Please give answer in detail and i want to run these system offline for training purpose so which file i need to change so that i shall run it offline.
I have seen same comment in another question, hence trying to combine your queries
1. How to install CBF and DigiVis
It’s easy to install Freelance, if you are using current version i.e V9.2 from your installation CD run Autoplay.exe, Select freelance software and follow steps it is self-explanatory. You can select separate CBF or DigiVis to be installed on different PC or you can select combined Eng. And Operator station on one PC.( in your case if you want to setup for training purpose you can go for demo option combined ES & OS Option)
2. Backup Export/Import
You have tried “import backup” option , for that you must have project exported before to an operator station or you have backup file with name ‘Backup.zip’ then you can enter resource ID & IP of operator station where this file is located once you press OK that project back will restored, also note that project should be closed before imports starts
Looking to care to be taken I propose to use export/import option
Go to your running ES Open project Menu item Project > Export , This will export project in CSV format at your selected location.
Take that copy on thumb drive and place it on new PC( in your case your training PC)
Start CBF there and go to menu project > select option Import, now select locally saved exported CSV file and you are able to import your backup.
Pls note DigiVis configuration is inside this csv file hence once imported with project you need to match with resource id’s of ES & OS from configuration (go to All Programs > ABB Industrial IT > Freelance V9.2 > Configure)
And check that resource ID’s are matching between configure & network configuration in CBF/HW manager. Also change IP address in network configuration to new PC IP address interms of go online and download.
