You can obtain a 'standalone' installation of the CODESYS Gateway (V3.5) as follows:
Installing via the standard CODESYS setup
- This is the preferred variant, since in this case the gateway – understandably – 'matches' the CODESYS IDE, in addition to which the gateway is registered automatically as a service. To do this, select only the gateway in the setup during the installation:
- You can see in the services or by the symbol in the task bar whether the gateway is running (if it was installed via CODESYS):
Starting manually from the folder "GatewayPLC"
- Copy the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS\GatewayPLC from an existing CODESYS installation to any desired directory on the computer on which the gateway is to run.
- Create a shortcut to the file GatewayService.exe and add the destination in the properties with the option "-d" (<Path>GatewayPLC\CODESYSControlService.exe -d). The gateway thus starts in debug mode and displays the log outputs. You can also add this shortcut to the Windows start menu.
