Information about changing the language setting in Windows


If the language setting of the system is different from the language setting of the program, problems can occur with the display of ibaPDA server messages, performance counters and the display of Technostrings via OPC DA.

The format setting and the display language refer to the general language settings of the Windows interface and the ibaPDA Client. Taking over the settings in the system account is important for the ibaPDA Server, as described in point 3 (Taking over the settings for the user “System”).

 

1. Format settings

Control Panel > Region and Language> Formats  
Please select the appropriate format.

 

 

2. Display language

Control Panel > Region and Language> Keyboards and Languages
Please choose a display language.

 

3. Taking over the settings for the user “System”

Usually, the Windows user “System” is used by ibaPDA Server. If you change the language settings for Windows, you also have to change the settings for the user “System”. Otherwise the language setting for the user “System” is retained unchanged. In that case, e.g. at the start of the acquisition server-generated validation messages are displayed (ostensibly) in the wrong language by ibaPDA. The notation of the performance indicator (usable with the virtual function PerformanceCounter) is also related to the language setting of the user “System”. The interpretation of Technostrings via OPC DA differs as well.

Control Panel > Region and Language> Administrative > Copy settings => Apply
Please select "Welcome screen and system accounts".
