Is the Softing OPC Easy Connect Suite a 64-bit application?

Industrial Ethernet Implementation for Intel FPGAs - Simple and Efficient Solution for Designing Industrial Devices supporting Multiple Industrial Ethernet and Fieldbus Protocols As a leading supplier of industrial communication solutions Softing teamed-up with Intel and has generated an offering providing all the required hardware and firmware for implementing Industrial Ethernet and PROFIBUS. The latest drivers are backward compatible to older CAN interface cards and driver versions, to ensure that the CANproUSB works with older software applications. Softing Industrial Automation GmbH Richard-Reitzner-Allee 6 D-85540 Haar +49 (0)89 456 56-340. Softing Industrial Headquarter +49 89 456 56-340. As an industrial multiprotocol gateway, echocollect e offers a modern solution for further processing of process data. The addition 'e' in the product name stands for Ethernet, since the gateway only supports the connection to PLCs via TCP/IP protocols. Echocollect e supports local data logging and enables a bidirectional real-time connection between controllers and databases, direct OPC UA. If you like to transfer the runtime license from one PC to the other, then please send us your license key (format: XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX) or a copy of your license sheet per e-mail to: [email protected] The license key can be found on the delivery CD case or a separate license sheet.

The Softing OPC Easy Connect Suite is a 32-bit application that can be used on 64-bit systems in 32-bit mode without restrictions or performance reduction.

Background information from the German Wikipedia entry (translated excerpt):
The advantages of 64-bit CPUs include an easier calculation of large integer values. This offers benefits, for example, for encryption algorithms, graphical calculations (e.g. fixed point arithmetic for computer games), 64-bit file systems, or multimedia formats (MPEG2, MP3).
Another advantage over 32-bit architecture is that 64-bit systems can directly address more than four GB RAM. This is useful for applications with large memory requirements, such as video processing applications and database systems, provided they have been programmed for a 64-bit system. In most other applications – in particular, office applications – there is no subjectively noticeable speed advantage.

EasyConnect V2.x OPC2Database on 64Bit Systems

If EasyConnect OPC2Database is used on a 64Bit system it is essential, that the 32Bit version of the ODBC Database driver is installed. EasyConnect is not able to use 64Bit drivers.

Where can I find the configuration files of the OPC Easy Connect Suite?

It depends on which version of the OPC Easy Connect Suite you are using. Directory structure and configuration file names were changed between the versions 1.x and 2.x.
Version 1.x:

  • file path: <installation directory> (C:Program FilesSoftingOCT)
  • main configuration file: OCT.xml
  • trace file: file name and directory are user defined (under Diagnostics).
  • Storage: file name and path for storage items can be arbitrarily defined (default: <installation directory>Storage.txt)
  • Task: Folder and file names for add-on DLLs can be arbitrarily defined (default: <installation directory>Mytask.txt)
  • Subscription file: subscription configuration file name and path can be arbitrarily defined (default: <installation directory>MySubscription.txt)
  • Filter file: Filter configuration file name and path can be arbitrarily defined (default: <installation directory>Filter.txt)

Version 2.x:

  • file path: depends on the used operating system:

- Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008:


- Windows XP, Windows Server 2003:

C:Document and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataSoftingEasyConnectConfigurationX

  • main configuration file: OSF_Runtime.xml
  • trace file: file name is user defined. Only the file name can be set (the path is the path of the instance)
  • Storage: Storage renamed to Local Items, configuration file name and path are always relative to the main configuration file. (Path='.LocalItemsLocalItems.txt')
  • Task: folder and file names for add-on DLLs are fixed (Path='.TasksTasks.txt')
  • Subscription file: subscription file name and path are always relative to the main configuration file (Path='.TasksSubscriptions.txt')
  • Filter file: filter file name and path are always relative to the main configuration file. (Path='.FiltersConnection_2.txt'). The server connection name will be used as the name for the filter file.

Please use the menu items „Backup“ and „Restore“ in the Configurator (menu Configuration) for backup.
