Killer New Features in InTouch HMI 2017

Support for Frame Windows to Host ArchestrA Graphics
Frame windows can be used in WindowMaker in addition to class application windows. Frame windows host a single ArchestrA Graphic and provide the user the ability to dynamically resize windows at run time.

Support for Panning and Zooming at Run Time Using Mouse, Keyboard and Touch Gestures
This feature enables the user to pan and zoom at run time using mouse, keyboard and touch gestures. This feature is enabled by properties configured in a frame window.

Create Modern and Managed InTouch Applications Using Application Templates
A user can create a Modern or Managed InTouch application from an application template. Available application templates are available in the Application Template Browser. This feature also enables the user to create application windows from template windows as well as set application windows to become available as template windows for reuse.

Run InTouch as a Service
When WindowViewer is configured to run as a service, an application directory path is now entered in the Node Properties dialog box to automatically run the specified application as a service with WindowViewer. WindowViewer will run in a non-Graphical User Interface mode.

Existing Wonderware User

+ Does my Customer First support contract entitle me to receive this new version?
o All existing Wonderware licenses that are on an active Customer First Support contract can be upgraded upon request to the 2017 release at no charge. These are Perpetual licenses. Version 2017 also introduces the option of subscription licensing. An upgrade to the new Subscription licensing can be made available for a fee. You can start the process by requesting your upgrades here.

+ What should I know before I decide to upgrade?
Most Wonderware Version 2017 Activated licenses are not backward version compatible, i.e. 2017 licenses will not enable previous versions. Please consult InSource to plan your upgrade appropriately to ensure uptime.

+ What does installation look like?
Wonderware System Platform and InTouch version 2017 installation is straight-forward. Follow the link below to the InSource Knowledge Center to see information on prerequisites, and watch a walk thru video of installation & configuration. [Installing Wonderware System Platform 2017]

+ How do I activate my licenses?
Wonderware 2017 software products are license enforced using a new 'Activated' licensing. Licenses are ‘activated’ with an activation code and that code is associated/locked to the License Server at the customer site resulting in greater license flexibility and higher license compliance. This new Activated licensing makes use of our new License Manager which makes activating, managing, and upgrading licenses simple. This has multiple additional advantages such as: the archestra.lic license files are no longer needed, no more license dongles, no more RDS (T/TP/TF/TPF), Failover, or RDS Concurrent parts, and no more paper High Availability part.

+ Do you have a presentation I can use to communicate to my teams?
Yes. There is a large amount of collateral for your use. A summary presentation can be found at the link below. InSource would be delighted to collaborate with you to discuss the expanded capabilities with your teams.
