  • Associated product(s)

An error has been discovered in the PCS 7 documentation.
In the manual "Product Brief on Software Updates from V5.1/V5.2 to PCS 7 V7.0 SP1", chapter 6 "Guide - Basic Procedure for Updating Software", step 23 states that the Project Migrator is only to be run in the case of a software update with new functions. This step must also be carried out in software updates without new functions.
