How to enable the Front USB port on a HMIDT732 when connected to a HMIG3U ?

The Smart Display units on the HMIGTU Series  for example  -  HMIDT732  are equipped with front USB ports.  In order to use the front USB ports,
this feature must be enabled in the Editor.

This port can be used to 
 - Vijeo Designer project download
-  Vijeo Designer Tool (Runtime Installer, Data Manager) access
-  PLC Communications

To enable the front USB ports for the Premium Box (HMIG3U):

1. In the Target's Hardware properties, define the Front USB Ports on Display properties. Set the USB Port (Host) and Mini USB Port (Device)
    properties to Enabled.  Refer picture as shown.
    USB Port (Host)
    Select this option to enable the Front USB Type A port (host) on the display. If you disable this option, the operator will not be able to access
    the system through the front USB port.
    Mini USB Port (Device)
    Select this option to enable the Front USB mini-B port (device) on the display. If you disable this option, the operator will not be able to access
    the system through the front USB port. 



2. In the Target's General properties, make sure the Preserve Run-Time Data property is not selected. If the property is selected, the target settings
     in build time will overwrite the target machine settings in runtime. 

3. Download the project to the target machine, and start run time.
