How can I prevent the SIMATIC Logon window from appearing in CFC
when I want to compile/download the S7 program?
If you have installed SIMATIC Logon on your system, then all the
activities that you run in CFC/SFC will be logged as well. For this
you have to log in to the program with a user name and password
each time you compile or download the program. To avoid this, in
PCS 7 version V6.0 SP2 you can disable the Logon window and define
a fixed user.
This fixed user is then logged on automatically for all PCS 7
applications from the time you start the SIMATIC Manager to the
time you close the SIMATIC Manager. Please note that this automatic
logon is valid for all PCS 7 applications, including some
applications for which you might not wish to grant automatic access
(e.g. OS, License Manager,...).
- In the SIMATIC Manager select Options > Simatic Logon
- Enter the user name and associated password.
In the Start bar you now see the running SIMATIC Logon Service
including the user logged on.
