S7-Hardware Update

How to update S7 Hardware ?

Sometimes we can’t open other S7 program with our S7 software, because some hardware can’t recognize by our software.
We must update our S7 from Siemens (http://www.siemens.com/automation/step7-hwconfig2).

  2. Open Project
  3. Double click on Hardware
  4. HW Config window will opened
  5. Select “Options”, then “Install HW Updates” (Figure 1)
  6. New window will opened, Install HW Updates (Figure 2)
  7. Click Download from Internet and Execute
  8. All type of hardware, that aren’t in your software will appear.
  9. Select which hardware you want to install
  10. Push Install button
All hardware updates files will save in C:\HWUpdates (default).

    First, update your S7 service pack from Siemens Websites.If still can’t open, then you need upgrade your S7 to newest. I think V5.4 SP4 (?)
