_Notes on authorization and upgrading:_                                     

                                                                            

Please note the remarks on the same topic made in SIMATIC S7 User Informa-  

tion 1997/13/005.                                                           

                                                                            

A new authorization is generated upon upgrading. Details are contained in   

the Product Information. The authorization diskette of the upgrade package  

contains only the 14-day emergency authorization. Users who upgrade from    

V3.0 to V3.1 require no new authorization for the update to V3.2.           

                                                                            

The STEP 7 authorization diskette (single and copy license) is a (yellow)   

multi-authorization diskette. In addition to the STEP 7 authorization, this 

diskette can also contain authorizations for the following optional pack-   

ages: CFC, S7-SCL, S7-Graph, S7-HiGraph, S7-PLCSIM, S7-PDIAG, Teleservice,  

NETRO, DOCPRO, M7-ProC/C+ +.                                                

                                                                            

                                                                            

You can obtain the update from STEP 7 V3.x to V3.2 either from your SIMATIC 

contact at your local Siemens office (at a nominal fee), or you can load it 

free of charge from the Internet under the same address as the SIMATIC User

If you wish to upgrade from STEP 7 or STEP 7 Mini, versions 1.x and 2.1 to  

3.2, please order the appropriate upgrade package from your SIMATIC contact 

at your local Siemens office.                                               

                                                                            

_New system prerequisites for STEP 7 V3.2:_                                 

                                                                            

Operating system:            Win 95 or Win NT V4.0                          

CPU:                         486 or Pentium                                 

RAM:                         32 Mbytes or more recommended for Win 95       

                             64 Mbytes or more recommended for Win NT       

                             (cache preferred)                              

Hard disk requirements:      100 to 140 Mbytes for STEP 7                   

                             (depending on the language version)            

                             + approx. 80 Mbytes for the Windows swap area. 

                                                                            

_Form of supply:_                                                           

                                                                            

The set of diskettes for STEP 7 V3.2 comprises approx. 60 diskettes. We     

therefore urgently recommend using a CD ROM as transport medium. We expect  

that from version 4 onward, STEP 7 will be supplied on CD ROM only. The up- 

grading of your programming device with a CD ROM drive not only allows you  

to install the current version more conveniently, it will also become a     

necessity in the future.                                                    

                                                                            

We can offer the following means of upgrading:                              

                                                                            

CD ROM upgrade kit for all existing PG 740 programming devices              

Catalog No.:     6ES7 740-0AA00-1XA0                                        

We recommend that the upgrade be carried out by a Siemens Service Dept.     

                                                                            

External CD ROM drive (incl. accessories) for operation on the parallel     

port of all PGs/PCs, 6x speed                                               

Catalog No.:     6ES7 740-0AA02-1XA0                                        

                                                                            

Your SIMATIC contact at your local Siemens office will answer any more      

questions you may have.
