Wonderware PacWest Tech Note 82 “Resolving slow WindowMaker load times for Wonderware InTouch managed applications“, written by Hawey Wells, is available on the Wonderware PacWest website.
Default Wonderware InTouch application settings can result in long waits opening ArchestrA IDE managed applications containing a large number of windows with embedded ArchestrA Graphics.Each window is programmatically opened to complete the initial load of all ArchestrA graphics in the development environment. Adding a setting to the application’s INTOUCH.INI file can vastly improve the initial load times in Wonderware InTouch WindowMaker for instances when this delay adversely affects the speed of development. This document lists the steps necessary to locate and add the LoadAllActiveXOnStartup flag set to zero in the managed application’s INTOUCH.INI file.
