Hello Everybody,

I have a problem opening an excisting project or creating a new one. Each time I trie to do this, WinCCExplorer gives the following message:

Cannot open/create WinCC project - Project Manager can't start the basis apllication XREF

I uninstalled and reinstalled WinCC 7.0 but no luck. Has anyone an idea what is going on? The software is running on a Windows 2003 Server.

Best regards,

William

Hi

- which other software is installed?
- in which sequence did you install your software?
- which user rights do you have?
- are there any entries in the diagnose files (..\wincc\diagnose)?

Problem Solved!!!

I was trying to open the project on the server by using Remote Desktop. I still open it by Remote Desktop but now I use the /console option to take over the server.

Thanks you all for your help.

Best regards,

William.

The /console option has been removed in XP SP3. You now have to use /admin to connect from an XP SP3 machine to the console session.

Hi,

I have the same problem.

Just updated WinCC v7.0 to WinCC v 7.0 SP 1 on 3 machines. 2 machines are fine except 1.
Software running on XP Pro Version 2002 SP 2.

Any idea what I can try?

Thanks

Good afternoon.

When you create a project WinCC 7.2 gives an error "Cannot open or start WinCC project, as Project Manager cannot start basic application XREF".

Operating system WinXP SP3.

In the beginning it was established Step 7 5.5, then WinCC 7.2, Step v12.

In the application of a diagnostic file.

What can be done? In a system with administrator privileges.

New question split into Project Manager can't start basis application XREF using Wincc V7.0+Sp3 on a windows 7 PC.
