  1. Utility to completely uninstall all OSIsoft PI products from a machine

    It would be helping to have a utility do a complete uninstall of all the PI products from a machine including registry keys and hidden files.

  2. Remove installation kits' dependency on write permission to root C:\.

    Some organizations do not provide admin accounts with write permission to the root C:\ directory. The install kits of most PI products copy the setup.ini to C:\pisetup.ini, and then write the logs to C:\ before moving them to %pipc%\dat, both of which require write permission to C:\. The only workaround for now is to find someone with that permission to run the kit (typically an IT member).

  3. Running PI System within Docker

    Run the PI Server within Docker (https://www.docker.com/) to get better economies of scale.

If the OPCclient was in the OPC DA server 2017 I would not had needed to go down load OPC Tools kit.

  5. Resizing the Installation Complete and Installation Error Window

    For users who are performing installations through the use of PI System installation kits they would like the ability to resize the Installation Complete (Installation Error) Window so that they can get all of the details on all of the modules of the installation kit within one image/view without the need to horizontally scroll, losing the view of the module name while looking at the status and comments. Furthermore for installation kits with many products currently not able to view all of the products at once, must vertically scroll, seeing only partial list. Being able to resize this windows would…
