[?]: Convert Wincc 5.0 to 6.0 to Wincc 7.5

Post by sandumon84 » Mon Feb 01, 2021 6:10 am


I have a project backup of Wincc5.0, customer had a system with old windows and wincc 5.0 system which is not working now.
We are installing a new system with latest wincc HMI.
As none have the overview page or layout we are trying to get it from the wincc5.0 project.
I have tried installing virtual box with windows NT4 guest OS but unable to install the wincc 5.0 as its not detecting USB or file sharing .
Anyways after discussing with Siemens I understand that converting to wincc 7.5 is possible by step by step procedure
so I am looking for Wincc 6.0 download link or if any one have a better solution please share..

Hi sandumon84, here is the step by step to convert wincc program from older version of wincc to the newer one:

WinCC Current version ---> Upgradeable to version
V3.x--->V4.02 SP3
V4.02 SP3--->V5.0 SP2 or 5.1 SP2
V5.0 SP2 or 5.1 SP2--->V6.0 SP1-4 or V6.2 SP2-3
V6.0 SP1-4 or V6.2 SP2-3---> V7.0 SP0-3
V7.0 SP0-3 --->V7.2
V7.2 ---> V7.5
SO, base on your needs, you will want to have WinCC V6.0, V7.0, V7.2. I suggest that you install them on the virtual windows so that you can remove them after
