I can't download to my PanelView Plus 7?

Reader Question:

I have a PanelView Plus 7 400 and FactoryTalk View Studio 8.0, but cannot download my project to the PanelView Plus? I've also tried using a USB Flash Drive to transfer the program too, but the PanelView Plus 7 won't run it?

I've had the exact same issue!

Even though View Studio 8.0 does list the PanelView Plus 7 400, I also could not find way to get the PVP7 400 to run my .MER

When you try to download the .MER using the transfer utility, the PVP7 is not a recognized device.

And when you try to run the .MER after transferring it to the PVP7 using a memory stick, you get the following error on the PVP7:

“This terminal can only run HMI applications (MERs) designed for PanelView Plus Compact or PanelView Plus 7 standard terminals. Please load an appropriate HMI application (MER)”

PVP7-Error

This happens even though View Studio 8.0 clearly shows the PanelView Plus 7 listed as an available terminal:

PVP7-List-Pre-Patch

To correct this issue, you need to download and install the latest View Studio Patch Roll-up, which you can get from the below link:

After applying this patch, you will see an updated list of terminals to select from in View Studio:

PVP7-List-Post-Patch

Your PanelView Plus 7 will also now show up correctly in RSLinx Enterprise, and your newly created 8.0 MER Runtime File will run on your PanelView Plus 7.

PVP7-Standard-In-RSLinx-Pos

Hope this helps!
