1. Delivery release information

With the delivery release of Service Pack 3, all WinCC flexible 2008 packages will be changed over to the Service Pack 3. The license keys from WinCC flexible 2008, 2008 SP1 and 2008 SP2 can be used without any change for WinCC flexible 2008 SP3 too.

Due to the statutory regulations for export control we are no longer able to provide the service packs for downloading in the Service&Support Portal. Because of this, the delivery of Service Pack 3 will be in the form of a DVD/CD or by Software Update Service only.

Customers with a valid Software Update Service contract (SUS contract) for WinCC flexible 2008 or WinCC V11 Comfort, Advanced and Professional, will receive the Service Pack 3 automatically.

For customers without a SUS contract, we provide the following supply sources: For a nominal fee the installation medium (DVD/CD) for updating WinCC flexible 2008, 2008 SP1 and 2008 SP2 to WinCC flexible 2008 SP3 can be ordered.

3.2. Special notes

  • Recently we have received word of some security issues. These will be solved with Service Pack 3.
    With this in mind, we would like to draw your attention to the following information:
    • Confirmation of security information
      • Starting with WinCC flexible 2008 SP3, the software setup requires a confirmation of an additional security information beside the license terms. This shall indicate the need for an overall IT security concept of the entire automation solution.
    • Link to Siemens Security Advisory
    • Industrial Security home page:
    • Operational Guidelines for Industrial Security
    • FAQ entry for disabling the Telnet service on a HMI Panel
    • FAQ entry for configuration of Runtime Loader
  • Installation of WinCC flexible 2008 SP3 on HP Laptop.
    During the test of WinCC flexible 2008 SP3 we have identified incompatibilities with the HP keyboard driver on HP Laptops. To prevent these incompatibilities, the HP keyboard driver or the WinCC flexible Runtime keyboard driver has to be deinstalled before the installation of WinCC flexible 2008 SP3.
    • How to deinstall the keyboard driver is described under the following entry ID 58217334
       
  • ProTool Migration:
    Because of the neccessary changes for the 64 Bit support under Windows 7, the ProTool migration cannot be offered any more with Service Pack 3 for WinCC flexible 2008.
