Open EZwarePlus and run the Uncompress utility (Tools > Compress/Uncompress). This extracts the *.mtp file and the libra ry files and places them in the Project folder and Library folder , respectively . Note s : 1. Beginning with E ZwarePlus v 2.00, the project file extension was changed to *.emtp. It will still open *.mtp files, but saves them as *.emtp files. 2. For Allen - Bradley Users: If the project has UDTs associated with it, the Data Type files are also compressed and uncompressed along with the project file and library files. Backup the Data Type files if you have already created UDTs with the Structure Editor in EZwarePlus. If the EasyBuilder - 5000 project was created in v4.42 or v4.50, see Technical Note 5088, “Using the New Stru cture Editor” for instructions on exporting the Data Types from the old AB Data Type Editor and importing them into the new Structure Editor.

EZwarePlus is used to progr am Graphic HMI products released by Maple Systems starting mid - 2012. Earlier produc ts were programmed using EZware 5000. EZwarePlus has several additions an d enhancements over EZware 5000, but the progra mming environment is the same. Applications built in E ZwarePlus cannot be converted in EZware5000 . Solution Compress the file created in EZware - 5000 Open the project in EasyBuilder - 5000 and run the Compress utility (Tools > Compress/Uncompress). This creates a new file with the same name as the project but with a *.cmp extension. The compress utility bundles the project file (*.mtp) with the library files that are linked to the project.
