Using the following configuration:

         - RSLogix 5000 Version 18

         - A ControlNet Network is implemented in the project.

         - At least one module use the I/O generic module (The MVI modules use this I/O profile).  The warning indicates that this connection will not be created automatically when running RSNetWorx for ControlNet in an offline manner. If this connection is manually created in RSNetWorx, the resulting XC file can be used to schedule the network. Please reference the Allen Bradley Tech Note #69959 for more information.</?xml:namespace>
