: read-write licenses and viewonly licenses. Read-write licenses allow full read-write privileges. Viewonly licenses allow read-only privileges.
If a client is configured as read-write, and only view-only licenses are
available, the client will be view-only, and the activation key will
override the read-write configuration of the client.
If a client is configured as view-only, and only read-write licenses are
available, the client will use a read-write license, but the view-only
configuration of the client will override the read-write activation key,
and will allow view-only access to the project on the server.
Do not rely on the activation key to determine whether the client is
view-only. Always configure the client deliberately as view-only.
Each floating license requires one installation of the appropriate
activation key on the server. For read-write licenses, the
RSVRADS.CLI key is required. For view-only licenses, the
RSVRADS.ROC key is required. To increase the number of client
licenses available, install additional activation keys on the server. Keep
in mind, however, that no matter how many licenses you have, the
maximum number of clients that can be connected at one time is 20.
Setting up the server

15
‘Dedicated’ client licenses
Dedicated client licenses are installed on the client. These licenses
ensure a particular client will always have a license to connect to any
RSView32 Active Display Server. Keep in mind, however, that no
matter how many licenses you have, the maximum number of clients
that can be connected to a server at one time is 20. The client checks
for locally installed, dedicated licenses before requesting a floating
license from the server.
Starting and stopping the server
You cannot start or stop an Active Display Server from a remote
computer. Starting or stopping the server must take place at the server
computer, and can take place automatically when RSView32 starts or
stops. For details, see page 21.
The method you choose for starting the RSView32 Active Display
Server depends on whether you want to connect RSView32 Active
Display Browsers to the server.
If you don’t want to use the browser

Installing the RSView32 Active Display Station
There are two ways to install the RSView32 Active Display Station
software:


The CD-ROM install requires that you have a CD-ROM and are
physically able to access each Active Display Station computer. For
details, see page 26.
The network install allows you to install or upgrade the Active
Display Client software from the server, without installing from a
CD-ROM on each client computer. To use the network install or
upgrade option, clients must have Internet Explorer 5.0 or a later
version of Internet Explorer installed.
For details about installing the station software from the network,
see page 27.
Setting up the station

25
How clients install the software over the network
When you start the Active Display Server using the DisplayServerOn
command, the server generates a web page called default.htm in the
RSView32 project directory. You can connect to the project running on
the server using Internet Explorer, by browsing to the URL:
http://<ServerComputer >/RSView32
where ServerComputer is the name of the computer on which the Active
Display Server is running.
The default.htm file connects Internet Explorer to the project running
on the server, and checks if the RSView32 Active Display Station
software is installed on the client computer.
If the software is installed, the browser connects to the server. If the
software is not installed, or if the software is out of date, the software
is installed or upgraded automatically from a default directory on the
RSView32 Active Display Server.
You can specify an alternate location for the Active Display Station
setup files. For details about using the DisplayServerOn command, see
page 67.
Installing the client software from CD-ROM
The steps below explain how to install the Active Display Station from
the CD-ROM to your computer.
To install the RSView32 Active Display Station on Windows
Server 2003, Windows XP, Windows 2000 or Windows Vista
1.
Close all open Windows programs.
2.
Place the RSView32 Active Display System CD-ROM into your
CD-ROM drive. The CD should start running automatically.
If the CD does not start automatically, run D:\SETUP.EXE, where
D is the drive containing the CD.


Getting Results with RSView32 Active Display System
3.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
4.
During installation, you will be prompted to activate the RSView32
Active Display Station.


If you want to install a dedicated client license, insert the
Master disk in the disk drive, and then click Activate.
If you want to install a floating client license, you must install it
on the server.
For more information about the different kinds of licenses and
activation keys, see “Activation keys” on page 13.
5.
When prompted, restart Windows.
Installing the client software from a network
1.
Start Internet Explorer.
2.
Browse to the address http://Servername/RSView32, where
Servername is the name of the server computer.
3.
Wait for the Active Display Client setup program to download.
When it is finished downloading, the Active Display Client setup
program will start automatically.
4.
To install the Active Display Client software, follow the
instructions on the screen.
To install the required software, the Internet Explorer security level for
your local intranet zone must be medium or lower. For information
about changing the security level of your local intranet zone, see
Internet Explorer Help.
Activation keys
If you are using ‘floating’ client licences, the RSView32 Active Display
Station uses any RSVRADS.CLI (for read-write licenses) or
RSVRADS.ROC (for view-only licenses) activation keys that are not in
Setting up the station

27
use on the server. You do not need to activate the RSView32 Active
Display Station after installation.
If you want to ensure that a particular client will have a license to
connect to an RSView32 Active Display Server (even if the server does
not have a license available), you must activate the RSView32 Active
Display Station by installing a dedicated client activation key
(RSVRADS.GCS) on the RSView32 Active Display Station. Keep in
mind, though, that no matter how many licenses you have, the
maximum number of simultaneous client connections on the server
is 20. For more information, see “Activation keys” on page 13 and
“‘Dedicated’ client licenses” on page 16.
FactoryTalk® Activation Grace Period
FactoryTalk® Activation provides customers with access to critical
software components for a grace period of 7 days regardless of
availability of valid activations. When a product is successfully
activated, all grace period records will be cleared and the product will
proceed with valid activations.
RSView32 Active Display Station


During the grace period, FactoryTalk® Activation will display a
Grace Period warning message box to the user and log a diagnostic
warning message to FactoryTalk® Diagnostics every four hours if
no valid activation key located on Station side detected.
If there is more than one RSView32 Active Display Station running
on the same computer, the grace period start time is counted from
the time when the first client launches. When the grace period
expires, RSView32 Active Display Client will not be launched.

Setting up the browser
The Active Display Browser helps you integrate fully interactive, realtime RSView32™ graphic displays into the Microsoft® Internet
Explorer web browser, version 5.0 or later. The Active Display Browser
allows you to link your RSView32 graphic displays to other web pages,
providing a common, browser-style method of navigation to multiple
information systems in a single web browser (for example, an intranet
application).
It is not necessary to use the Active Display Browser for remote dialup use. Use the Active Display Station instead, because the Active
Display Station has capabilities not available with the Active Display
Browser. For more information about the differences between the
Active Display Station and the Active Display Browser, see page 65.
IMPORTANT
The Active Display Browser is not intended for longterm system operation, because it depends on thirdparty software that is not guaranteed to be fully
compatible or reliable when used with the RSView32
Active Display System. The Active Display Browser also
has no “lockdown” capabilities, and features limited
window management.
This chapter describes how to install and configure the Active Display
Browser. For information about installing and configuring the Active
Display Station, see Chapter 2, Setting up the station.
Determining system requirements
The system requirements for the browser are the same as for the
station. For details, see page 23.


Installing the RSView32 Active Display Browser
To use the Active Display Browser, you must have Microsoft Internet
Explorer version 5.0 or later installed on your computer.
The Active Display Browser uses the same client setup program as the
Active Display Station. When you first connect to a server, using
Internet Explorer, the client setup program is downloaded and started
automatically. For more information, see “Installing the client software
from a network” on page 27.
Connecting to an RSView32 Active Display Server
You cannot access an Active Display Server located on the protected

Chapter
Using the Active Display
System
Integrating your RSView32 project with
the Active Display System
Parts of RSView32™ appear or react differently when viewed from a
client than at the server or when RSView32 is used as a standalone
product. To integrate your RSView32 project with the Active Display
System, configure your project with these differences in mind.
Activity bar support
The activity bar is supported in the station, but not in the browser.
The activity bar displays client-side information or error messages. You
can use the configuration wizard to specify whether or not to display
an activity bar along the bottom of each Active Display Station window.
The activity bar is exactly the same as the RSView32 activity bar, except
that you cannot specify what information the activity bar displays—all
the information categories are displayed.
Use the configuration wizard to enable or disable the activity bar. The
activity bar is enabled by default for the Active Display Station.
To scroll through entries in the activity bar, click an entry and use the
scrollbars to view the history of messages. To display more messages,
you can undock the activity bar and resize it.

45
Activity logging
Clients do not have a locally-stored activity log. Only commands sent
to the Active Display Server are logged in the server’s log file.
Alarms
Clients do not support objects not contained in graphic displays. Only
graphic displays with embedded objects are supported. You can only use
commands that are related to embedded alarm summaries (for
example, AcknowledgeAll).
Each alarm summary object displays the state of the alarms found on
the Active Display Server with which the Active Display Station is
associated.
Only the internal bell on the server sounds to announce an alarm.
All alarm-related commands operate on the alarms found on the
server. This provides global alarm management capabilities. When
alarms are acknowledged from a client, the user name recorded in the
alarm log file is the name of the user that is logged in at the server, not
the client.
File locations
Store all project-related files in their default locations at the server.
When you issue the DisplayServerOn command for the first time for a
project, an alias for the project’s directory is created by the Windows®
Internet Service Manager. If the project uses files that are not in their
default locations, clients will not be able to access them, unless you set
up an alias for them manually in the Internet Service Manager.

be used with stations and browsers just as they would be at runtime if
the graphic display were running with RSView32.
You can also configure the Active Display Station to download and run
a global key definition file when the connection is established with the
server, or when a Key command is issued. Global keys are active only
when the Active Display Station window has focus.
Global keys cannot be used with the Active Display Browser.
Security
Starting a client connection

If your RSView32 project uses Windows Security Options, when a
client first connects to an Active Display Server the user is validated
by the Windows domain controller, and the user is not prompted
again for a name and password to access the project.
To use Windows Security Options, the user accounts must be set up
for Windows User Lists in the RSView32 project.

If your project is not using Windows Security Options, when a
client first connects to a server the user is prompted for a login
name and password.
For the client to use the RSView32 internal user list, at least one
account must exist in the RSView32 project.
Before a client can log in, you must make either of the above
configurations.
Once logged in, all commands issued from a client are checked for
privileges (as they are at runtime by RSView32).
Using the Active Display System

47
Use the RSView32 Security Codes and User Accounts editors on the
Active Display Server to configure security access for users of the
system.
If your project uses Windows Security Options, users must have an
operating system user account on the Active Display Server. If your
project does not use Windows Security Options, users do not need an
operating system user account on the server.
Configuring clients as read-only
If you want to configure a client as ‘read-only’ (the client cannot write
to tags), you can do so in several ways:



for the station, configure the client window to be view-only. For
information about editing Active Display Station configurations,
see page 29.
Alternatively, secure all the RSView32 commands that result in tag
writes. For example, assign the Set, =, Ramp, Download, and
DownloadAll commands to a security code to which the client user
account does not have access. This works for both stations and
browsers.
To prevent only Active Display Browsers from writing tag
information, start the Active Display Server with the command,
DisplayServerOn /V.
Changing the logged-in user
To log a different user into the RSView32 Active Display System
without disconnecting the client, you can configure a display to issue
the login command. If no match is found for the name or password,
the current user remains logged in. If you configure a display to issue
the logout command, the login dialog box is displayed. If the new login
is successful, the previous user is logged out.
48

Getting Results with RSView32 Active Display System
Operating system access control
You cannot prevent users of Active Display Browsers from accessing
the Windows operating system or other Windows applications.
To prevent the operator of an Active Display Station from accessing
the Windows operating system or other Windows applications, disable
all the relevant keyboard shortcuts, and configure the Active Display
Station window to display maximized and without a title bar.
For Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and
Windows 2000, operating system access can be disabled using the
Win2K XP DeskLock software included with the RSView32 Active
Display System. For information about configuring the DeskLock tool,
click the Windows Start button, point to Programs, Rockwell Software,
RAD System, and then click Win2K XP DeskLock Help.
For Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and
Windows 2000, you must also configure Active Display Station
windows to disable access to the operating system, using the Active
Display Station Configuration Wizard. For details about editing station
configurations, see page 29.
Startup and shutdown macros
Display startup and shutdown commands or macros execute every
time a client or server opens or closes a graphic display. Avoid using
tags in your startup or shutdown macros, because tag operations like
starting and stopping derived tag files, event files, or setting and
resetting tags can have unexpected results.
Trends
Clients can run graphic displays with embedded Trend objects with
real-time or historical data sources. For historical trends, the client
Using the Active Display System

49
retrieves the data for the trend object from the data log that is running
on the Active Display Server to which the client is connected.
IMPORTANT
It is possible for one client to affect the behavior of a
Trend object running on another client, by writing to a
common Trend control tag. To avoid this problem, set
up your application so that each client uses unique Trend
control tags.
RSView32 VBA code
VBA code is processed at the Active Display Server, but can be started
from a client. VBA forms or message boxes display only at the Active
Display Server.
VBA code stops running while the forms are visible. For this reason,
avoid executing VBA code that launches forms from a client.
Runtime features not supported in the Active
Display System
The following features of RSView32 Runtime are not supported in the
Active Display System:
Activity logging cannot be performed
on a client, and activity logs cannot be printed from the client.
However, all commands sent to the Active Display Server, and any
errors that result, are logged in the server’s activity log.
Activity logging and printing.
Alarm logging and printing. Alarm logging cannot be performed on
a client, and alarm logs cannot be printed from the client.
Data logging. Data logging cannot be performed on a client.
However, you can view logged data stored on an Active Display Server
through historical trend objects. For more information, see “Trends”
on page 49.
50

Getting Results with RSView32 Active Display System
Electronic signatures. The functions of the electronic signature
button do not work on a client.
Event detection and derived tags. These features are not supported
for use with clients (they run on the Active Display Server). However,
you can start or stop these components by issuing the appropriate
commands remotely, embedded in an object key, push button, macro,
and so on.
Graphics display caching. The Display
/z command is ignored. The
client uses the setting “Check for newer versions of stored pages” in
the Internet Settings/Internet Options in Control Panel to determine
how client displays are cached. This is a disk cache.
Change the “Check for newer versions of stored pages” setting to
“Every visit to the page,” otherwise client windows might not reflect
the latest version of the displays on the Active Display Server.
Using the Active Display System

51
To improve performance over a dial-up connection, change the “Check
for newer versions of stored pages” setting to “Never,” to prevent
graphic displays from being downloaded over the modem every time a
display is opened.
Command processing. Commands in graphic displays or global key
files are ignored by the client or are sent to the Active Display Server
for processing. Commands processed by the server are global
commands—they apply to all clients connected to that project on that
server. All other commands are either processed locally by the client,
or are ignored because they are not applicable.

Configuring your RSView32 project for browser
navigation
Because web browsers use Universal Resource Locators (URLs) and a
‘previous page - next page’ method of navigation, your RSView32
project needs to be modified to work with the Active Display Browser.
Modifying the Display and Abort commands
The Display and Abort commands used in RSView32 to open and
close graphic displays are ignored by the Active Display Browser.
To navigate from one graphic display to another on the same server,
the Active Display Browser uses the NavigateGFX command. The
browser does not require an equivalent of the Abort command,
because only one graphic display can appear in a browser window at
one time, and each graphic display replaces the previous one.
Using the NavigateGFX command
The NavigateGFX command requires the name of a graphic display on
the same server. For example, the command NavigateGFX
ProcessSummary displays the current project’s graphic display
ProcessSummary.gfx. You do not need to specify the .gfx extension
with the NavigateGFX command.
For more information about the NavigateGFX command, see page 69.
Integrating the browser with other web sites
The NavigateURL command provides a means of browsing from
RSView32 to another URL or address, and back again. Use the
NavigateURL command to integrate RSView32 with other web sites
(for example, into your corporate intranet), providing users with a
simple, common user interface.
60

Getting Results with RSView32 Active Display System
Using the NavigateURL command
You can use the NavigateURL command to specify a new URL from
a graphic button or display key.
For example, if your company’s intranet is accessible via the URL
http://www.mycompany.com/intranet, to navigate to your company’s
intranet page, issue the command
NavigateURL http://www.mycompany.com/intranet
To navigate back to the graphic display ProcessSummary, use your
browser’s Back button.
Navigating to a project’s initial graphic display
You can navigate to a project’s initial graphic display only if the
DisplayServerOn command was started with the /G parameter.
To navigate to the RSView32 project’s initial graphic display, add the
following link to one of your intranet pages, or type the following
address in the browser’s Address box:
http://<ServerComputer>/RSView32
Using the Active Display System

61
You can also navigate to the project’s initial graphic display using the
NavigateGFX command:
NavigateGFX RSView32
Navigating to a project’s list of graphic displays
If you did not start the server using the /G parameter to the
DisplayServerOn command, the following address will show a list of
graphic displays in the project:
http://<ServerComputer>/RSView32
You can then select the graphic display you want to navigate to.
Navigating to a specific graphic display
You can navigate from a web page to a specific RSView32 graphic
display. For example, if the graphic display ProcessSummary is one you
use frequently, you can navigate to it directly. To do this, use a URL of
the form:
http://<ServerComputer>/RSView32/
default.htm?gfx=ProcessSummary
Similarly, you can navigate to any graphic display on the RSView32
Active Display Server by substituting the name of the graphic display
for ProcessSummary in the link shown above.
For more information about the NavigateURL command, see page 70.
Adding parameters to the Display command
You can use most of the command line parameters for the Display
command with the URL for a graphic display, or with the
NavigateGFX command. However, because all graphic displays
occupy the entire browser window, the command line parameters used
for screen size and positioning are ignored.
62

Getting Results with RSView32 Active Display System
For example, to specify the parameter file “AssemblyLineEast” with
the ProcessSummary display, type the URL
http://Servername/RSView32/default.htm?gfx=ProcessSummary
/pAssemblyLineEast
If you are using the NavigateGFX command, the command would read
NavigateGFX ProcessSummary /pAssemblyLineEast
Making your RSView32 project work with a
browser
You can make your RSView32 project work with a browser by adding
a NavigateGFX command everywhere you have a Display command.
By using both commands, you can make objects work both in
RSView32 Runtime, and in the Active Display Browser.
To do this, copy and paste the Display command and its parameters,
and replace the command Display with NavigateGFX.
For example, the command for a button might be
Display ProcessSummary /pAssemblyLineEast
You can make this button browser capable by modifying the button’s
command to read
Display ProcessSummary /pAssemblyLineEast;
NavigateGFX ProcessSummary /pAssemblyLineEast
Avoiding navigation among graphic displays
on different servers
While it is possible to navigate from a graphic display on one server to
a graphic display on a different server using the NavigateURL
command, this is not recommended, because the NavigateURL
command requires that you specify the name of the computer on which
the Active Display Server is running. If you move the RSView32
Using the Active Display System

63
project to a computer with a different network address, browser
navigation will no longer work.
Maintaining the connection to the server
The connection between the Active Display Browser and the server is
maintained for as long as the browser is displaying a graphic on the
server.
If the user navigates to an address that is not part of the RSView32
project (for example, the company intranet page), the connection
between the browser and the server is maintained for five minutes, to
enable the user to go back to the RSView32 graphic display without
having to log in again, or be re-authenticated by the server.
If the user views a page that is not part of the RSView32 project for
more than five minutes, the connection between the browser and the
server is dropped, and the user will have to log in, or be reauthenticated the next time he or she attempts to view an RSView32
graphic display on the server. If a dedicated license is not being used,
the client will once again have to acquire a floating client license from
the server.
If your RSView32 project is using Windows Security Options, users
will be re-authenticated after the five-minute timeout period, but they
will not be prompted for a user name and password.
Deploying ActiveX components automatically
RSView32 Active Display Clients can automatically install the correct
versions of ActiveX controls required for RSView32 graphic displays.
To deploy ActiveX controls automatically, you must create .cab files for
your ActiveX controls using the program CABARC.exe located in the
directory \ActiveXControlSetup in the same directory where you
installed RSView32.
64

Getting Results with RSView32 Active Display System
For information about creating .cab files, see the text file,
CreatingCabFiles.txt in the \ActiveXControlSetup directory. The text
file contains examples for creating CAB files, and information about
the naming conventions that must be used.
If you open a graphic file containing an embedded ActiveX object that
is not installed on the Active Display Client, the file will run, but a
rectangle containing the text “ActiveX Component Not Installed on
Client” will appear in place of the embedded ActiveX object.
Differences between the station and the browser
The Active Display Browser is identical to the Active Display Station,
except:




global keys are not supported in the browser. Display and object
keys are supported.
it is not possible to disable access to the Windows operating system
or other windows applications in the browser.
the Client Window Configuration wizard is not used to set up the
Active Display Browser. The browser relies on URLs for locating
graphic displays.
all displays opened in the Active Display Browser occupy the entire
browser window—Windows-style pop-up windows (for messages,
for example) are not supported.

tooltips are not supported in the browser.

the activity bar and status bar are not supported in the browser.

the Display and Abort commands are ignored by the browser. Use
the NavigateGFX command instead.
