Properties of software of measuring file visable in excel file

Laura 4 weeks ago in IQANrun • updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 weeks ago 4


We are making a measuring report with help of excel of our machines by using a measuring file. Almos every time when Iqan has an update from design 2 to 3 to 4 to 5 the top of the excelfile will change. By doing that we have problems with our report what is regenerating automatically. But also the properties are not constant.

We would like to have the project and the version in the properties of the excel file.

We expect in software version the version mentioned in the properties of the project. Not the version of iqan. By the way: it does not work to set 4.07 version in this cell

Is it possible to add the project version in the cell of excel. I thought that run 2 had this.

Kind regard

I'm getting the message pictured above when trying to build a customized version IQANrun 2 using IQANcustomize 2.

Is there a way to resolve this other than reducing the size of the archive?




You are right, there is a limitation of 2 GB of the size of the created setup file. The way to resolve this is to limit the size of the archive.


Iqan Run Clone pull settings

GPARRY 2 years ago in IQANrun • updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 years ago 3

Iqan Run clones no longer pull settings I think a clone should be exactly that an identical copy of the software your cloning.

I would like a clone to pull settings regardless of security level

we set OEM settings at the factory and our dealers have less privileges so when they clone a display and send it to a new one none of the settings go with it

we really need a clone to be exactly the same!

This may be a long shot:

Unable to get machine logs from MC43

Kevin Arscott 1 month ago in IQANrun • updated 1 week ago 2

We have a multi master system with 1 x MD4, 3 x MC43 fitted to two identical machines. All 4 modules have multiple logs inside, we are able to get logs from all modules, however two logs on one of the MC43's only will refuse to download when using IQAN Run. Running Iqan Design 5.03. The logs are visible, and it displays how many logs are inside, however when double clicking to show the logs we get a blank white screen while its trying to populate the logs on screen then it times out after around 20 seconds with a message box saying no response from the controller. The controller remains active, no error flashes.

The controllers are not overloaded, and we are talking only a couple hundred logs inside each log, not thousands and thousands. Is there any known reasons why this could be happening? Its the same for both machines we have, so something common between the two...

Password box wont take enough characters

Kevin Arscott 1 month ago in IQANrun • updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 1 month ago 1

We are using an application created in IQANDesign and when simulating the application I'm unable to login using credentials i configured within design on IQANRun Looking closer our password we set in design is 27 characters in length but IQANRun will only allow 25? IQAN Design notes state a password can be up to 40 in length, is this a bug or conflict between different versions?

Does this affect the tablet access as our customers use this length password to login, will IQANRun for tablets also limit the password length to 25 characters?


Adjust initial brightness using IQANRun

J.C. Crow 1 month ago in IQANrun • updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 1 month ago 2

I would like to have a higher default value for brightness. We could change when loading the program using IQAN run, but this is not an adjustable item. I could use the backlight override parameter, but then I would have to create another adjust group to change it rather than using the standard menu system. Is there a way to adjust through IQANRun or change the default value?


Same license for IQANrun2 and IQANrun 5 ?

C. Drouaud 3 months ago in IQANrun • updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 3 months ago 5


Some of our technician customers will have to install IQANrun 5 in addtion to IQANrun 2 used until now. 

It is not clear for me on what will happen about the license.

Can they use the same license number as the one they have for IQANrun 2 ? Will they have to update the license for free ? 

Or is it needed to buy another license (I hope not !) ? 

Thanks in advance, 


Run script with IQANrun without IQANscript ?

C. Drouaud 3 months ago in IQANrun • updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 3 months ago 2


Is it necessary to have IQANscript installed on the computer to run a script from IQANrun ? The script was made with IQANscript of course and send by mail.

Thanks in advance,


In my understanding, you would only need IQANScript if you want to make a script.

To run it, you only need to have IQANRun.


Keep settings when converting from 2.63 to 5.04 version

C. Drouaud 3 months ago in IQANrun • updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 3 months ago 4


I have machine running in 2.63 version. I want to update them with a program (very similar to the one in 2.63 - same parameters) in 5.04. Big update !

How can I memorize all the settings from the machine in 2.63 to get them back in the 5.04 version of the program ?

The only solution I found was to check in the 2.63 version every settings to see if they are different from the default value and if so, change them manually after the upgrade in 5.04. It should work but it is not easy and takes a long time (50+ parameters). 

Do you have an idea of how I could do this ? I try to Get settings in 2.63 IQANrun but they are not read in IQANrun 5.04...

Thanks in advance for your help !
