IGSS on Multiscreen system

Question

I have 3 screens and I would like my IGSS to always start and run on screen 2 and extend to screen 3 but every time I start my IGSS, it opens on screen 1 and extends to screen 2 and 3. How do I do this?


Answer

IGSS is set by default to always start on the primary screen of the machine the program is installed on.


You can change the default start screen to start IGSS on the same screen which IGSS was shut down on.


First you must open the Registry Editor form to enable IGSS to save the last screen postion of IGSS when IGSS was stopped.


Open the Registry Editor form from the Start menu and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\schneider-electric\ IGSS32\V11.00.00\DefRun32_HKLM\SaveOnExit key. Change the value of the SaveOnExit key to 1


Next you must start IGSS and start the Supervise module. Place the Supervise diagram on screen 2 and Exit supervise.


Finally you can prevent IGSS from save the last screen postion of IGSS when IGSS was stopped in case someone changes the start screen placement.


Open the Registry Editor form from the Start menu and go to  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\schneider-electric\ IGSS32\V11.00.00\DefRun32_HKLM\SaveOnExit key. Change the value of the SaveOnExit key to 0


Now your IGSS will always open on screen 2.
