When trying to use the Wonderware Application Server IDE (Archestra IDE), right clicking on objects should show a menu allowing you to create new instances, deploy, etc..  Sometimes this menu will be displayed to the left of the mouse instead of to the right, causing the menu to be shown off screen as in the following example.  This is a known issue with Microsoft Windows, and will occur on some installations.


To fix this:

  1. In Windows, go to the Run menu (WinKey + R), and enter the following text to open Tablet PC Settings:
  2. You will see the Tablet PC Settings window, as shown below.  Select the tab called "Other".
  3. From the Other tab, change Handedness to Left-Handed, as shown below.
  4. Go back to the Application Server IDE and right click on an object.  The menus should now display correctly, to the right of the mouse.
