KEPServer 5.0 is the next generation of Kepware communications technology. Newer, sleeker, and stronger it represents 12 years of knowledge and know how.
The Server has been re-designed from the ground up to take advantage of new technology and position it to move onto new automation platforms while leveraging legacy functionality.
One of the things that has been done in 5.0 is the ability for the server project to carry project specific settings with it. Additional options for the server are divided between Runtime and Configuration Options.
Please stop the KEPServerEx V4 service and any client applications (both local and remote) that may be connected before proceeding, run _install\KEPServerEx5.exe. This will install the necessary dependencies and launch the KEPServerEx V5 install. After accepting the Licensing Agreement, you will be presented with the following question. Please select “Side by Side”. This will leave V4 installed while also installing V5.
After the install the V5 server should be running in service mode. If not, go to Programs->Kepware->KEPServerEX5->KEPServerEX 5 –> Administration.
Preparing the V5 Server
Please locate the Administrator icon ( ) in the system tray and you’ll see the following menu
2. In the event Start Runtime Service is enabled (server not running), right-click and select “Start Runtime Service”. This will launch the server runtime component.
3. Now right-click and select “Configuration”. This will launch the Configuration console with a GUI very similar to our V4 product.
4. If the server doesn’t automatically load the V4 project you can do so manually by going to File | Open in the Configuration console and select the project file used in KEPServerEx V4 (i.e. M11_Kep_GCBD.opf). You should get the following popup:
Once connectivity has been verified, you will want to license your drivers, otherwise you’ll be running in a 2 hour demo mode.
Right-click on the Administrator utility in the system tray and select License Utility. The following screen will come up.
In the drop down box select “Manage Software Licenses”. You will see the following screen below.
Select the “Manage software license activation between this PC and Kepware (default)”. You will see the following screen below.
In the Activation ID edit box, enter one of the activation ids. Make sure to note which one you used as it can’t be used again on the other PCs.
