I need a latest PI SDK version of 2016 or later on my SIMCA Online server as updated interface.
I performed PI AF client installation but it did not update the PI SDK utility version, how can I do the upgrade to PI SDK?
The PI SDK is not included in the AF Client installation. You should be able to find a standalone PI SDK install kit on our customer portal simply by searching PI SDK.
Thank you Vince, that makes sense.
The latest production release is PI Server 2018 SP2, which was released in April 2019. For many years, we have been strongly discouraging any new development with PI SDK. AF SDK is faster when dealing with PIPoints and PIServers, since it is managed .NET code not weighed down with the heaviness (or clumsiness) of Component Object Model. We understand you may have older apps written in PI SDK. If they currently work, I see no reason to recompile, which lessens the need for the PI SDK update. If you need to frequently change or perform maintenance on these apps, they really should be converted to AF SDK. I would think if they are mission critical to your enterprise, you would take the necessary steps to insure the apps have a longer life.

Hello Rick, thanks for your response, I understood it now. We could use the AF SDK features as our app is compatible with it.
