Tech Freeware Viewer for *.ACD files?

Is there any freeware or shareware out there that can open, view and maybe print Control Logix *.acd files?

(Searched the archives, but thought something new might be available.)

Thanks!!

I've never really seen one. And with how protective Allen Bradely is of their software, I'd be willing to bet that there isn't.

I'll look around though. It'd be nice if I could get one too, since I only have RSLogix5000 on one computer.

If you post your file someone will probably convert it to a PDF for you

I think what Rallywagon would like to do, at least, the way I understand it, is be able to review his/her *.ACD Files on a seperate computer, without having to install another copy of RSLogix5000. Like if they had 5000 on one, stationary computer, yet wanted to review the programs from backup files on their portable laptop somewhere else.

Which, I do not believe a program like that exists. I'm sure Allen Bradley wouldn't let it be.

There may be ONE slim possibility, AB offers a demo version of RSL5000 for offline only, this may allow him to view etc files he has. http://www.rockwellautomation.com/ro...5000/demo.html

Based on the release notes it looks like this might do the trick, for 90 days, if the processor in question is running V15 firmware.

Hi,

Sorry to drag a post up from 6 years ago...

I have attached an .ACD file that I would like to have printed in .pdf format - we are converting an older machine with AB drives to Siemens and the electrical engineer needs the ladder printed out.

Is there someone out there that can help?

Thanks, Jeff

Converting ACD

The demo isn't working, or maybe it's because I have a mac. (and I apologize for the inconvenience and bringing up a dead thread) Could someone please convert these files for me.

Those files are probably null or corrupted.

They unzipped with only 12 KB size, and my RSLogix 5000 system would not open them. Nor would 7ZIP, which can usually read the contents of an *.ACD file.
