Installing the Historian Client Access API

About this task

The Historian Client Access API is a .NET assembly that interacts with Historian from any .NET applications. It is installed automatically when the Historian Client Tools are installed.
For Microsoft .NET-based application development, use the Historian Client Access API with C#, VB .NET, or any .NET compliant application. By default, the Install Wizard places both the API and Client Access .dlls in GAC (Global Assembly Cache). If you want to reference it to any client application, you can refer the following file path: INSTALLPATH\Assembly\Historian.ClientAccess.API.dll.
Important: It is recommended that you add Historian Client Access API references from the INSTALLPATH directory since global assembly cache is part of the run-time environment.
