    Downloading yesterday the package codesys 3.5 SP16 patch 4 and starting to use immediately, I'm trying to use my PC to simulate a PLC. It seems impossible to Start PLC [Codesys Control Win Systray - x64 (stopped)]. The gateway works but it's no possible to scan network.
    License problem? ... Or something wrong in the installation? Please help me.

    I would check the following:
    1. Is Codemeter up and running? - tasktray - check if patch protection and an empty Softcontainer is available ( in my screenshot there is additional a license usb key connected)
    2. If point 1 is ok - then start Control Win 64 manually by cli:
    c:\Program Files\CODESYS\GatewayPLC\CODESYSControlService.exe -d

    1. if this works but the plc could not start on rightclick in the tasktray -> reinstall/register the service by:
      CODESYSControlService.exe -i
      in rare cases a ServiceControl.exe -i might needed too.

    btw Control Win service start or stop could be done by CLI too:
    net start β€œCODESYS Control Win V3 - x64"
    net stop β€œCODESYS Control Win V3 - x64"

    Thank you for your help.
    The codemeter is running but the screenshot seems different from yours.
    I attach my screenshot.

    With your advice the CODESYS Control Win Systray is running.
    But I have a new problem. Using Factory IO (OPC Client DA/UA) I receive the attached message.
    Can you help me, again.
    Thank you in advance.
