I have a problem blocking my developpement. I am coding a vba function in ProcessBook meant to write a value with an annotation in a digital point. As i execute the UpdateValues method, i get the following error:


"Pibufss service is not running. Unable to buffer. Pi buffer subsystem should be running but isn't. Start attempt failed."


So i realized this service wasn't installed on my pc, downloaded it and installed it. Now it's there and on "automatic" but it won't start on boot. Used the PI ICU utility to manually start it, don't do anything...


Am i even supposed to use that for an UpdateValues call ?
