I need to connect one of my PC to two touch screen monitors (Make: PALAS Model: 215PCUW, each having a USB interface for mouse cursor). I am told that Multi seat capability of Windows 2011 Server can be used for the purpose. Please confirm whether OPC Scout is compatible for this OS.

Alternatively, please let me know if you have any better (cost effective) solution than the one mentioned above.

what is "Multi seat capability of Windows 2011 Server" ?
do you mean Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 ?
if yes then , that windows is designed like Windows server 2008 R2 so you will need "SIMATIC NET PC Software V8.1.1" DVD.

The "SIMATIC NET PC Software V8.1.1" DVD has been released for operation:

·         with Windows 7 (Professional, Enterprise, Ultimate), 32-bit and 64-bit

·         with Windows Server 2008 R2



but am I sure it will work ?
the answer is NO, because "Windows MultiPoint Server 2011" designed for academic Lap's not Industrial and Microsoft didn't check Siemens programs at there "
Community Verified Application Compatibility Center ".

Finally it is a new idea, and I hope to hear a feedback from you if it worked or not.
