About this task

Note: If you insert a resource file for a device that has already been mapped, you must restart the network engine. A restart is not required if the resource file is added before the device is mapped. It is best practice to add resource files offline in SCT and then download the engine.

See Resource files for more information about resource files.

To insert resource files:

  2. On the Action menu, select Show Extensions. The Extension Wizard main screen appears.
    Note: The NV Configuration Data file shown in Figure 1 was created automatically when you completed the steps in Adding a LonWorks integration object.
