  13. I will be there with 2 others. Thanks
  14. Plus, if your cluster had the following: String_Name = "Hello World" Boolean_Name = True [unnamed] = False [unnamed] = True The INI file would get written as: [Cluster_Name] String_Name = "Hello World" Boolean_Name-1 = "TRUE" Unnamed_Variable-1 = "FALSE" Unnamed_Variable-2 = "TRUE" When reading this back in, we would have to assume that "Unnamed_Variable-1" is linked to "Cluster Element 2" and "Unnamed_Variable-2" is linked to "Cluster Element 3". Again this could possibly introduce a bug in your application.
  15. I agree that clusters should not have duplicate or unnamed elements. I'd be more inclined to say the VI should check for duplicate names and throw an error if it finds any. Losing data is something we certainly want to avoid.
  16. For some reason, I'm no longer getting emails about replies to this thread. Not sure sure why, it shows I'm monitoring it. I like the "in recursive call?" terminal option, but in the case of using a path for a section name (or anything that already has a '\' in it) the section name will still end up with double slashes in the config file. Though this is probably needed due to the '\' being the ini file escape character. But at least it would be predictable.
  17. Just to make sure I understand, you are looking to be able to write the INI file by hand that will define the cluster?
  18. http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/tut/p/id/6893 There's a table here that shows 8.2.1 is the earliest version compatible with Vista x32 or x64. I couldn't install 8.6.x on Win7 even messing with the Compatibility settings. I had to install a WinXP Virtual Machine. It works pretty good, but networking to an RT system can be a pain since it has to pass through a virtual network card to get to real one. I have not tried any other hardware.
  19. I've been playing with this a bit and I am able to duplicate your issue. A cluster of clusters as the "key-value" increases the number of extra slashes added to the Section name. However the "Read Key (Variant).vi" still handles reading all the extra slashes correctly. Can you give us a use case where the extra slashes are causing an issue? Do you have a need to read the config file with something other than the "Read Key (Variant).vi"?
  20. It does look interesting. I guess somebody at Viewpoint needs a lesson in marketing. I wonder how it compares to the JKISVN tool?
  21. You should be able to read a devices serial number using DAQmx property nodes without LabVIEW installed. Don't have my laptop right now so I can't verify this. If this is correct, there's no reason to change how you currently doing this. I would write the serial number to a config file key so it can be easily changed if they ever need to change the card. You could even create a utility or routine in your application to let the user select the proper card if the listed serial number isn't found in the system.

  23. This has become somewhat of a tradition over last several NIWeek's. If you haven't been to The Ginger Man, and you enjoy a cold beer or two, this is the place to meet. They have about 100 differnt beers on tap and a nice outdoor seating area where we grab a couple tables. So if you're getting to Austin on Sunday, people usually start showing up around 8:00. Look for us out back. Directions and more info on The Ginger Man
  24. I finally got around to signing up. We've decided to drive down this year, so we will have a vehichle and could take 2 or 3 others.
