FAQ: Why does Archive creation using SIMATIC Manager fail?

Please check whether there are any blank spaces in the component name you wish to archive. If this is the case, there are two options:

  • Remove the blank spaces from the component name.

  • Create a subdirectory in the affected component without blank spaces.
