I got this batch file from the AB tech support a long time ago. Basically copies the logs to a USB when you plug it into the PanelView.
6.0 firmware and greater:
@echo off
REM *** THIS FILE MUST BE NAMED autorun.bat FOR THIS TO WORK ***
REM get to datalog directory and copy these files to external CF card
REM YOUR_APP_NAME and YOUR_DLOG_MODEL_NAME must be modified to your settings
REM If using a USB Thumb driver replace "storage card2" with "USB Storage"
copy "\storage card\rockwell software\RSViewME\logs\YOUR_APP_NAME\DlgLog\DataLo g\*.*" "\USB Storage\"
REM If using a USB Thumb driver replace "storage card2" with "USB Storage"
REM get to alarms directory and copy these files to external CF card
REM If using a USB Thumb driver replace "storage card2" with "USB Storage"
copy "\storage card\rockwell software\RSViewME\logs\YOUR_APP_NAME\M_Alarms\*.*" "\USB Storage\"
copy "\Temp\~MER.00\M_Alarms\MachineAlarms.mal" "\USB Storage\"
REM If using a USB Thumb driver replace "storage card2" with "USB Storage"
echo The copy process is complete

Pre 6.0 firmware:
@echo off
copy "\storage card\rockwell software\RSViewME\logs\YOUR_APP_NAME\DlgLog\DataLo g\*.*" "\USB Storage\"
copy "\storage card\rockwell software\RSViewME\logs\YOUR_APP_NAME\M_Alarms\*.*" "\USB Storage\"
copy "\Temp\~MER.00\M_Alarms\MachineAlarms.mal" "\USB Storage\"
pause The copy process is complete

Something was wrong with the formatting so I uploaded the two text files I got from AB.

Arlen siad : "Data log to network driveIn FTView Studio, instead of logging to the PVP you can type in a network path. Ex. \\ServerName\folder. You will need to edit the MER file in FTView Studio to change that.
It's easy if the folder has no security. If it does, then you will need to use your Control Panel trick to add a Username\Password into the PVP. Under networks? maybe. it's in there somewhere. Just remember if the data log fails to write to the network file, then it stops working."


For option 1 How does one set up the Panelview as part of the network?

I have a similar problem with a version 7 PV+. My problem is I cant seem to see the HMI on the network. Both the PV+ and the PC have fixed IP.

Any guidance you can give would be a big help.

You can't add the PanelView Plus to the Windows network.
It runs Windows Embedded Compact, which does not join the network; you will not see it in Windows Explorer.

First make sure you can ping the PV+ IP address.
Then test your shared PC folder from a different PC.
