I know its not listed as a compatible OS but has any one attempted to run CIMPLICITY 8.2 on Win10?
It is currently installed in a power plant, GE wants 150k to upgrade. I told them to go pound sand I will pay ABB to build out the rest of controls in our BOP before I pay GE 150k for 3 machines!Interesting question. I have always tried running later version on Windows XP or Windows 7. but never tried running 8.2 on Win10. If it installs, you should be good. I would imagine it is possible. However, I think you can upgrade to Cimplicity 9.0 or 9.5 at a very cheap price. I would recommend going that course of action if this is going to be used in an industrial place.
Well I just contacted GE Digital to move our licenses over to us as they were listed under foxguard the company GE buys their HMIs from.. But GE Power does not give us the option to just do the software that in it self is normal GE BS.. I would rather not upgrade the whole package, We are simply needing to move to windows 10 for NERC requirements.. Once I have control of our assets I will ask GE Digital what a upgrade would cost..sorry...I wanted to clarify that last statement. I meant: "it may be cheap to reach out to GE and just get the price of updating the Cimplicity 8.2 to Cimplicity 9.0 FOR THE LICENSING ONLY" the rest you would do by yourself.
