Installation Prerequisites

Before you install CIMPLICITY v2022, complete the tasks listed below.

Keeping the CimEdit/CimView Global Configuration

Complete this task if global specifications were configured in the CimEdit Global Configuration dialog box. The global configuration can affect navigation, script selections, compatibilty, and so forth.

  1. Locate the the CimView.cfg file located in the ..\<CIMPLICITY Installation>\Data directory.
  2. Move the file to a different location.
  3. When the installation is complete, move the configured file back into the ..\<CIMPLICITY Installation>\Data directory to continue using those settings.

Uninstalling CIMPLICITY

If you are upgrading from an earlier version, the existing CIMPLICITY version must be uninstalled before you install the new version.

To remove the older version:

  1. Open Windows Control Panel and select Programs and Features.
  2. From the list of programs, locate CIMPLICITY, then select the application and select Uninstall.
  3. When the wizard displays the Uninstall Complete window, select Yes, I want to restart my computer now.
  4. Select Finish.
Important: You do not need to uninstall Historian before upgrading from earlier version of CIMPLICITY. Historian is not available with CIMPLICITY install media. You must use Historian's install media if you want to install Historian.

The CIMPLICITY uninstall process attempts to remove components that depend on CIMPLICITY, such as Alarm Cast, CNC, GlobalView, and Tracker.

You should verify that these components were removed when you uninstalled CIMPLICITY. If they were not, you must uninstall them manually.

Note: Ensure that your system is updated with the latest Microsoft updates.
