If you are looking for the latest or older versions of RobotWare, they are available via RobotStudio -> Add-ins -> RobotApps -> Filter for RobotWare -> Choose the version in the drop-down menu to the right.

    Hi dear, I need RobotWare 5.14 but i don't find it RobotApps
  • Hello,

    If the one you are looking for isn't available then you should use the closest version above the one you're looking for.

    I need to install version 5.16. Ive got it downloaded and unzipped. I opened the robotware 5.16 folder and ran Setup.exe. I get an installation completed message. When I open up Robostudio and create a new station, I do not see 5.16 under the robotware section in add-ins. What am I missing here??

    You should add it from the Add-Ins tab

    For RW5, check "Options"- "Files And folders" ->"Mediapool for RobotWare 5.X". 

    I'm having trouble getting my RW 5.16 working aswell.

    You can't "add" it from the drop down. It is Download only.

    So after you installed 5.16 it will likely have installed RW 5.16 in C;\/Program files(x86)/ABB Industrial IT/Robotics IT/Mediapool.  You can copy or cut that folder and move it to C:/Users/"your user name here"/AppData/Local/ABB Industrial IT/Robotics IT/Robotware/
    It will then be available to use the system builder to update your system's RW to 5.16

    How would I find my Robotware key?

    System builder should show it under "Control module".

    If, IF, you have a backup you can use an XML viewer to checkout system.xml (I use a web browser) in the backups root directory, or drill down to the BACKINFO folder and open the keystr.txt file.

    I used to use the keystr.txt file until I noticed the system.xml file has the keystrings as well as the options, and sub-options listed in a coherent (to me anyway) structure.
