Upgrade from the discontinued RSView32 to FactoryTalk View SE

As much as we'd like good things to last forever, changes inevitably happen - especially when technology is involved.  

For some of you, RSView 32 has been a cornerstone of your operational success for over 2 decades.  We say THANK YOU for your loyalty and dedication! But, it’s time for you to make the leap!  Why, you ask? Because now, more than ever, we’re all being asked to do more with less; we have to work smarter.  

One way we can do this is by taking advantage of advancements in technology that not only make us more efficient, but also help us make better (and faster) decisions.  In the world of HMI, that means exploiting technologies like cloud computing, virtualization, mobility, thin clients, and more.  Because of this, it's time for RSView 32 users to embrace FactoryTalk View as your next HMI solution.  We know it’s hard to let go of something that has served you so well; but, don’t worry - we’re here to help guide you on your next HMI adventure.  

RSView32 Migration
FactoryTalk® View Site Edition (SE) supports importing and reusing RSView®32 projects. The conversion process successfully retains most of the core RSView32 project, including graphic displays, animated objects, text, tags, alarms, expressions, and macros.

FactoryTalk View SE supports both stand-alone and distributed versions. The stand-alone version, called FactoryTalk® View SE Station, has characteristics in common with RSView32 runtime software. The FactoryTalk View SE distributed components include FactoryTalk View Studio, FactoryTalk View SE Server, and FactoryTalk View SE Client. The distributed version has many of the same capabilities as RSView32 Active Display System. Keep these distinctions in mind as you convert your projects.

Because RSView32 and FactoryTalk View Site Edition are designed using different underlying architectures, there are a number of differences in the way in which project elements work within the two products.
