Which OS supports the zenon webclient?

The zenon webclient, like the normal zenon runtime, requires a Microsoft Windows based operating system and requires some components of the Visual C++ runtime library (installed with the webclient)

So it will not run on Linux, MAC OS X or other non Microsoft Windows operating systems.

The Webclient is also not available for PDAs or smartphones with Windows Mobile or a Windows CE terminal.

Hi markclemens,

Have you already a plan to develop the zenon webclient for Linux ?

Our manage doesn't like Windows at all. But he want to use the zenon webclient to supervise our system. He told me if you have not any intention to develop a webclient for Linux, I should try to find another product to rebuild our SCADA supervision... :(

The zenon WebClient is based on an ActiveX control. The ActiveX control is a Microsoft technology that is used to add functionality to Windows programs. ActiveX is only available on Windows operating systems, and as a result webpages that require it will not work on Linux or Mac.

A possible workaround for your manager would be to install a Virtual Machine with Windows installed. When he/she want to see whats going on in zenon he/she simply would start the VM and thus also the zenon WebClient on demand.

Regards,
Herbert
