What service needs to be running for ENM 8.3 to connect to PME 8.x

Issue
ENM 8.3 is unable to detect PME 8.x and therefore unable to bring in alarm tags

Product
Event Notification Module (ENM) 8.3
Power Monitoring Expert (PME) 8.x

Environment
Windows Server 2012

Cause
ENM is unable to connect to the service used to supply alarm data to ENM.

Resolution
Start the ApplicationModules AlarmServiceHost Service. This Service requires ApplicationModules CoreServiceHost be running.

The 'ION OPC Data Access' service does not need to be started as Alarm Sentry is no longer required to bring in PME Alarms to ENM.  'Alarm Configuration' is currently used to configure alarms for ENM.

1) Log onto the server with a user that can start and stop services.
2) Go to Administrative Tools -> Services or run services.msc
3) Locate the services mentioned above and start services as required.
