FAQ & Troubleshooting

For which Operating Systems is the ICC available?

The Industrial Communication Creator is for Windows, Linux (x86/x64) and macOS available. With a small workaround at least the Command Line Interface can be used on Linux ARM on the Raspberry Pi. See here for details.

Is there an ICC version for the Raspberry Pi?

Unfortunately we do not release the Industrial Communication Creator for the Raspberry Pi, but with a small workaround at least the Command Line Interface can be used. You simply have to:

  1. Install Java on your Raspberry Pi.

  2. Change the last line in the iccCmd.sh from "$(pwd)/jre/bin/java" into "java". So the ICC will use the installed Java version instead of his own.

The ICC uses a binary project file format which is not easy to handle in version control systems like GIT. What can I do?

The ICC is able to use an XML file format for its projects which can be easily used with GIT. In fact, the iccproj files are zipped XML files.

To enable the XML file format, follow these steps:

  1. In the menu click on Window → Preferences. In the following dialog click on „Enable .xml as project file“. Confirm by clicking on „Apply and Close“.

  2. For new projects, append .xml when selecting the file name to use the unzipped XML format.

  3. For existing projects, unzip the iccproj file and rename the ResouceContents to a name of your choice with a file extension of .xml e.g. myproject.xml
    This XML file can now be opened in the ICC.
