I installed PI SMT 2015 and PI Tag configurator option is coming as disabled. How to enable PI Tag Configurator in PI SMT and PI Tag Configurator Add-in in Excel 2013.
The PI Tag Configurator add-in for Microsoft Excel that was included with previous PI SMT versions is now replaced by PI Builder add-in for Microsoft Excel.
Please see the PI Builder 2015 R2 documentation at PI Live Library.
Thanks for your reply. I have PI AF Client installed on my machine but I am unable to find PI Builder. Also I don't see PI Builder plugin in Microsoft Excel's plugin list (Active, inactive and disabled). Could you guide me on installing PI Builder.
Please see if you
To be honest, I am a little uncertain if PI Builder becomes installed by PI SMT or by PI AF Client setup kit. Hence, please try installing the latest PI AF Client, if the files are not existent on your machine.
In my %pihome%\AF\ folder those dll are not present. I have PI AF Client already installed on my machine and in PI Builder documentation it's mentioned that PI AF Client will install PI Builder.
Is it possible Microsoft Excel wasn't installed at the time you installed PI AF Client?
Please try a Change -> Modify of the PI AF Client installation through Programs and Features and make sure PI Builder is included.
I had similar problem, as first I installed PI AF Client and after that Office 2016.
So I modify PI AF Client installation and PI Builder appeard in Excel.
I know you found it later on in this post, but to be complete the information about how to install PI Builder is available in the documentation:
PI Builder Setup Process
install PI Builder from the PI AF Client setup kit downloaded from OSIsoft. Close Microsoft Excel before installing PI Builder or other components in the PI AF Client setup kit.
Enable Tag Configurator add-in in Excel 2010 & 2013
I miss PI SMT Tag Configurator and am forced to used it on a separate PC.
Tried installing it with PI 2015 client tools by copying the XLA file, but it is throwing error that it can't find mscoree.dll.
Issue with PI Builder: can't search and pile up multiple tags while searching for PI Points because it asks to either Overwrite or exit the operation.
Can anyone suggest a workaround?
The easiest solution is to install an older version of PI SMT in a new virtual machine with Office. Is this solution feasible to you?
Yes, unfortunately I am doing the same.
You may try to copy the add-in from a computer where it's already installed. "Works on my computer" I have SMT 2015 but still have the old Tag configuration add-in (copied from a different computer).
