    One correction. the i386 is really always a 32 bit code resource. LabVIEW for Windows 3.1 which was a 16-bit operating system was itself fully 32-bit using the Watcom 32-bit DOS extender. LabVIEW was compiled using the Watcom C compiler which was the only compiler that could create 32-bit object code to run under Windows 16-bit, by using the DOS extender. Every operating system call was translated from the LabVIEW 32-bit execution environment into the required 16-bit environment and back after the call through the use of the DOS extender. But the LabVIEW generated code and the CINs were fully 32-bit compiled code. While the CINs were in the Watcom REX object file format, and LabVIEW for Windows 32-bit later by default used the standard Windows COFF object format for the CINs resources, it could even under Windows 32-bit still load and use the Watcom generated CINs in REX object file format. The main difference was simply that a REX object file format had a different header than a COFF object file format but the actual compiled object code in there was in both cases simply i386 32-bit object code. Also LabVIEW 2021 or more likely 2022 is very likely going to have an 'mARM' platform too. 😃

    I just made them up! I believe NI used the 'i386' as a FourCC identifier for the Win32 CINs. From my notes: i386 Windows 32-bit POWR PowerPC Mac PWNT PowerPC on Windows POWU PowerPC on Unix M68K Motorola 680xx Mac sprc Sparc on Solaris PA<s><s> PA Risc on HP Unix ux86 Intel x86 on Unix (Linux and Solaris) axwn Alpha on Windows NT axln Alpha on Linux As should be obvious some of these platforms never saw the light of an official release and all the 64-bit variants as well as the vxworks versions never were created at all, as CINs were long considered obsolete before VxWorks was released in 8.2 and the first 64-bit version of LabVIEW was released with LabVIEW 2009 for Windows. There even was some work done for a MIPS code generator at some point. And yes the problem about adding multiple CIN resources for different architectures was that it relied on the 'plat" resource inside the VI. So you only could add one CIN resource per CIN name into a VI, rather than multiple ones. All platforms except the i386 and Alpha, used to be Big Endian. Later ARM came as an additional Little Endian target to the table. Currently only the VxWorks target is still a supported Big Endian platform in LabVIEW.

    Seems reasonable; added issue. https://bitbucket.org/drjdpowell/sqlite-labview/issues/6/add-a-execute-sql-1d-cluster-results Unfortunately, I've just released a new version, but it will go into next version.

    In an attempt to standardize my handling of formatting timestamps as text, I have added functions to "JDP Science Common Utilities" (a VI support package, on the Tools Network). This is used by SQLite Library (version just released) and JSONtext (next release), but they can also be used by themselves (LabVIEW 2013+). Follows RFC3339, and supports local-time offsets.

    I tried VIPM2020. It was buggy for me. I also didn't like the new login "feature" and the notification taskbar malware. So I reverted to VIPM2019.
