I searched the Siemens website and learned I can update my version STEP 7-Micro/WIN 32 V3.02 software to work under the Windows 2000 OS. What I have will only work under Win95 and 98 before second edition. I have to return to this machine and make some changes which I can no longer do.
I found Entry ID: 16649966 S7 Micro/WIN 32 (V3.2) SL or SP4 (single licence - service pack 4?) will enable function with all Windows except VISTA.
My problem is I can't find how to down load this "Update". (too many ups and downs)
Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks in advance!!!

You can't typically just download an update for obsolete software. If you had version 4.0, you can download service packs to upgrade is to 4.0 Service Release 5. But you need to buy the version up to go from 3 to 4 from Siemens.

Here's a link to the Siemens technical website for the S7-200. Manuals and other info can be found here.

Thanks to all (3 sites) for the help.
Well, I found and downloaded what I thought I needed. I guess I misunderstood what I was reading. I thought the Service Pack 2 would enable me to run the software in Win2000. The software already has to be loaded to install the Service Pack. This would be okay but I can't install the software under the Win2000 OS. I don't understand the "support for PPI drivers". I guess they are talking about the programming cable but why do you need these drivers if the software only works under Win95?
Can anyone explain this to me? (I have V3.02) Is it PPI cable to modem!?

DESCRIPTION:
This version 3.1.2.22 update of Service Pack 2 replaces the previously posted version 3.1.2.20.
Customers who have already procured the STEP 7 Micro/WIN32 V3.x can download the Service Pack with the update to V3.1.2 free of charge.
What's new in STEP 7-Micro/WIN32 V3.1 SP2:
Full support for PPI drivers on all current Windows operating systems, including Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, and 2000 (with Windows NT only supports a single master)
Full support for the S7-226XM CPU's
Ability to create a symbol from an absolute address through the "Define Symbol" dialog
Corrects previous problem that caused program elements to be inadvertently modified and deleted
Prevents problem with ladder conversions by requiring that any Version 2.x ladder project be saved in STL before it can be opened in V3.1.2.22


I looked at the difference of the OS.dat file and noticed the added line for Win98 but I see nothing for Win2000. Maby that falls under something else.

[Info]
Name=PLATFORM
Version=1.00.000

[0x0009]
OS Independent=0x0000000000000000
Windows 3.1 & 3.11=0x0000000000000001
Windows 95=0x0000000000000010
Windows 98=0x0000000000000040
Windows NT 3.51 (Intel)=0x0000000000001000
Windows NT 3.51 (Alpha)=0x0000000000002000
Windows NT 3.51 (MIPS)=0x0000000000004000
Windows NT 4.0 (Intel)=0x0000000000010000
Windows NT 4.0 (Alpha)=0x0000000000020000
Windows NT 4.0 (MIPS)=0x0000000000040000

Anyway, I will just find a laptop with Win95 to work with. Sorry, no more Seimens for me after having 2 programming cables go bad and I only had 2 processors to install and program. I think they were $350 each and no help from Siemens and no cor charge. When I get this program change done - assuming the PPI cable I have is still good - I am going to off the whole kit to ebay. Not sure why I bought it, but I also have STEP 7-Mini V5.0.

Thanks again for the input!!

The PPI drivers are for the communication cable. You need these drivers in order to communicate with the PLC.

If you cannot get your version of software to install, then you are going to need to buy a newer version. Service packs only update installed software.
