After you install the software use the OPC Systems Service Control application to start the OPC Systems Service, OPC Systems Data Service, and OPC Systems Database Service if they are not already started.
These services will automatically start when you restart your computer unless you set the startup type to Manual for each of the services.
You can optionally Start Runtime here also or later in the example. All modifications are allowed during Runtime except loading a Tag configuration file. You can add, delete, and modify Tags, Data Logging Groups, Alarm Logging Groups, Alarm Notification Groups, Recipes, Reports, Security Groups, and Security Users during Runtime.
