On Wednesday in this article I discussed how to use Rockwell's PCDC webpage to look up the compatibility of Rockwell Software packages and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
In today's article we'll take a look at the results for RSLogix 5000 and Studio 5000 Logix Designer.
RSLogix 5000 compatibility with Windows XP:
RSLogix 5000 compatibility with Windows 7:
While the older versions are listed as “not compatible,” I've found they do work fairly well, but small issues (like not being able to open the help files) do pop-up from time to time.
RSLogix 5000 compatibility with Windows 8:
Finally, in the above screen shot of Rockwell's PCDC webpage we can see versions 16.03.00 -20.03 are all listed as not being Windows 8 compatible (I've never attempted to run them on Windows 8 myself.)
Studio 5000 compatibility with Windows XP:
Studio 5000 compatibility with Windows 7:
The remaining versions of Windows 7 are listed as “may be compatible” which I interpret as meaning these versions have not specifically been tested, but should work.
Studio 5000 compatibility with Windows 8:
I hope the above look at RSLogix/Studio 5000 Windows compatibility was helpful.
