How and When to Use this Guide
Want to use the Wonderware Productivity Pack, but it is only supported upto InTouch version 8.0. This will allow you to install with unsupported versions.
Note: This is not supported. Though the Productivity Pack may install by following these directions, the controls may not behave as expected.
The installer checks the Windows Registry for the InTouch version. You can manually change the version number in the registry, allowing you to run the installer.
The version is stored in:
32 Bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wonderware\InTouch\Installation
64 Bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Wonderware\InTouch\Installation
The Version value will store the installed version of InTouch. Set this to "8.0" prior to installing the Productivity Pack to get around the version check. Once finished installing, set this back to its original value.
Confirmation of Success
Installer runs without saying you have an incompatible version.
