    Hi, I have installed Codesys V3.5 SP4 and SP7 pbf(Provided by Festo) and it works in a correct way.
    Last week I installed the new version of Codesys V3.5 SP16 and it worked very well but when I was trying to use the oldest versions opening projects (created in this old versions) it caused problems with libraries. When it start, always load the library versions of the Codesys V3.5 SP16 even if I am using SP4 or SP7 and I can´t compile it.

    I see that there is a location where the libraries are stored (C:\ProgramData\CODESYS\Managed Libraries)but I don´t know what I have to do to create a special folder for each versions or which could be the solution to install different versions.

    I hope that somebody could help me, thank you

    Hi, I finally could do it. But now, I have another problem, some library show me the error "No source code available for this object because it is in the compiled library "visuusermgmt, 3.5.7". Do you want to browse for the original library...

      Yeah you can't look at the source code of most libraries. The Oscat Libraries do allow you to look at the source code though. So that sounds totally normal. That is if you're in the library manager and double clicking on something like a DUT/interface etc in that library.

    we have 4 different genuine Codesys versions installed in W10. But custom versions such as Festo or Schneider run into separate and dedicate virtual machines.
