I should mention that the VM and my laptop are not in the same domain. This is a test environment for proof of concept only (hence the vCampus subscription)
After I've let PI ACE lay out the ground work for the VB code, I can't even connect to the tags with edit either. It's like once I leave the initial new setup screen it loses connectivity and doesn't return
I'm at a loss here and I'm new enough to this that I'm having troubles figuring out the connections I think
This is a TechSupport question I believe, so I strong recommend to go to OSIsoft TechSupport team to deal with this issue. However, could you please try to set up your PI security to the lowest one and check if you could do the debug or test. If so, this should be the security problem.
