    I just tried this and got the error "Reading C:\Users\Russell\Desktop\New Braunfels\OriginalPLCHMI\OrgAsSLC\OV400 - 2017-07-03.SLC
    Processor 'Bul.1766' is not supported"

    Wondering if I can just take the interim step of changing from the micrologix to one of the other SLC's? any experience on that?

    Good morning @reedrd13,

    I do think that will work - seems like years ago it only supported SLC and PLC files (https://theautomationblog.com/transl...ity-step-step/)

    Which version of the converter/utility/translator are you using?
