+ Question : Is it necessary to download and install all files in the TIA Portal?
>>> Answer : No! Based on the needs and components of the installer, you select the file to download and install to your computer. For example, to program PLC, just download Step 7 professional is enough. Oh remember to download the file EKB_U.N.L.0.C.K too guys: D.
Question : I just installed TIA V14, does it need to remove V14 to reinstall TIA V15?
>>> Answer: The new version is different from the old version in that there will be new hardware updates. Therefore, if your computer is weak and you are afraid to reinstall the new version, just update HSP (Hardware Support Packages). However, I still recommend installing the latest version because it will fix the errors that the old version encountered.
+ Question : Can TIA V15 open projects of the previous version?
>>> Answer: From TIA V13 SP1 onwards (V14, V14 SP1), you can open directly from TIA V15 (must upgrade project). Previous versions of TIA V13 SP1 (TIA V11,12 …) must be upgraded to V13 SP1 before being opened with TIA V15.1. Please download the TIA V13 SP1 version here.

+ Step 2 : Setup “Simatic_S7-PLCSIM_V15″(1GB)
+ Step 3 : Run File “Sim_EKB_Install_2017_12_24_TIA15”
