Wink How to use a General PC as HMI + PLC S7 1200 + TIA v.13


I have S7-1200 and want to use a general PC as HMI with TIA v.13

1) what additional hardware my PC should have? (it already has a TCP/IP Port)

2) I have added a General PC in my configuration in TIA , but it does not let me add some screens for my HMI program. When I add a standard Siemens HMI, TIA lets me to add screens, but with PC it does not allow me to do so. What should I do for using a general PC as HMI and program it with TIA? Is it possible or I should think of another solution?

You need WinCC Advanced for creating the HMI application.
If you have WinCC Advanced in TIA, then you can add a WinCC Advanced Runtime to the PC Station.

On the target PC you need a WinCC Advanced runtime license.

A regular ethernet port is fine.
