Digivis consuming too much memory
We have a Freelance system V7.1, W2K SP4. The PC in wich CBF was installed broke. We installed a new PC with W2K SP4, CBF, Digivis and Trend server. We instaled the key, open the project, made plausibility and send whole station to the 4 digivis stations. Everything was OK.
Now, these stations are old PCs with only 128MB RAM, W2K SP4. They get data from 4 redundand process stations. Since we did this, Digivis is consuming too much memory in those 4 stations. It seems as it does not free memory. Used memory grows and grows until the change of one graphic display to another is very slow (sometimes 5 minutes or more). We restart Digivis and memory frees, but grows again and in 3 days we have to restart again. This never happened before changing the CBF station.
Why is so? Do I just have to change the old PCs to new ones with more RAM?

after check manula , found below information:
Version 7.1 of the AC 800F / Freelance 2000 software has been
tested and released only under the
Microsoft Windows 2000
operating system. For detailed information on required service
packs for the operating system please refer to the release notes,
which are available on the setup CD.
I guess this issue casued by windows system not compatible .
If you just replaced an old PC with a new one and everything else is like before it should not happen.
Did you do anything different after replacing the PC, like adding another piece of application, doing some changes?
Did you have a backup of your latest project file or did you use an older backup?
I propose you open a case with the ABB support to investigate the issue.
Thank you very much for your answers.
It is solved now.
Jianhua, you were right. It was a Windows 2000 issue. The PC with Frrelance 7.1 CBF and trend server has to be W2K SP3. The PCs with Digivis can be SP3 or SP4.
I guess the original PC with CBF and trend server that broke and I changed was SP3. As I installed SP4 on the new one, the problem arised. Installing SP3, the problem was solved.
