Error is on Intouch
And we are expected to guess what that error is?

If you have not installed the toolkit then it will definitely not work.

Why can you not go and look for yourself?

Many years ago I worked also with Wonderware for Machine-Visualisation.
I remember that they have a very good helpdesk - so I would suggest you asked all this questions you have to them.
I'm very sure that they could help you.
I'm also sure, that they can tell you if you need this Toolkit and how much it (perhaps) cost ...

How can you be trying to use this toolkit if you have not installed it on your system, and you do not even know where to download it from?
