Connection between WinCC V5

Connection between WinCC V5.0 SPx and S7-PLCSIM V4.0x
How can I access the simulation software S7-PLCSIM from WinCC V5.0 SPx?
To access the simulation of S7-PLCSIM, please follow these steps:
The programs need to be installed in the following order:
1. STEP 7 V 5.x
2. S7-PLCSIM V4.x
3. WinCC V5.0 SPx
WinCC - User defined installation
Users up to SIMATIC WinCC V5.0 SP1 select the components S7Dos and Object
Manager under "Communication".
Figure 1: Userdefined installation - up to SIMATIC WinCC V5.0 SP1
For users of versions starting with SIMATIC WinCC V5.0 SP2 the option S7Dos is
installed automatically. Therefore, this component is not available anymore in
"userdefined installation".
