Message: "CP5613/CP5614 has already started" - SIMATIC NET CD 07/2001

Why, when programming the CP5613 or CP5614, do I get the message that the CP has already started? I have installed the drivers for the SIMATIC NET CD 07/2001.

When calling the function DP_start_cp() on the DP Base programming interface, you get the above message.

Contrary to the earlier SIMATIC NET software versions, the CP already activates during the booting-up procedure so as to allow remote loading of the PC configuration on the PROFIBUS. So it is not necessary to call this function in the user program.
