Setting configuration to "not activated" in the database

QUESTION:
How can you set the status of a configuration to "not activated" outside WinCC?

ANSWER:
If you can no longer start up a configuration in activated status, then this can be put into the inactivated status by executing the following commands.

IMPORTANT
Generally no responsibility shall be taken for any changes made directly to the configuration database, as this is the responsibility of the user. In any case it is recommended to make a back-up of the configuration database (<configurationname>.DB) before accessing as follows:

  1. Start the application "ISQL.EXE" using "Execute" in the task bar.
  2. Under the menu item Command CONNECT the user must log in to the database:
    ID: dba
    Login: sql
    Database file: here you must enter the database file with full path name.
  3. If a connection has been set up to the database, you must enter the following commands in the "Command" window and run each one using "EXECUTE".
    SELECT * FROM MCPTPROJECT
    <EXECUTE>
    UPDATE MCPTPROJECT SET PROJECTMODE=1
    <EXECUTE>
