Issue
How do I retrieve the project from Magelis XBTF that has the *.XDF file extension?

Product Line
Magelis XBTF HMI, XBTL1000 configuration software

Environment
PCMCIA Card from XBTF, XBTL1000 configuration software (in Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 10)

Resolution
The *.XDF files are the compiled project files for the XBTF panel, which can be found on the removeable media on the XBTF's PCMCIA card slot.  This requires a PCMCIA card reader on your PC to read from the card to move the *.XDF files onto your PC.

These files can be imported using XBTL1000 configuration software on your PC with these steps:
  1. From XBTL1000 go to the Transfer menu -> select Import/Export Folder and browse to the folder where the *.XDF files are located.
  2. Once that is complete,  go to the Transfer menu -> select Import -> from Import/Export Folder
  3. It should try to import the compiled project into XBTL1000.  If you get the following error: "this is not an XBT-L1000 file", it means that either:
    (a) The file was created in a newer version of XBTL1000 than the installed version on your PC
    (b) A protocol used in that application is not installed on your XBTL1000 software. - in this case, just install all of them from the installation disc and attempt import again.
    (c) There are missing *.XDF files.
