Unable to perform "FULL" install WinCC OA 3.17.9 under Debian

Post by akcount » Thu Nov 26, 2020 9:16 am

Hello, dear colleagues!

Just downloaded WinCC_OA_3.17_linux_debian_x86_64_P009 and trying to install it into my Debian 10 virtual machine.

earl@debian:~/winccoa$ cat /etc/issue.net
Debian GNU/Linux 10

earl@debian:~/winccoa$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
Release: 10
Codename: buster

earl@debian:~/winccoa$ uname -a
Linux debian 4.19.0-12-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.152-1 (2020-10-18) x86_64 GNU/Linux

First of all, I have installed Codemeter. Thats OK.
Second - I have installed "base" package

root@debian:/home/earl/winccoa# sudo apt install ./WinCC_OA_3.17.9-Base-debian.x86_64.deb

Everything works for now. WinCC OA 3.17 Prject Administrator is opened. I was able to create new project, create new panel, create new internal datapoint from DP type ExampleDP_float. Value is changing from para and from QuickTest under TextField.

But also I need application examples. I need help files. I need S7plus driver. And I am unable to install it all, because of "wincc oa base package is not installes"... Take a look here:

What's wrong? I just installed "base" package! I just created a new project in WinCC OA?
"Base" package already installed.

root@debian:/home/earl/winccoa# sudo apt list wincc*
Listing... Done
wincc_oa_3.17-base/now 3.17.9 amd64 [installed,local]

What actually I do wrong? Thanx in advance!
