QUESTION: How do I integrate SIWAREX M into the hardware profile of SIMATIC Manager (from V5.4 SP3)?
ANSWER: The SIWAREX M module is integrated with a HSP (hardware support package). Firstly the archive ( 77 KB ) must be unzipped. Secondly it must be installed into the hw-config. The pdf-document ( 216 KB ) describes the installation.
ATTENTION: Please check before the installation in the Windows control panel inside the list of installed software, if there is an entry like „SIMATIC SIWAREX M Vx.x“. If that’s the case, this software must be uninstalled before the installation of the HSP!
