The faster status updates introduced in Version
6.0 cause some older/slower PC's to become unresponsive,
especially when viewing status with multiple Projects open.
Version 6.0b automatically fixes this problem for most PC's.
However, if your PC becomes unresponsive
during status update, try removing the semicolon from one or
both of these two new status update interval settings
under the [SETUP] section of your DS600.INI file:
The default values are 20 Hz (50ms poll)
for Data View and 40 Hz (25ms poll) for Ladder/Stage/Trend
Views. You can tweak these settings to make them slower (for
old/slow PCs), or even faster (e.g. fast Trend). (5119)
