A windows soft IOC is built as part of the utility applications when you build and recent version of EPICS with windows compilers. If you download software like NSSM, you can start the soft IOC when the computer boots. You can then write simple databases of most just ai records to hold values.

Not sure what mods you might need to make if you want values persistence across reboots.

Dear all,

We need to pass some values, calculated from photographs, to the EPICS network from a windows machine.
Is it easy to install an IOC server in a windows machine?
If not, our idea is to create the PVs in an already running IOC server (on linux), and use caput tool (from the EPICS Extensions http://aps.anl.gov/epics/distributions/win32/index.php) to update the values.
Is it possible to create an  PV that is not associated with any hardware in a IOC server? Is it enough to add a record in the ioc.db file?

Thanks in advance for your help.
