When converting from an earlier version of Studio 5000 to V31.00.00, if the earlier version application contains drives or drive peripherals, a fatal error may occur in Studio 5000 Logix Designer®.
– Temporary Workarounds –
Correction requires updating the database files by updating and installing the corrected PowerFlex Drives AOP as described in the Correction section of this document. Until V5.02 is released, you may choose to implement the following temporary workaround.

Failure to do so may result in the fatal errors listed in the Description section above.
Download and install the required AB Drives Connected Components Workbench™ (CCW) Device Database Files. CCW database files may be obtained from the Rockwell Automation Product Compatibility and Download Center (PCDC).
