Upgrading Control Project from 800xa4.1 to 800xa 5.1 FP4
We are trying to upgraded the system from 800xa 4.1 to 5.1 FP4.
They we startded opening the control builder project , then it starts the upgrade after some times it hangs and we are not able to continue server busy message popup.
Same thing was working when we did on 800xa 5.1 system with out FP4 32Bit operating system.
Is it a know problem
Please explain in brief which lib u r using and you are doing offline upgrade or online upgrade.
Have you followed the upgrade manual procedure?
Are you using Ff?
Ensure before upgrading from 4.1 to 5.1 controller builder download all controllers in 4.1 and then copy the folder c:/program files/abb industrial it /engineering it/ controller builder M proffesional.
Copy the total files inside this folder
After upgrading the system and ensured all extensions are loaded and matched then copy this folder files in 5.1 system same path and open control builder m and then tools-maintanance- upgrade project here you select the project and press upgrade.
While upgrading it will take some time based on size of the project but ensure you have minimum 4gb ram is installed the PC where you are trying to upgrade the project
Could you please explain "upgrade the system from 800xa 4.1 to 5.1 FP4" ?
This is not possible in one step.
You need to do it in two steps ( 4.1 --> 5.1 Revision --> 5.1 FP4 ).
In the first step, once the 4.1 is upgraded to 5.1 Revision using System Installer, perform the post upgrade steps including control project upgrade and then update to FP4 using FUT tool. This shouldnt create any issues.
If still the problem persists, attach the ControlBuilder sessions log file for more information.
