    Studio 5000 downloaded but only FactoryTalk View Studio is available.

    I just began working and on the programming stations there is no Logix Designer, just FactoryTalk View Studio. Is there a way to separately purchase it and install it on its own?

    Good morning @MattMatt9,

    Seems like Rockwell has caused a little confusion here with their launcher...

    For several versions of Studio 5000, it would install FactoryTalk ViewStudio (without the license needed to use it) as well as offer Studio 5000 users the option to launch ViewStudio it from the Studio 5000 Launcher (see pictures attached.)

    In fact, the default option was to launch FactoryTalk ViewStudio (which supports the ViewSE, ViewME, and PanelView Plus products - depending on the ViewStudio license you purchase,) which annoyed a lot of Studio 5000 users, so much so that in later versions I believe Studio 5000 no longer installs (and the launcher no longer defaults to) FactoryTalk ViewStudio.

    That said, I'd recommend opening your Windows Control Panel to check to see if you do have both Studio 5000 and FactoryTalk View installed (if you need both)

    Also, I don't believe there is a bundle of Studio 5000 and FactoryTalk View (unless you have a toolkit,) so yes - both packages are purchased separately.

    You may also notice in my attached pictures that Studio 5000 comes with both Logix Designer (for Compact and ControlLogix) and View Designer (for the PanelView 5000 series.)

    And Studio 5000 here: https://theautomationblog.com/?s=Studio+5000

    Best of luck!
