SIMATIC is the name of an automation system which was developed by the German company Siemens. The automation system controls machines used for industrial production. This system makes it possible for machines to run automatically. Depending on the needed function of the machine you have to upload the right program on your Simatic unit.

In far, far years Siemens has charged development of protection for the software products to Stop Copy corporation. That has developed protection on the basis of the key files placed on special image to the formatted Yellow diskette - from here and the name.
Thus affirmed, that protection up to that is reliable, that " it will be reliable to preserve your investments ".
Big human thanks experts StopCopy for the done operation in the field of creation of an atmosphere of availability of products of Siemens to broad masses of programmers. It has made program and hardware solutions very popular and demanded worldwide, that has allowed to compete adequately to other manufacturers of automation even in their territory. To take for an example of the USA with and them B&R and General Electric... And accordingly has really saved up the nested investments. In fact iron equally should be bought all from Siemens.
The given program is intended for installation of keys of licenses in case of, when:
There has occurred " a rainy day of the programmer " - the system has flied together with all authorizations, and to work it is necessary, even in remote areas;
When there was a new hot product, and the heads yet does not give money for it.
Simply you wish to study for the general development.
It is developed in connection with release of version ALM 3.0 - the Authorization Licenses Manager after whom, so-called, "fastcopy" long keys of authorization have ceased to work because of their ignoring by this Authorizator.
"Fastcopy" keys could be copied simply in the directory of licenses C: \AX NF ZZ. They used auxiliary "hole" in system of authorization ALM <v3.0 which have been covered with output Step7 v5.4 SP1. 
Also additional coding the keys, therefore new keys have been applied are not visible in ALM v2.2.
New keys are incorrectly displayed in old versions of programs EKB_Rename, EKB_Backup and in EKB_Install <v.2007.03.03 and are not visible in ALM v1 and v2.
I do not call to use a software of Siemens in the mercenary purposes. Programs for the industrial purposes basically should be pawned in estimates of projects and be gained on money of the customer.
Very few people will come in a head to put the customer left PCS7 with the left keys and without the certificate on large production.
And for house usage probably there is nothing worse fuss with license diskettes. There were cases when the worn out firm Yellow license started to be showered for Intourist with miss of keys in far remote places without phone and the Internet.
