    Yesterday I started on the list of 7 items on the General Configuration Sequence. http://doc.rapidscada.net/content/en/software-configuration/general-configuration.html I got through the first 2 steps successfully. On step 3 I tried to open Communicator. Instead of seeing Communicator with the arrow button, I got the Scheme Editor.

    So, today I clicked on Communicator in my Windows 8.1 Apps list and got a message that it was already running. There is no evidence of that. So far, I am stymied.

    I am trying to get Rapid Scada to do ONE job; record or log energy used as measured by a Sentron PAC3200 via ethernet Modbus TCP/IP.

    The Server and Communicator are started in minimized mode, locate from the system tray

    Could you provide screenshots describe the things you did?

    manjey73 mentioned the system tray. I don’t know if he/she meant the taskbar at the bottom of my Windows screen. If I have the Administrator program open, it shows up in the taskbar. Communicator doesn’t show up anywhere except to tell me that it is already running and the new instance will be deleted.
    I looked at task manager yesterday and Communicator is running. But I don’t know how to get it to do what it is supposed to do, as I can’t open it.
    To provide the screenshots I would need to uninstall Rapid Scada and re-install.
    Maybe I should just go to step 4.

    That area is called a Taskbar by Windows 8.1 when I right click on it. You call it a tray. However, it only shows one icon; the Administrator icon.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled and got thru steps 1 & 2, but the same result. I can’t do step 3. I clicked on Communicator in the Apps window and nothing appeared. If I go to Task Manager, there are 3 SCADA processes running. However, I did not see the import arrow as shown in step 3.

    I have a ship but cannot link it here.
