Vertically you have a display of all the currently available versions of the PCS 7 libraries and horizontally the PCS 7 versions.

If the updating of a PCS 7 library goes over a red line, updating is then only possible with an AS STOP. Updating that is not separated by a red line can be done without an AS STOP.
