    Woodward AE ActiveX is a component that displays alarms and events from a Woodward SOS server with AE capability (version 3.0 or newer).

    It can be applied in any ActiveX container, such as Excel, iFix or LabView.

    Features include:

    • Sorting and searching of alarms and events
    • Alarm display colors based on severity
    • Built-in watchdog for monitoring communications integrity

    What's new:

    • v1.1: Added design-time options to suppress acknowledge- and reset-events
    • v1.1: Fixed crash in iFix container upon closing screen with component

    Some containers store cached information about ActiveX component interfaces in *.exd files in (a sub-folder of)  the user temp folder:

    • WinXP: 'C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Temp\'
    • Win7:   'C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Temp\'

    For the Woodward AE component the cache files are named 'WoodwardAELib.exd'.
    Microsoft Excel 2013 stores the cache in sub-folder 'Excel8.0'.
    It may be neccesary to manually delete these files when a component is upgraded.
