Hardware Requirements
Software Requirements
graphic
Note: This release is not intended to run on a 32-bit operating system. All operating systems listed are the 64-bit variant.
IMPORTANT
Keep these operating system considerations in mind:
  • Universal C Runtime (CRT) is a Windows operating system component that enables core functionality on the Windows operating system. It was introduced in Windows 10 and distributed to most computers running earlier supported operating systems. This component is present on computers that have been kept up to date.
When installing the Logix Designer application on computers that have not been updated, a prompt displays to install Universal C Runtime or to update the computer to at least the Microsoft April 2014 update roll-up.
  • While the Windows 8.1 and later operating systems run on many touch-enabled devices, various features of the Logix Designer application may not be touch-enabled. Most functions are expected to work with touch, but the software has only been tested with a keyboard and mouse.
  • Logix Designer was tested with UAC set to the most restrictive level (Always notify). This version of the Logix Designer application is also expected to operate correctly when UAC is configured for any less restrictive setting.
  
Preferred operating systems

Preferred operating systems are prioritized for support, testing, and post-release patch qualifications. These operating systems are preferred for this release:

High Resolution Display Support

Windows 10 v1703 / Windows Server 2016 or later is the recommended operating system if running this software with a 2K or 4K High Resolution Display with scaling up to 125%.

Acceptable results can also be expected with:

Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008 is not recommended for display scaling greater than 125%.

System features for Logix Designer v34.00

Logix Designer application version v33.01 has the same new and enhanced features and new supported hardware as v34.00.

New features
Use date and time data types to standardize time and date values in Logix 5000 control systems. Standardized date and time values increase the accuracy and reliability of time-stamped inputs, scheduled outputs, and time-based registration for motion control. They also help increase accuracy for Sequence of Events, Time-stamped Data Logging and Analytics, and Time Synchronization within and across systems.
Specify a point in time with absolute time data types: DT (date and time) and LDT (long date and time). Specify a duration or length of time with relative time data types: TIME32 (duration of time for 32-bit storage), TIME (duration of time for 64-bit storage), and LTIME (long duration of time for 64-bit storage). Date and time data types are supported in these instructions: ADD, SUB, CLR, MOV, EQU, GEQ, GRT, LEQ, LES, NEQ, GSV, and SSV.
Enhanced features
Users can now program higher-precision cam data and access the double-precision Cam Profile coefficients (C0, C1, C2, C3) for advanced cam planning.
Users can now replace a currently running cam either immediately when the request is made or scheduled at a specific position along the cam path.
Users can access information on how to configure an articulated dependent J1, J2, J3, and J6 coordinate system. They can also access information on how to configure an articulated independent J1, J2, J3, J4, J5, and J6 coordinate system.
Application Parameter Management allows Rockwell Automation to pre-configure our robot applications and - by using the Application Code Manager – to offer a turnkey solution for our customers to configure our robotics partners’ products. This feature also allows the robot partner’s intellectual property to be hidden from the users. The attributes added for this feature include:
Improvements in the package download process help reduce the time required to download a project to 5x80 controllers.

This anomaly first identified in version 32.00.

Subroutine called by locked routine through JSR instruction might not show energized power rail (Lgx00218331)

When a locked routine uses a JSR instruction to call a subroutine, Logix Designer sometimes fails to display the power rails in the subroutine as energized. The problem is limited to the incorrect display; the execution flow in the controller is still correct.

This anomaly first identified in version 32.00.

  

Labels are cut off and dislocated in BOOTP-DHCP Server applications (Lgx00152848)

When the font size in Windows 7 is set to 125%, the labels in the Network Settings and DHCP properties of BOOTP-DHCP Server application are cut off, making them unreadable. They are also dislocated, where they do not match with the proper input fields.

This anomaly first identified in version 23.00.

Error in the content of Studio 5000 Logix Designer application generated reports (1421415)

"ACD filename - Label does not exist" appears at the top of the page instead of "ACD filename - Controller Organizer Listing" when using the Generate Report menu option. 

This anomaly first identified in version 33.00.

Fatal error when converting a project to a newer major revision (1476922)]]]
A fatal error sometimes occurs when converting a project to a newer major revision where issues exist in the ChangeLog.
To work around this issue, export from the older project to a .L5K or .L5X file and import the project to a newer major revision to avoid the fatal error.
This anomaly first identified in version 16.00.
  

Error when attempting to run a trend (1435208)

The Logix Designer application is unable to run a trend in v29 or earlier after switching communication software from RSLinx Classic to FactoryTalk Linx in another instance of the Logix Designer application v31 and later on the same workstation.

Once a trend is run in the Logix Designer application v31 and later, using FactoryTalk Linx as the communication software, you will receive this error message if you then attempt to run a trend in the Logix Designer application v29 or earlier on the same workstation:

Error: <trend name> - : Can’t open the specified RSLinx driver.

For more information, refer to the technical note BF23206.

This anomaly first identified in version 20.00.

Not enough graphics resources to perform the operation requested. Closing windows will free graphic resources (1623620)

Closing SFC routines online in run mode causes a Windows GDI object memory leak. When this occurs, this window’s operating system dialog box may appear.

When the anomaly occurs, the online project can be saved but opening any other windows results in the dialog box appearing.

The workaround is to close the Logix Designer application session and start a new Logix Designer application session.

This anomaly first identified in version 31.00.


  

Displayed alarm fields may not update when modified programmatically (1541337)

Alarm behavior functions properly with the programmatically modified value; however, the Alarm List and Alarm Properties dialogs box might display values that existed before the programmatic modification.

Saving the file, uploading tags, and reopening the dialogs updates the Alarm List and Alarm Properties to the current value.

This anomaly first identified in version 32.03.

This anomaly corrected in version 36.00.

Direct Add-on-Profile-to-Device Communication Could Result in Time Out Errors or Communication Routing to the Wrong Device (1927272)

Application notes for Logix Designer v34.00

These are the application notes for Logix Designer version 34.00.

Mitigation for Microsoft DCOM Hardening patch

In response to Microsoft Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) Hardening patch (MS KB5004442), the minimum DCOM authentication level used by Rockwell Automation products was raised to Packet Integrity.

IMPORTANT
Installing this product’s latest version with earlier unpatched versions of other FactoryTalk products or products using Classic OPC DA connections may cause a loss of connectivity due to the difference in DCOM authentication level used. For additional information, see the Knowledgebase Document ID: IN39461 - Microsoft DCOM Hardening Information TOC.

Microsoft releases the DCOM Hardening patch in response to CVE-2021-26414. This patch elevates the minimum DCOM authentication level that is required to establish a DCOM connection. DCOM is used by many Rockwell Automation products and may be affected by the change that is made by the Microsoft patch. For additional information about the affected Rockwell Automation products, see the Knowledgebase Document ID: PN1581 - Product Notification 2022-01-001 - Rockwell Automation products unable to establish proper DCOM connection after installing Microsoft DCOM Hardening patch (MS KB5004442).

Rung comments lost when going online with a controller

When going online with the controller with the Download Project Documentation and Extended Properties option cleared, online edits did not save after making online edits to Ladder Logic routines, saving and copying the project, going offline, and then going online with the copied project. (Lgx00230263, Lgx00230366, Lgx00230369, Product Safety Advisory 2017-10-002)

Security Requirements

To learn about implementing CIP Security, see CIP Security with Rockwell Automation Products (publication SECURE-AT001).

Supported Logix Controllers

While the programming software continues to extend its functionality with each new release, the physical controllers that it supports will vary. New controllers are added, and in some cases, support for existing controllers may be removed. While a specific controller may not be supported by the current release, the side-by-side installation of multiple versions of the software will, in most cases, provide a means to support the older hardware. If migrating from one controller to another, a project created for one controller can be easily converted to another controller using the Controller Properties configuration dialog box within the software.

If opening a project that is configured for a controller that is no longer supported and the older version of software is not installed, the software will provide an appropriate warning and will automatically provide the option to convert the project to one of the controllers supported by the release.

The table provides a breakdown of the various Logix 5000 controllers and the initial or minimum version of Logix Designer application that is required to support the controller.

Launching with Ctrl + Shift does not reset Controller Organizer

One method to restore or reset Workstation Options is to hold Ctrl + Shift, launch the Logix Designer application, and continue to hold Ctrl + Shift until the application is fully launched.

However, when this restore method is used and the Windows User Account Control (UAC) setting is set at a level higher than Never notify, a UAC dialog box sometimes appears containing the following message:

Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?

Clicking Yes on the dialog box while continuing to hold Ctrl + Shift, the Workstation Options are not reset.

To reset Workstation Options, use one of these workarounds:

Default font type and size for Structured Text Editor

Starting with version 31.00 of Logix Designer application, the default font type size for the Structured Text Editor changed from Courier New size 8 to Consolas size 10. Since the Sequential Function Chart (SFC) Action uses structured text to execute assignments and instructions, this change makes the SFC Action larger causing the overlap of the SFC elements in projects converted from version 30.00 and earlier to version 31.00 and later. 

To get the same SFC layout as in v30.00 and earlier:

  1. Select Tools > Options.
  1. In the Workstation Option, select Structured Text Editor > Font/Color.
  2. In Font, choose Courier New.
  3. In Size, choose 10
Converting a project with Function Block Diagram text boxes from version 11.00 of the RSLogix 5000 software to version 21.00 and later

To convert a project with a Function Block Diagram routine with text boxes from version 11.00 of RSLogix 5000 software to version 21.00 and later, use one of these steps:

Resize multiple large routines using Fit to Width command

The Logix Designer application may exceed memory when multiple large routines are opened and resized to fit the full window using the View>Zoom>Fit to Window command. To work around this issue, use the View>Zoom>Fit to Width command to set the zoom of the selected routines so that the entire width of the routine fits within the routine windows. 

Trend server sometimes fails for multiple versions of the Logix Designer application

When versions 30.00 and 31.00 of the Logix Designer application are both installed on the same computer, and trending has never been run in the version 31.00.00 Logix Designer application, trending fails to run in the version 30.00 Logix Designer application. RSLinx Classic is the default communication software for Trend Server, which causes this behavior. After switching between FactoryTalk Linx and RSLinx Classic, the trend will not work for version 30.00. (Lgx00203589)

Add-On Instruction module references

Starting with version 24.00 of the Logix Designer application, modules can be accessed via module references. Because of this, program-scoped tags with the same names as modules ignore those modules in terms of logic references. For version 24.00.00 and later, when attempting to access modules via module reference from within the Logix Designer application, a warning message opens. If converting from a version earlier than version 24.00, the application returns a verification error.

Uninstalling the CodeMeter® kit causes Logix Designer uninstall to fail

If uninstalling the CodeMeter kit, which is installed with the FactoryTalk® Activation Manager, the Logix Designer application fails to uninstall. To restore the CodeMeter kit, uninstall the FactoryTalk Activation Manager and then reinstall it.

SequenceManager not available on Compact GuardLogix 5380, CompactLogix 5380, CompactLogix 5480, ControlLogix 5580, and GuardLogix 5580 controllers

The SequenceManager feature is not available for Compact GuardLogix 5380, CompactLogix 5380, CompactLogix 5480, ControlLogix 5580, and GuardLogix 5580 controllers in this release of the Logix Designer application.

Non-alphanumeric characters in a STRING need an escape carriage

When editing existing standard STRINGs or entering a new STRING, if there is a non-alphanumeric character in the STRING, such as a space, period or apostrophe, add an escape carriage.

Microsoft® .NET Framework 4.6 may cause failure in earlier versions of the Logix Designer application

For installations of version 32.00 of Logix Designer, Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 is installed automatically. However, .NET Framework 4.6 can cause these issues:

Follow one of these steps to work around the issue:
Signatures break for Add-On Instructions from earlier releases

When using version 29.00 or later to open a project from a release earlier than version 29.00, the signature breaks for any Add-On Instruction included in the project. In the same way, when importing an Add-On Instruction from a project created in a release earlier than version 29.00, the signature breaks for that Add-On Instruction. Un-seal and then re-seal each Add-On Instruction to get a new signature.

Kinetix® Encoder Emulator RPI must match the Motion Task update rate

The Requested Packet Interval (RPI) setting for the Kinetix Encoder Emulator must match the Motion Group Base Update period. If the RPI setting and the Motion Group Base Update period do not match, output can fail from the Encoder Emulator.

Large font size cuts off Network Settings and DHCP labels

When the font size in Windows 7 is set to 125%, the labels in the Network Settings and DHCP properties of BOOTP-DHCP Server application are cut off, making them unreadable. They are also dislocated, where they do not match with the proper input fields.

Drive safety instructions Boolean members

Some Boolean members of the AxisSafetyFaults attribute were renamed and some were added to support the drive safety instructions. If a member of the AxisSafetyFaults is used in logic, the logic will not compile until the old axis Boolean attribute is replaced with the new name.

Versions 18.00 and later require updates to Custom Motion Database

When using a Custom RSLogix 5000 Motion Database in RSLogix 5000 software versions 12.00 through 17.00, update the motion database to work with versions 18.00 or later. The following table lists the motion database revisions that are used with these application versions.

Locked routines from earlier releases must be unlocked and re-locked before download

When using version 32.00 to open a project from a release earlier than version 32.00, any routines that are locked in the project will not download to a controller. Before downloading the project, open the project in version 32.00, unlock the routines, and then re-lock them. Download the project with the re-locked routines to the controller.

The Module Info tab within Module Properties will not return module information when utilizing FactoryTalk Linx

Viewing the Module Info tab of any device in the I/O configuration results in the following error:

Internal direct communications error. Call Technical Support.

This error will occur even when the module is connected and successfully communicating with the controller. The error will only occur when utilizing FactoryTalk Linx as the communication software package for Logix Designer.

This is not an anomaly in Logix Designer.

This anomaly in FactoryTalk Linx was addressed in a Patch Update for FactoryTalk Linx. See technote BF28781 for additional details.
