How I can simulate controller with version 5.0 SP2
I have virtual machine with 800xa software, including Control Builder M Professional v5.0 sp2. Can I simulate controller? I want to view variables in the SCADA and the OPC. It has installed soft controller v5.1. But when I try to download the program in soft controller I see this error:
"Error 9159 : Controller_1:HW Build version for controller is not supported by Control Builder or differs between dependent controllers.
Cancel going online with download"
Can I simulate controller for version 5.0?
Can I use Control Builder v5.1 (and soft controller v5.1) with 800xa?
The error message "Error 9159 HW build version for controller is not supported by Control Builder" can occur if the system Extension "AC800M Connect" was not loaded after an upgrade and/or the CBM Project was not updated/upgraded in CBM Project. So an old connected Hardware Library is connected to the Controller, which does not fit to the updated Controller/Softcontroller.
Please check the correct version is installed for both Softcontroller and AC800M Connect.
Please go to the Admin structure-->Administrative objects-->domains--> <system name>
Click on the system extensions aspect and check for the Ac800M connect.There should be a cross mark for both installed column and loaded column. If not then there is version mismatch or the extension not correctly loaded. Perhaps I can help you if you can share the details of the system extension aspect.
