After a project has been created, it can be deployed (uploaded) to the ComfileHMI hardware via USB.
The project files deployed to the ComfileHMI hardware is stored on the microSD card. Therefore, it is necessary to have a microSD card inserted into the ComfileHMI hardware when the project is deployed.
When the ComfileHMI hardware is connected to the host PC via USB ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center will execute automatically.
Once a successful connection has been established, press the Deploy Project icon.
IMPORTANT: If you encounter connectivity issues with Windows 10 and the ComfileHMI panel PC, please see this blog post for a potential solution.
The following video shows the project executing on the ComfileHMI hardware.
Beginning with firmware v2.79, it is also possible to deploy a project via Ethernet, for those panel PC models that have Ethernet capabilities.
Select Tools–>Deploy Project (Ethernet) or Tools–>Update Firmware (Ethernet) to initiate a deployment.
Or simply press activate the icon from the toolbar.
Projects can be simply copied from one SD card to another saving the hassle of repeatedly connecting the ComfileHMI hardware to the host PC via USB.
