How do you archive projects in WinCC flexible and which files are required?

Project archiving and migration
If you wish to archive a WinCC flexible project, you can reduce the volume and file size significantly by archiving just the following project files. Please refer also to the notes at the end of the entry on migrating WinCC flexible projects (opening a WinCC flexible project that is based on a previous version).

No. Project archiving in WinCC flexible 2007 and WinCC flexible 2008
1 Standalone project (a WinCC flexible project not integrated in STEP 7)
Start WinCC flexible ES and archive the project via the menu command "Project > Archive...". The project to be archived must not be opened during archiving.
The ZIP file created contains only the two files required for restoring your project - "Project.hmi" and "Project_log.LDF".
The next time you dearchive and open the project, the files deleted previously are automatically regenerated.

2 WinCC flexible integrated in STEP 7
In the case of a project integrated in STEP 7, you use the archiving method of the SIMATIC Manager (File > Archive...).
From STEP 7 version V5.4 SP2 onwards, the WinCC flexible files are automatically reduced to files required for restoring your project. 

The next time you dearchive and open the project, the files deleted previously are automatically regenerated.

If you are using STEP 7 V5.4 + SP1, please refer to the information on "Project archiving in WinCC flexible 2005 SP1, Point 2".

 

No. Project archiving in WinCC flexible 2005 SP1
1 Standalone project (a WinCC flexible project not integrated in STEP 7)
If just the WinCC flexible project is to be archived without information for the delta compile, then only the following files are required.
  • ProjectName.hmi
  • ProjectName_log.ldf

The files are located in the relevant project directory.

The next time you open the project, the files deleted previously are automatically regenerated.

2 WinCC flexible integrated in STEP 7
The procedure depends on the version of STEP 7:

Up to STEP 7 V5.4 SP1
If the WinCC flexible project integrated in STEP 7 is to be archived without information for the delta compile, you can delete the following files.

  • All files with the name "Project_n_{{..............................}}.data"
    e.g. -> PROJECT_1_{{9f58e235-cb6e-40eb-829f-e23350eedaca}}.data
  • Project_n.Device_1.fwx
    e.g. -> PROJECT_1.SIMATIC HMI Station(1).fwx

The files are located in your STEP 7 project directory under

  • "HmiES  > Devicename_n >"
    e.g. "HmiES  > PROJECT_1 >"

Then archive your STEP 7 project as usual.

The next time you open the project, the files deleted previously are automatically regenerated.

From STEP 7 V5.4 SP2 onwards
From STEP 7 version V5.4 SP2 onwards, you can use the archiving method of the SIMATIC Manager (File > Archive...).
The WinCC flexible files are automatically reduced to files required for restoring your project.

The next time you dearchive and open the project, the files deleted previously are automatically regenerated.

 

No. Project archiving in WinCC flexible 2004 / 2005
1 Standalone project (a WinCC flexible project not integrated in STEP 7)
If just the WinCC flexible project is to be archived without information for the delta compile, then only the following files are required.
  • ProjectName.hmi
  • ProjectName_log.ldf

The files are located in the relevant project directory.

The next time you open the project, the files deleted previously are automatically regenerated.

2 WinCC flexible integrated in STEP 7
If the WinCC flexible project integrated in STEP 7 is to be archived without information for the delta compile, then only the following files of WinCC flexible are required.
  • GuidId.bin
  • GuidTp.bin
  • IdGuid.bin
  • ProjectName.devices
  • ProjectName.hmi
  • ProjectName_log.ldf

The files are located in your STEP 7 project directory under

  • "HmiES  > Devicename_n >"
    e.g. "HmiES  > PROJECT_1 >"

The next time you open the project, the files deleted previously are automatically regenerated.

Notes on migration
Opening a WinCC flexible project that is based on a previous version.
When you open a WinCC flexible ES project with more recent version of WinCC flexible ES, a message is displayed during the opening procedure indicating that the project to be opened has been created with a previous version of WinCC flexible.

Acknowledge the message with the "OK" button and WinCC flexible automatically creates a backup file. The file is located in the same project directory as the remaining configuration.
You recognize the backup file generated by the names "Project_name.backup.hmi" and "Project_name.backup_log.LDF".

Example
MP370_Touch.backup.hmi, MP370_Touch.backup_log.LDF
You can archive these files elsewhere. They are not necessary for the WinCC flexible configuration.
