Installation Instructions

Free Version

    2. Double-click on the downloaded installer
    3. For installation, make sure you have administrator rights on the PC. In some cases the installer will start another install (e.g. WinPcap, .NET, C++ runtimes). Make sure to complete the main installer once the other installers have finished.

Pro Version

  1. PRO Version only: Download and install STEP7 V14 TIA Portal Professional (it’s free, but requires a Siemens customer support account)
  2. PRO Version only: If using STEP7 V13SP1, make sure to load the hardware support package (HSP) into the configuration tool prior to configuration. If using V14, this step can be ignored.
