PAC Project Versions


#1

Almost 95% of my projects were created with PAC Project version R9.6003-86. On one of my PCs, I must have used a more recent version maybe R9.6004-109, R9.6005-125 or R9.6006-131. First off, how can I tell which PAC Project this PC is running. (sure, I can see Control is R9.6e, Display is R9.6F Build 0092 and SoftPAC is v.R9.6a, but what Project version installed those?) Secondly, can I reinstall R9.6003-86 on this same PC and both versions will work (maybe in a different location on my PC)?

Let me know if anyone has made it work.

“First off, how can I tell which PAC Project this PC is running?”
If you look at the PAC Project readme file, there is a section that lists all the component versions for each particular PAC Project installer version. Look for the section titles “Application Versions in PAC Project Releases”:
Here are some examples…

  • PAC Control R9.6e
  • PAC Display R9.6f
  • PAC Manager R9.6c
  • PAC Project Tools R9.6a
  • PAC Redundancy Manager R9.6a
  • OptoDataLink R9.6c - OptoOPCServer R9.6a
  • SoftPAC software R9.5f | SoftPAC firmware R9.5f | SoftPAC Monitor R9.6a

So in other words, you look the versions of your applications and can work backward from there.

“Secondly, can I reinstall R9.6003-86 on this same PC and both versions will work (maybe in a different location on my PC)?”

Yes, you can have multiple versions of PAC Project on a computer, but you have to make sure you tell the installer to use a different directory.
