Procedure for storing topology files/data flows in the STEP 7 project if SINETPLAN is not installed

If SINETPLAN is not installed on a PC with STEP 7, then STEP 7 does not store any topology files/data flows in the STEP 7 project which are needed for subsequent import into SINETPLAN.

You have the options below to meet the requirements that STEP 7 stores the data required for SINETPLAN in the project.

  1. You manually change the necessary keys in the Registry as described in the documentation/Help for SINETPLAN (not recommended).

  2. On the PC with STEP 7 you execute one of the Reg files available in the "Download" section:

    - "Regentry_for_STEP7_Classic_32Bit.reg" for the 32-bit version of Windows

    - "Regentry_for_STEP7_Classic_64Bit.reg" for the 64-bit version of Windows

The two Reg files are in the ZIP file below:
