AC 500 PLC configuration without option tree
It must be because you are not Selecting proper Hardware Controller version,while creating a New Project( it relates on Software version too).
As details are not mentioned,I am just assuming that you are using PM582 as an example.
Just create a New Project, and select " PM582 V1.2 ".
Later your part will be available in PLC configuration.
Attached example file.
I have identical problem. If I creatre configuration by myself and do I/O mapping (Capture1), then after starting CoDeSys from Automation Builder even the simpliest programs wont work (Capture2 and Capture3). I tried writing values in Simulation mode and output doesn't change as it usually does if I create program from CoDeSys directly. This was not a case only with PM583-ETH processor, but with each one processor that doesn't have option tree in PLC Configuration in CoDeSys resources.
Sorry I am a beginner. Thanks.
