Each configuration in the library has a Version. It is only possible to load configuration files whose version is the same or lower than the one of the software embedded on the autopilot. As shown in the pictures above, colours are the way to show the compatibility: Green means fully compatible, Yellow means migration/PN adaptation and Red means not compatible.


Press the Save button in the right Side Panel, Veronte Configuration - Save button icon , to load the configuration on the autopilot. Otherwise, it will be only loaded to Pipe software.

Check PDI

After Importing PDI files or migrating a configuration to a newer version, Veronte might enter in “SD loaded with error” state, which is a similar state to Maintenance Mode. When clicking on the unit affected it can be seen the following window appearing.
