Why can't you have alarms and tag values displayed or exported on
a Dat@View client (Dat@Monitor V6.0) with Windows NT 4.0?
In the case of a Dat@Monitor client with Windows NT 4.0 there
might be errors in Dat@View with the Display and
Export of alarms and tag values. The reason lies in the old
versions of the Windows files msado15.dll and

file msado15.dll with version V2.5 SP3 or higher.
Furthermore, Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.5 SP3 must

Requirement for the export of data from Dat@View is the
file shell32.dll (4.00). You can proceed as follows to
install the latest version of shell32.dll:
- Option 1 (with Internet connection):
To install the latest version of shell32.dll you must
install Support for Active Desktop when setting up the Internet
Explorer 6.0 SP1. However, since you cannot select this in the
Setup mask, you should call the Setup for the Internet Explorer 6.0
SP1 with the following command from the command line:
ie6setup.exe /C:"ie6wzd /e:IE4Shell_NTx86 /I:Y"
- Option 2 (without Internet connection):
deinstall the Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 on the Dat@Monitor client,
then install Internet Explorer 4.01 SP1 with Active Desktop and
finally reinstall the Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1.
- Option 3 (without Internet connection):
If you have
a version of the Internet Explorer installed on your computer,
which cannot be deinstalled and which is more recent than version
4.01 SP1, then you must reinstall Windows NT 4.0. Then you must
again install SP6 (or SP6a), then Internet Explorer 4.01 SP1 with
Active Desktop and finally Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1.
- Option 4 (without Internet connection):
have the option of installing the new shell32.dll on a
computer without there having to be an Internet connection and
without having to deinstall the Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1:
First unpack ie4slhnt.cab from the Internet Explorer 4.01
SP1 CD into a temporary folder (e.g. C:\Temp). Then install the
files "ie4shell.inf" and ie4unit.inf by
right-clicking the files and selecting the menu item "Install" from
the pop-up menu.
Ignore the error message: "Copy error: an error has occurred while
copying wallpaper.htm..." with the "Skip" button. Once you have
installed both files you restart the computer. Then you install the
Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 again and restart the computer once
