  1. Yes, this user has already been banned. It seems to be an isolated incident of messages sent through the forums personal message system. If you have notifications on for PMs it will email the message to you.
  2. I'm investigating a project that requires LabVIEW communication with a Beckhoff controller. If there's someone that has time to work with me on this project and has the experience please send me a Personal Message. - Thank You.
  3. Members. I am investigating a recent report from some that they're receiving spam emails from this server. If you have received this type of email, please forward the entire email to support@lavag.org Thanks.
  4. I agree. I can't see this as anything other than a complete PR disaster for them. I don't have any confidence they know what they're doing. It's gonna take a couple years for the dust to settle.
  5. So this was posted on the NI forums: https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Our-Commitment-to-LabVIEW-as-we-Expand-our-Software-Portfolio/td-p/4101878?profile.language=en
  6. I use Parallels. Have been using it for years. They have a one-time price point and also a subscription model. It's the best in my opinion. I use it for professional work. If you are a hobbyist or don't want to spend money, then go for Virtual Box. I've heard some people use it just fine. It's free so you can just try it.
  7. Running LabVIEW 2019f3 I found a potential bug and need your help to determine if it's real or not. Quick search didn't come up anyone reporting it. I have 3 classes. Class1 contains Class2. Class2 contains Class3. Now, if I try to drop Class1 into the private data of Class3, LabVIEW will report an error and prevent this action. Mainly because you will have recursion, which is not allowed. This is all fine and expected. Even if Class1 is inside a cluster or a DVR or any other "wrapper", LabVIEW detects this as recursion and reports an error (broken VI). However, I am able to "br
  8. I flipped a switch. Let me know if anything changes.
  9. I will complete the survey but wanted to add here as well. I use EtherCAT primarily with 3rd party slaves and only use NI hardware\software. I have limited time resources and prefer to stay within one environment, so I choose NI software whenever I can. I just don't have time to learn all the 3rd party tools. Maybe others can help me here. if anything, at least this thread has brought other ECAT experts to the surface, I can DM for help 😉. I have come across a few limitations but I have been able to work around them because I have no choice. One thing that is frustrating is there is no wa
  10. I get an error 7, file missing error when I run the app builder Build.vi provided by NI (visible in the palettes). I've seen this issue a few times with various projects. I'm not sure what causes it, but there's no way to recover from it quickly. The only thing that fixes it, that I've found, is to manually execute a build from the project build spec. This seems to fix the missing cache issue. After a manual build is done, Automated builds using the build.vi work as expected without errors, multiple times.
  11. I don't need or care for the new VIPM browser. How can I stop it from launching all the time and staying resident. I have to keep manually exiting it every time. An option in VIPM to turn it off would make sense. I would like to make my own decisions to use a feature and not have it forced upon me. I have not seen where this is configured.
  12. I've been trying the "save for previous" feature in LabVIEW. It gets stuck in this dialog and LabVIEW just freezes and I have to terminate it. I was down-saving a VI that was part of a class and it called a couple classes as well. So it wasn't just a single VI. Does the "save as" really work? Curious if others have success with this feature.
  13. Can you provide a public link where people can download VIPM 2019? So far I haven't seen one, unless I missed it.
  14. 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.
  15. I know there is a GUI for it, I've seen it. But the marketing for it, does not promote it anywhere. I wish I could quickly point to where that is, but unless it's accessible from the homepage, you lost me. If you take the philosophy that GUIs are not for real programmers, then you will start to align with GPMs design language.
  16. I discussed with @Mark Balla and we figured out a way to get all the old videos that used to be on the Tecnova site up to Youtube. It will take a few days but this is in progress. Probably within a week all the videos should be up. I will update this thread with progress.
  17. I don't have access to those. The only way would be to get @Mark Balla to upload them to youtube. I will ping him.
