AB RSLinx Software

Post by Christine_1914 » Thu Sep 01, 2011 8:51 am

Hi, (sos)

I am currently working on an AB project.

I just want to know:

1.If there is any difference between RSLinx Classic Gateway CPR 9 SR1 and RSLinx Classic Gateway CPR 9 SR3.
2. Does it matters if I loaded RSLinx Classic Gateway CPR 9 SR3 to run RSView32 CPR 9 SR1?
3. Is there something that I still need to configure? (from the below case)

(There is an existing and running RSLinx on-site, but we just borrowed the license (RSLinx Classic Gateway CPR 9 SR1) from Rockwell.

We bought this new license RSLinx CPR 9 SR3 to replace the existing license.

I registered the license via internet at the office and transferred it on-site. I uninstalled the existing RSLinx and installed the new one (the one that we bought) togeteher with the registered license. But when I opened the RSView32 runtime, it is not stating on online mode. I tried to ping the SLC505 and look for it at the new installed RSLinx and it was there.

Note: I didn't create a back-up of the one I uninstalled.)

P.S. I encountered this service pack issue with Siemens' WinCC 7.0 SP1 and SP2. That's why I'm thinking if AB's service pack also matters and compatible to each other.

Hello !

The difference in versions should not give you any problems.
I think the latest version 2.57 also supporte Win7.

Have you confugured driver and IP adress for PLC in RSLinx ?
in menu->Communication->Configure drivers-> Add Ethernet->
In station mapping, write IP of PLC->Apply->Ok, and working :-)

Regards Lars

I already did this configuration but with no positive output for the RSView32 to go online. :(

May I know what is this for? I tried to open the link but my Firefox prompted a message "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (thunder) isn't associated with any program."
