How to Install and Enable the iFIX Classic Historian Applications for iFIX Version 5.5 OR for iFIX 5.8

หากใครเจอปัญหาการติดตั้งโปรแกรม Proficy iFIX แล้วไม่สามารถ Config Historical Data ได้
ให้ลองมาตรวจเช็คดูก่อนว่าได้ใช้ Version ใหม่ตั้งแต่ 5.5 ขึ้นไปหรือเปล่า เพราะใน Version ใหม่ ๆ จะไม่มีระบบ Historical Data
ที่ใช้ HTC.exe, HTA.exe เหมือนเก่าแล้ว เนื่องจากทำเพื่อรองรับการทำงานของ OS ที่เป็น 64 Bit แต่หากยังต้องการใช้ Historical Data แบบเก่า ก็สามารถติดตั้งเพิ่มเติมได้ โดยดูจาก How To ด้านล่างได้เลยครับ (สามารถค้นหาเองได้จากเว็บของ GE ได้เลย)
