Migration Tool TIA Portal
In many cases, a project that you want to migrate is not on the same programming device / PC as the one on which the TIA Portal is installed. The original project must therefore first be converted to a compatible format for the migration. Then copy the migration file to the programming device or PC with the latest installation of the TIA Portal. There, you can then import the file into the TIA Portal and create a project in the current file format of the TIA Portal.
To perform migration without the original software, you need to take the following steps:
- Install the Migration Tool on the programming device / PC with the source project.
- Start the Migration Tool and use it to convert the source project into the migration file format with the corresponding file extension ".amxx".
- When performing this step, ensure that the complete software required for processing the source project is installed on the programming device / PC. This includes all required service packs, hardware support packages and all the add-on software necessary for processing the original project. If some products are not installed, the migration cannot be performed or can only be partially performed.
- Copy the migration file to the destination system with the most recent installation of the TIA Portal.
- Note that all software required for configuring all the devices listed in the migration file must be installed on the destination system.
- Perform the migration within the TIA Portal and specify the migration file as the source.
- Check the log file following the migration and systematically work through any remarks in the newly created project. Also pay special attention to the remarks in the Inspector window after the initial compiling of the configuration.
