Procedure

  1. Using your web browser, type the website address for the Metasys server (ADS/ADX/ODS) or supervisory engine (NxE) that you want to access (for example, http://<server name or IP address>/metasys). The Windows Launcher Download screen appears (Figure 1).
    Note: Single Site Connection is not available on an Apple OS.
    Note: The Single Site Connection install option is available to network engines ADS/ADX at Release 9.0 or earlier. For engines at Release 9.0.7, the option is available but not functional; for engines ADS/ADX at Release 10.0, only the Full Launcher Installer option is available.
