How do you integrate an existing WinCC project into a STEP 7 project?

Configuration Notes:The following WinCC components must be installed to be able to import a WinCC project into a STEP 7 project:
  • SIMATIC Device Drivers
  • Object Manager
  • AS-OS Engineering
These components are on the WinCC Installations CD (Fig. 01). Furthermore, WinCC and STEP 7 have to be installed on the same computer. By importing the WinCC project into a STEP 7 project you can use the existing compression tool (packer) for archiving the WinCC project.

3 In the Windows Explorer, delete the WinCC project created in the STEP 7 project path, which is generated because of the newly created OS.
Sample project path:
C:\Programs\Siemens\Step7\EXAMPLES\exie\wincproj\'Name of the OS'
4 Now store the existing WinCC project in the STEP 7 project path using the Project Duplicator via the menu item "Save as...". You start the Project Duplicator in the Start menu under "Start > Simatic > WinCC > Tools".
