UPDATE: As of November 2017 this procedure still works as long as you follow all the steps, including Step 5.
I commend Rockwell on their efforts to improve their website, however it's disappointing they often don't provide redirects from old pages to new, leaving thousands of daily visitors landing on broken or missing pages like the one below:
That in mind, I've changed my RSLogix Micro Starter Lite Download Link from going directly to Rockwell, to now come here where I can keep the below procedure to download the software up-to-date:
1) Start by navigating to www.ab.com:
3) Type in “RSLogix Micro” in the search box and then choose “RSLogix Micro Starter Lite w/o RSLinx EN” from the list:
4) Now select “Download”:
5) Select the small picture of a hard drive as shown below:
Important: Only the downloads for version 10 and 11 have links to the software downloads, so it's important to chose the link shown above:
6) Select the check-boxes as shown below:
7) Then select the “Download Now” button on the bottom right:
8) At this point you may be asked to login. If you don't already have a free account go ahead and create one and log in so you can continue with the download:
9) Accept the terms:
11) Now select the links to download RSLogix Micro Starter Lite, RSLinx Classic, and RS Emulate 500:
Note: Below you'll find a screenshot of Rockwell's website showing which versions of Windows 7 RSLogix Micro 8.3 is supported on:

First of all, I wanna say thanks, because your forum is very interesting, and Ii'm using it to improve my knowledge in some things.
I wanna ask you if you know how can I download rslogix emulator 5000, because only the 500 version seems available.
Thanks a lot.Good afternoon @marandlo,
You know, Emulate 5000 has not been a free download like Emulate 500 has. In fact, Eumulate 500 is the only free Emulate download Rockwell makes that I know of.
