h1. Upgrading from ClearSCADA 2017 R1 and R2 Prior to June 2018

* There are changes to the ViewX startup configuration XML. This is because alarm banner settings can apply individually, so you can now have the alarm banner on any or all monitors. No change is needed if you are not using a customized ViewX startup configuration XML. A summary of the changes is here:
{quote}
* WindowContainers - The AlarmBannerWindow and AlarmBannerMode settings have been removed.
* PrimaryWindowContainer and SecondaryWindowContainer
* AlarmBannerDisplayState (new setting) - can be one of 'DockedTop', 'DockedBottom' or 'Fill'. Omit this to remove the alarm banner from this container.
* AlarmBannerPersistSettings (new setting) - a boolean. This can only be specified as true for one window container. This causes the container where the setting is "true" to be the master for saving column size and order settings.

Summarising the changes:

* The WebX installer has been separated from the main installer in ClearSCADA 2017 R2, and is no longer triggered as a “follow-on” installation after ClearSCADA. As a result, the new IIS WebX has been promoted to a stand-alone option from the ClearSCADA 2017 R2 installation main menu screen.
