Resolution
When opneing a diagram in Vista, the diagram should open from a pre-defined registry path where the device diagrams are associated to a Device type in the registry.  There may be times where a particular device diagram is not under the expected root path and so isolating the issue involved locating where it's opening from.  The following tool helps identify and filter the location of where the an incorrect diagram may be opening from
  1. First apply this index?page=content&id=FA212118.
  2. If an incorrect diagram is still being opened, then there is specific tool used for troubleshooting that can tell you exactly what registry entries any program is trying to access.
  3. Download Procmon64.exe (https://live.sysinternals.com/)

  5. Launch Procmon and stop capture (magnifying glass)

Note: The software name and version number after the \Power Monitoring Expert\ will vary depending on the version of software. 
 
  1. Start the Capture
  1. Open Vista and try to open the diagram page with open diagram from meter template of the device diagram in question
  1. Go back to Procmon and stop the capture
Process Name:  Corresponds to the application opening up the diagram
