  1. I use XP mode to support my Labview 8.5.1 real-time applications. Everything works fine and I don't have any complaints. You can not have real-time Labview 8.5.1 and anything newer then 2011 on the same machine, unless you use one in a VM.
  2. I'm curious, why are you supporting older versions of the protocol? What is auto negotiation in Websockets?
  3. Wow that is a nice mirror! I've updated the Websocket code and wrapped everything into a class. Also updated the chat client and added in a chat server that echos back what you send. Still struggling with the close handshake and I'm not sure if its 100% yet. WebSocket Chat.zip
  4. Yes, Its similar to NI Ethernet IP toolkit. I currently use NIs toolkit for communicating to SLC5 and Contrologix PLCs. Its well worth the 500 beans. However, if you have to communicate to a Allen-Bradley PLC5 over Ethernet, then NI's EthernetIP toolkit is not going to help you. I posted some code above that can help if your using a PLC5.
  5. If echo.websocket.org is not working. You can also use the above websocket chat client with the following in host: node.remysharp.com:8001 Note that the above websocket server does not echo back the chat. You can use Google Chrome and connect to the Websocket server at: http://html5demos.com/web-socket
  6. I've used the websocket code posted here and updated it with the latest framing and mask. I created a simple websocket chat client that connects to echo.websocket.org. You can open and run "WS Chat Client.vi" in the attached Labview 2010 project. The server will echo back what you send. WebSocketChatClient.zip
  7. While this does apply to the latest draft specification ("hybi-10") of websockets, there is a bug in "websocket handshake string.vi". The MD5 can sometimes contain an ascii line feed. If it did, the "Search and Replace Pattern.vi"would screwup the MD5. This is pretty easy to fix by moving the MD5 after the search and replace. Here an fixed image of the fix.
  8. Russell, To get element number higher than 255 requires messing with the mask byte and understanding the PLC addressing for PLC5. See chapter 13 of the following manual: Allen Bradley DF1 Protocol and Command Set Reference Manual The PLC5 I was communicating to only required reading and writing a few words. I did not have to dive into fully implementing the PLC addressing for my application. Unfortunately, I no longer have a PLC5 here so I can test with. The code I posted uses "word range read" and "word range write" commands, see page 7-34 and 7-35 for more details on those commands. David
  9. It should work, its the old style AB Ethernet protocol. I think the NI-Industrial Communications for EthernetIP is PCCC inside a CIP packet (Ethernet IP). With CIP you would need the correct firmware. All these AB protocols and the darn names are very confusing. I still don't think I have them figured out yet.
  10. Here is some code to communicate to a PLC5 with CSPv4 (Client Server Protocol). This is just basically the DF1 commands wrapped up with a header and placed in a TCP packet. You can refer to the DF1 user manual to see the PCCC commands. The attached example "PLC5 ReadWrite Test.vi" will try to read N21:0 to N21:5 and write to N21:20. Info about the CSPv4 header can be found here. PLC5 CSPv4.zip
  11. Back in the day when I was starting my first real time application, I did run some tests between user events vs queues. The trace execution toolkit was my close friend back in the day. I was worried that user events were a shared resource but it turns out they are fine to use in a RT application especially for triggering. However, there was one major drawback to user events, priority. If I remember correctly, you can not interrupt an event structure with another event structure (i.e. two different event structures). So, a higher priority event could not run until the lower priority event structure was finished. I ended up using single element RT queues and timed structures. But I still use user events quite a bit for sending triggers with data to other low priority threads. User events are very good performance wise in RT applications. David
  12. I already starting messing around with pre and post builds in 2010. Modifying the destination directory in the pre build means messing with projectitem methods with these tags: Bld_localDestDir Destination[0].path Destination[1].path There is a VI that NI made to help with this at: LabVIEW 2010\vi.lib\AppBuilder\GetTargetBuildSpecs.vi I don't have a working example yet but I'm getting closer.
  13. Those absolute paths have been a thorn in my side for quite a while. I'm very glad to hear there is a workaround using the pre and post build events. Can you post an example explaining how this is done?
