Working Modes 


CVI Fusion has two working modes upon opening.

  • Online = Connected to a compatible MSSQL database. Projects can be opened from and saved into the database and/or files. Users can load reports based on the traceability stored in the connected database.
  • Offline = Not connected to a compatible MSSQL database. Projects can be opened from and saved in Fusion project files only. Users can not view reports.


The connectivity of  CVI Fusion can be determined by looking at the database connectivity icon. See below.
