Installation
1.4.1
Installation of the Update
Exit all applications (for example WinCC-RT, MS-Word, etc.) before you start the setup.
Update using download file
If the update is available as a self-extracting download file, then unpack this update only to a PC
on which WinCC V7.2 is installed. If you need this update on a PC without a WinCC installation,
copy the unpacked update to this PC.
Unpack the EXE file to your hard disk and double-click the Setup.exe file.
Disabling WinCC Autostart
If being used, you must disable the "WinCC Autostart" function before the software update.
• Client:
"Start > SIMATIC > WinCC > Autostart"
• Server:
"Start > SIMATIC > WinCC > Autostart" or
"Start > SIMATIC > SIMATIC Net > Set PC station > Applications > Autostart"
After disabling WinCC Autostart, restart the PC.
Performing the installation
The Setup program guides you through the entire installation.
A restart may be necessary following the installation depending on the system configuration.
You can cancel the setup if the "Next" button is not activated during setup and after you have
accepted the licensing conditions. In this case the Update has already been installed on the PC;
it is not necessary to update the installed components.
Re-installation
You will have to install the Update once again if you have done a re-installation from the
supplied DVD.

0H1.4.2 Additional information on the WinCC options
If you want to reinstall options from the supplied DVD at a later time, you will have to install the
Update for these options once again.
Installation of the Update for WinCC/WebNavigator
In order to make the updated version of the plug-ins available to the WebNavigator Client, start
the WinCC Web Configurator on the WebNavigator Server after the Update installation.
Update of the Web Client V6.x via download
If you use the download from the web server for the update installation to a Web Client V6.x,
you must first remove the existing Web Client. If you have not removed the Web Client,
the setup program will display a corresponding message.
WebNavigator Server: Use secure connection via HTTPS
To increase the security of your communication, configure the WebNavigator server so that it
only supports HTTPS connections. You need a digital certificate for your WebNavigator server
to do this. For more information, refer to the Microsoft Support page "How To Set Up an HTTPS
Service in IIS" (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324069).
Avoiding Cross Site Request Forgery with WebNavigator
Cross Site Request Forgery is very similar to the Cross Site Scripting vulnerability.
It also starts with an authenticated user clicking on a malicious link. However, this vulnerability
also works if the user has disabled scripting in his browser.
Siemens recommends:
• Do not interact with other Internet related services while being logged in.
• Log out when WebNavigator is not needed any more.
1.4.3
Uninstallation of the Update
Uninstallation of the Update is not possible.
