CM2000
CompactNSX A/E
DM6200
DM6300
EM5600
Micrologic A/E/H/P
Momentum PLC A8 WAGES/D10 WAGES
PM600

Resolution
*Warning: Irreparable database damage can occur. This procedure should only be performed by users familiar with SQL Server Management Studio.
Databases should be backed up prior to performing any procedure.*


To add these device types into the system, open SQL Server Management Studio and execute the SQL script file named 'PME-DeviceDrivers.sql' within a SQL Query window.
This file is found in the <INSTALL DIR>\system\etc\Database\network directory. Running this script will add the missing device types.

Note:  It is only the device type definitions in the DeviceType table in ION_Network that are missing. All other supporting files (Vista diagrams/driver files) will be there as expected.
