    Wiki Account Frustration

    Hey, sorry, just saw this. I'll see if i can change SouthPaw to Bryan. The Wiki admin stuff is not as sophisticated as the one here on LAVA and they are not connected either. Let me see what I can do.

    Wiki News!

    After I made this post I decided to bring the LabVIEW Wiki back online. It was not easy and took several days of server upgrades and hacking. The good news is I was able to bring up all the original pages.. The even better news is I talked with @The Q and @hooovahh and we are all on the same page as to how to move forward. @The Q did a great job of stepping forward and trying to fill the void that the LabVIEW Wiki's absence had left. He's agreed to migrate all the new content he created over to the LabVIEW Wiki, from Fandom and continue to develop new articles and content moving forward on the new site. He will also help in moderating the Wiki and will be promoted to Admin rights on the Wiki. His help is much appreciated. The LabVIEW landing page created here on LAVA is awesome but the forums don't lend themselves to static content creation. Instead @hooovahh has agreed to move the old landing page to here. That will be the new home for the landing page. This will become a valuable resource for the community and I hope all of you start pointing new people in that direction. With many editors, it can only get better and better over time. Where do we go from here: Logging in. - The old accounts are still there. If you're a LAVA old-timer, then you can try to login using your LAVA username. If the password doesn't work then reset it. You can also create a new account here. I'm going to announce a day when new accounts can be created. I'm limiting it for now because of all the spam accounts that can be potentially created. There's an issue with the current Captcha system. if you are super-eager to start creating content now and want to help, send me a direct message on LAVA and I can manually create an account right away. - New account creation is now open. Permitted content: - I'm not going to put restrictions on content at the moment. Obvious vandalism or offensive\illegal content will not be tolerated of course. However, the guidelines will be adjusted as time goes on and new content is created. There's just not enough content right now to be overly concerned about this. We need content. Discussions about the Wiki. - Each article page has an associated discussions page where you can discuss issues related to that article. Please use that mechanism (same etiquette as wikipedia). General Wiki issues\questions and high level discussions can be done here. So now, if you need to add content, you can do it yourself. Feedback as always is welcome.

    LabView Memory Full Error

    Stupid question. Why don't you open a file handle once then just keep the file handle open while writing, then close it at the end of the program? When you write to an open file handle, the file pointer stays at the last write point.

    LabVIEW snippet PNGs are being sanitized

    In this last post of the working snippet. can you explain how you added the image/snippet? I can't seem to reproduce your embed process. When I add an image it adds it and the name changes with an appended hash. it also changes the behavior so when you click it, it pops up in a viewer window. However, with your embed, the image retains its name and clicking it does nothing.

    Can someone point me to an online post with a working snippet? On LAVA or elsewhere.

    Have you taken a look at DECAF?

    LabVIEW Not Responding

    That's a great point.

    LabVIEW Not Responding

    I haven't seen this on program stop. However, I have seen it on program start in a clean environment. It's probably not related to your issue, but it's specific to one project only for me. I was in contact with NI and the only way for them to solve this is to send them the whole project.
  13. So the main problem is getting the installer build script to get updated with the correct EXE build. I wonder if there's a way to signal that change to the installer script. I've never seen this issue. However, I usually just programmatically run the installer build script right after the EXE build script and it works every time. Do you have the project open while doing all this?
  14. I think you'll get better support on that over in the NXG support forum.

    TCP-IP Instrument communication with Visa error

    In the LabVIEW options. If you toggle Automatically close VISA sessions, on or off. Does it make a difference?
  16. In current gen? Well, that's a different problem. You could elaborate on that in a separate thread and we could help.

    LabVIEW constant values change

    Yes, I remember when this feature came out. I was very happy about it. Then I foolishly trusted it. Then I discovered a bug in this feature by accident. The auto-mutation failed. So now I was burned again by a feature that I was suppose to trust to solve the original problem. You see why I'm shell-shocked.

    LabVIEW constant values change

    I'm confident you have data to support your argument. However, I've been burned so many times that I cannot keep track of if it was fixed or what version it was fixed or even if it was fixed but is buggy and it works only under certain conditions. I have lost money because of this and don't risk it anymore. Sorry. But the fact that it was an issue for so many years and only addressed in 2015, gives me pause. Again, not doubting your statement, but I don't trust it.
  19. I strongly suggest you don't even touch NXG. LabVIEW 2018 has Python support if that's what you need.

    LabVIEW constant values change

    It's worse than what you show. I see a lot of typedefs there. One issue with your approach is that there is no guarantee your values will remain when you update your typedefs. I have been using LabVIEW long enough to know that you should never trust typedefs on the block digram to keep the values when they get updated. I would change your code right now because it will fail in the future.

    Please check again. I think something got changed in the upgrade, but i think i fixed it now. You can use this forum for testing: https://lavag.org/forum/2-for-testing/

    Transfer Image from cDAQ-9133 Linux RT to cDAQ-9133 WES7

    From NIMax you can format a cRIO.

    RS232 Modbus RTU - LabView 2017 RT

    Reboot the controller and try again. Does it work?

    Transfer Image from cDAQ-9133 Linux RT to cDAQ-9133 WES7

    Creating a crio image is a little different than changing the entire OS stack from Windows to Linux. You can image a crio using the Replication and Deployment utility. I use this all the time. I think you would need to get the installation image NI uses to setup that specific Linux cRIO and some instructions. NI has the image and they can choose to give it to you or not. If they can't provide it due to warranty or licensing issues. Then they should offer a service where you send it in so they can do it for free or even a fee. It's not unreasonable to ask for a service fee since this is not a common request. However, considering the astronomical cost of the hardware, they should do this without question. In the past, when I've requested things from support that are out of the ordinary, they tend to shrug it off. However, once I get a sales rep involved and explain the customer need and criticality of the situation, then they have the power to get support to do anything. NI should be doing this, not you.

    LabVIEW 2018 SP1 Released

    Not sure what's going on but their download speed is a snails pace across the board.
