38.1.1 Overview - WinGP

WinGP is an application that can run GP-Pro EX project files on our Industrial Panel Computers (IPC) or PC/AT-compatible machines and communicate with connected devices/PLCs. However, because GP and IPC or PC/AT compatible machines are different types of hardware, there are differences in the functions that IPC or PC/AT compatible machines can use. There are features that fully utilize the extra memory capacity on the IPC or PC/AT compatible machines, and there are applications that have been developed specifically for IPC or PC/AT compatible machines.

To protect the user environment from security threats, we recommend running WinGP with a standard user account in GP-Pro EX Ver.4.09.300 or later.
However, as the following operations require administrator rights, their procedure is different than Ver.4.09.250 and earlier.
