  1. How do you address required run time licenses for LabVIEW RT and FPGA on your platforms? Are the run time licenses included or must they be purchased separately? Also I don't see on NI's site where they list a deployment license for either of those products except when coupled with NI hardware, with the exception of RT on the PC (ETS targets running Pharlap). http://www.ni.com/product-documentation/9561/en/
  2. We have used HTML templates as ShaunR mentioned as an effective method of generating reports. One of the nice features of this method is that the customer has the latitude to modify the HTML code as they see fit to configure the page look and feel. We provide a list of "tags" that can be inserted into the HTML that our program just does a direct string replace for the data of interest. If the requirement is the ability to import data into MS Office or other programs for post processing then CSV or tab delimited text seems to be the least problematic. Depending on the level of reporti
  3. While I can't offer a specific solution to your current problem, the issue of integration with Microsoft Office components has been one of those thorns in the side of developers for many years. The problems you are seeing with incompatibilities between versions of Excel are not something that is likely to go away after delivery. Corporate IT departments are continually pushing new patches and versions from Microsoft which will from time to time break your interface. As a general rule I do my absolute best to sway the customer away from direct integration between MS Office tools and the op

  5. I am a little late to the party with this post, but I will second the VMware Fusion 3 environment. I run this on an identical setup to Val and have absolutely no problems. I have played with a couple of the other virtual machine solutions out there but Fusion 3 seems to be the easiest package to deal with.
  6. This is something that I inquired about a few months ago. For the current moment I do not think that there is any way to deploy LVRT to a virtual machine other than the NI Hypervisor running on a PXI chassis. While I suspect that your need would require the determinism of Real Time, my request was more from a debugging aspect. It would be very convenient to have virtual machines set up for my various deployment targets (cRIO, cFP, etc...) and be able to actually test my code on a VM before going on-site to install code upgrades/modifications. I realize that I would not have the determinism o
  7. LabVIEW System Replication Tools Take a look at the following link http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/tut/p/id/3937 The LabVIEW System Replication tools make this much.....much easier. Configure one RT system the way you need it Download an image of the system Upload new image to as many targets as you need I am not sure if the bug has been fixed, however there was a small issue with the built EXE that is included in the ZIP file. It required that the MAC address was the same in order to upload the image. If you run the source code version, you can easily modify this behavior to disregard
  8. This one appears to only apply to the new VxWorks based RT systems (cRIO-9012) The String to Path function does not operate the same as it does for all other platforms Correct Behavior: String in: "calibration\" Path out: "calibration" Behavior under VxWorks String in: "calibration\" Path out: "calibration\" <---- Note the "\" character is still present Depending on your code, it can cause double backslash characters "\\" to be inserted into your build path functions. c:\\calibration\\test
  9. I have just migrated a very large project 1000+ VIs divided over 2 platforms (Windows and RT) up to LV8 due to a showstopper problem in LV7.1 All I have to say is that I wish I had another option. I have experienced similar development system crashes when editing, long latencies when performing operations like editing, saving, opening, etc. (feels like my cursor is perpetually in the hourglass mode as well as the telltale GUI thread starvation indicator (all windows go white while CPU time is at 100%) Unless you had no other choice, pass on LV8 and wait for a more stable release.
  10. I was wanting to poll the group to see if anybody has come up with an elegant, or even a semi-workable way to maintain compatibility with multiple versions of the many NI drivers that various clients may be using. Being that only a single version of any driver can be present on a system can lead to multiple uninstall/reinstall operations on a development system to support a customer who may be running an older version of a specific driver. The situation I am getting at is as follows: Customer A has a number of like systems running code developed in LV6.1 and Fieldpoint 4.0. The system was i
