It’s simpler to use, has greater functionality and is cheaper than other similar products. I use it and you should too!

Upgrading & the License Issue:

Go to license.starnet.com/activate, enter the key and HostID of your PLC (located in X-Win32 Help-About).

This creates a new license file. Put it in the X-Win32 program directory making sure it has a .LIC file extension.


Upgrading & the Default Program Issue:

If you have X-Win32 login shortcuts on your desktop, they might not open with the latest version of X-Win32 after you upgrade. To fix this, open a Windows registry editor (e.g. REGEDIT) and go here:


Edit the Default value to reflect the path of the latest installed version of X-Win32. For example,

"C:\Program Files (x86)\StarNet\X-Win32 2014\xwin32.exe" "%1"
