A manufacturer tool project can be created from an existing product data file (knxprod/vd*). This is useful in the following cases:
·for viewing the contents of the file
·to use product data converted from ETS 2 or ETS 3 data (vd*)
To create a project from a knxprod file:
·execute the menu command File » New » Project
·select the project template Manufacturer Tool Projects » Convert knxprod/vd file to KNX MT project
·select the knxprod or vd* file to be opened
All XML files from the knxprod file are copied to the project as mtxml files and can be viewed or edited as required. In case of vd* files, the Converter is invoked automatically.
If you want to edit registration-relevant data in the files to create new product data, be sure to change the unique identifiers of the modified data (e.g. the application program version).
