Configuration Notes
The following WinCC components must be installed to be able to import a WinCC project into a STEP 7 project:

  • SIMATIC Device Drivers
  • Object Manager 
  • AS-OS Engineering

These components are on the WinCC Installation CD (Fig. 01). Furthermore, WinCC and STEP 7 have to be installed on the same computer. By importing the WinCC project into a STEP 7 project you can use the existing compression tool (packer) for archiving the WinCC project.


Fig. 01

Note
More information on installing additional components (taking the example of "Smart Tools") in different versions of WinCC is available in Entry ID: 10880206 .

Instructions
You have the following options for importing a previously separate WinCC project into your STEP 7 project:

1. Procedure for WinCC V6.0 SP4 and higher
 
No. Procedure
1 In the SIMATIC Manager you execute the menu command "Options > OS Import...".


Fig. 02

2 Press the button marked to open the selection window shown in Fig. 04.


Fig. 03

3 Select the Projectname.mcp file that you wish to import and press the "Open" button.


Fig. 04

4 Check the project path for the OS to be imported and press the "Import OS" button.


Fig. 05

Note
More information on importing WinCC projects with the SIMATIC Manager is available in the WinCC Information System > Working with WinCC > The Integration of WinCC in SIMATIC Manger > Managing WinCC Projects and Objects with SIMATIC Manager > Importing a WinCC Project with SIMATIC Manager.

2. General procedure for all versions of WinCC
 
No. Procedure
1 Insert an Operator Station (OS) into your STEP 7 project.


Fig. 06

2 Change the name of the OS to the one in your WinCC project.


Fig. 07

3 In the Windows Explorer, delete the WinCC project created in the STEP 7 project path, which is generated because of the newly created OS. 
Sample project path: 
C:\Programs\Siemens\Step7\EXAMPLES\exie\wincproj\'Name of the OS'
4 Now store the existing WinCC project in the STEP 7 project path using the Project Duplicator via the menu item "Save as...". You start the Project Duplicator in the Start menu under "Start > Simatic > WinCC > Tools".

Note
More information on importing WinCC projects with the SIMATIC Manager is available in the WinCC Information System > Working with WinCC > The Integration of WinCC in SIMATIC Manger > Managing WinCC Projects and Objects with SIMATIC Manager > Importing a WinCC Project with SIMATIC Manager.
