I have a problem with cp5711 communication.
What drivers are you using? Try to download the latest drivers from http://support.automation.siemens.com/W ... n/39722731
I use Simatic Manager V5.4 SP5 under Windows XP mode (under Win7).
You are aware that this is a VERY
bad idea, right?
Nobody (esp. Siemens) does not provide any support at all for running under whatever VM?
Communication works well (I am able to upload program) until I start monitoring in VAT. It starts well, but after prob. 20seconds communication completely fall down.
When you debug the program, or when you press monitor in order to monitor variables, do you still get communication breakdown after 20 sec?
CP5711 status diodes goes blinking red and I have restart XP virtual machine to be able to communicate again. I get an error message: "Connection setup(33:511) , System Error".
I can't find any solution for this problem.
I only found that with CP 1413 origin of problem can be that: "CP 1413 occupies the memory area 000D 0000 to 000D FFFF (complete D segment) or 000E 0000 to 000E FFFF (complete E segment). Normally MPI boards also use address areas in the D segment (from 000D C000) meaning they interfere with communication with the CP 1413."
But I am not able to set (or I don't know how) memory area for CP 5711.
Thank you for any answers
My proposal is to get Windows XP running normally, not inside a VM. Siemens software - esp. communication - is very picky about where it runs. Running under a VM gets a lot of things involved, e.g. "Is the problem lying in the host or the guest OS?", which in turn translates in: "Go Figure!".
