Installing Simatic Softwares in Windows 7 via Windows XP Mode (Part 3) – Simatic Installation

Simatic Preparation

Windows XP Mode is ready. Now, continue to next step.

1. Open Windows XP Mode.

2. If you install from a folder you need to move to local folder in drive belong to Windows XP Mode NOT Windows 7.

3. Install Simatic softwares as usual. In this case I use Simatic Step 7 Version 5.2, Simatic Net V 6.0 SP3, and WinCC 6.0 SP1.

4. Set Station name in Simatic to this Windows XP Mode (VirtualXP-xxxxx). More simple than change windows name. It could make an error.

Virtual Xp Name

Edit Station Name

5. Edit Computer name in WinCC Project to your Virtual XP name .

Edit Computer Name in WinCC Project

Thats All

Now you can run Your Simatic Software directly from Windows 7 below Windows XP Mode.  All shortcuts will appear here.

I hope this help you.
