 Project Converter Operation Procedure
How to operate Project Converter
1. Click the [Start] button and select [All Programs] ([Programs] on the Windows® 2000 menu) -> [Pro-face] -> [GP-Pro EX *.**]. (The version of the software you use will be shown in *.**.)
2. The Project Converter starts up and the [Project Converter] window opens. Select [Project File (*.prw)] in the [Data Type].
To convert a file in the [Pro-Control Editor], select the [Logic File (*.wll)]. To convert a partial program file (*.wlp) or sub-routine program file (*.wlf), you need to save the file in Project File format with GP-PRO/PBIII first.

To convert a project file (*.lte) from the LT Editor, save it as a *.prw file in GP-PRO/PBIII to enable conversion.

To convert GP-PRO/PBIII library files and mark library files, select either [Library File(*.cpw)] or [Mark Library File(*.mrk)].
GP-Pro EX Ver. 2.7 or later is required when converting and importing them into GP-Pro EX.

3. Designate a GP-PRO/PBIII for Windows' project file (*.prw) in [Convert-From].
Click the [Browse] button and select a project file (e.g.: Project system A.prw). Click [Open], and the file will be set in [Convert-From].
4. In [Convert-To], designate a GP-Pro EX's project file (*.prx).
Click the [Browse] button and enter a new [File Name] (e.g.: Product system A.prx). Click [Save], and a new project file will be set to [Convert-To].
If a [Convert-To] file already exists, a message that confirms whether or not to overwrite the file is displayed.

5. Click the [Convert] button to start conversion.
depending on the model you are converting from, the [Convert Destination] dialog box may appear and you can select the type and the model.


When the following dialog box is displayed, you need to set the CF-card output folder.

6. The [Save convert information] dialog box appears. If you click [Save], you can save the conversion information in a text file. To save it, enter a [File name] and click [Save]. If you click [Cancel], you return to the [Project Converter] window without saving the conversion information.

With Project Converter of GP-Pro EX Ver. 2.7 or later, it’s possible to retain conversion information (conversion log) in a CSV file format.
Because differences made at the time of conversion from GP-PRO/PBIII are described in the saved CSV file, the project file (*.prx) after conversion can be checked and modified according to the conversion information.

To know how to import the converted files, refer to the followings.
