Why are the menus grayed out in the WinCC User Archive Editor and why is editing not possible?
In a server-client configuration it might happen that you cannot edit in the WinCC User Archive Editor. In this case the menus are displayed in gray.
Since you can configure also from a client in a server-client configuration, WinCC has a safety mechanism that prevents multiple persons from making changes in the WinCC User Archives at the same time. For this, a "UAEditor.loc" file is created in the project directory when the User Archive Editor opens and deleted when editing has finished.
Under certain circumstances it might happen that this file is not deleted in the project directory after editing has finished. This then prevents further processing even though nobody else is making changes. In this case you navigate in Windows Explorer to the project folder and delete the "UAEditor.Loc" file manually.
This behavior can also occur in other editors. Also refer to Entry ID 492977.
