Missing DLL after installation of Softnet IE from the SIMATIC NET CD (release 5/2000) with WinAC Slot V3.1

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

Why doesn't my WinAC Slot V3.1 (412/416-PCI) work, although I have installed the Softnet IE driver from the SIMATIC NET CD?

You are using a WinAC Slot V3.1 (412/416-PCI) and have installed the "Softnet IE" driver for your Ethernet card from the SIMATIC NET CD (at least 05/2000), but a DLL for the driver has not been installed. To install this DLL you must install the driver "S7 1613" from the SIMATIC NET CD. This installation adds the necessary TCP driver.
