Update CI867 Firmware directly into CI867?
Is it possible to update a CI867's firmware by connecting directly to the CI-867?
When I attempt to update the CI867's firmware via ControlBuilder-->Controller1-->Remote Systems, it is wanting me to remove applications. Just curious if there are any other options.

I'm doing like that:
Create an empty project and create the correct HW configuration - CPU module and CI867, regarding to what you have phisically. It is not necessary to create the full HW configuration. You should not connect any application to this controller !
Download this project and go OnLine. Proceed with what you described - Remote Systems -> Firmware Update.
Then open the real project and download it again.
The way I updated is:
My previous configuration was working Okay. And I added hardware CI867 ,and attempted for Update directly in Control builder.
1) At first you should have your proevious hardware configuration Firmware updated.
2) Then,go Offline, enter in REMOTE SYSTEMS.
3) Update the Firmware.
Make sure that whenever you need to Update an CI unit's firmware to be updated,at that time , you need not to update the Entire System firmware update.
Still if you have issue,firstly take a healthy Backup and then DISCONNECT APPLICATION,(dont remove).
And attempt the same.
