How to download with SoMachineBasic > V1.5 a protected application without knowing the password

 With a SoMachineBasic version <1.5  such question “how to download” did/does not exist, because when On line connected to the PLC M221 it’s simply possible to transfert an application configurated with protection “view and download’ without knowing/entering the password  as explained into the help below

2nd Step Online in front of the machine, eg for maintenancy people, download procedure without having the password (after unzip somewhere of the received package)

Note: this procedure seems to be little bit tricky, but there is no other way to download a protected application without knowing the password from the version V1.5SP1  and upper versions
