I wanted to ask if there is an actually (workable) solution to load one or more VIs, which are created in a newer version than the one I used (cf. https://lavag.org/topic/11502-conversion-new-to-old/ or https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Idea-Exchange/LabVIEW-Version-conversion-tool/idi-p/3167322 or https://forums.ni.com/t5/Version-Conversion/bd-p/VersionConversion ). It's NOT about EXECUTING, it's just about looking at the block diagram or converting it to a previous version. Unfortunately, NI does not still seem to offer a tool for doing so.
At www.labviewmakerhub.com there used to be a REVERT online tool. Unfortunately this is no longer available. In addition, in many cases there will be licensing and privacy barriers to upload any code to "online services". Specifically, I would have the problem that I'm programming a code of interest from github ( https://github.com/show6114/LV-string2hexview ) in 2016, but I have only 2015. Of course, you could always update your own version to never have such problems, on the other hand, not everyone is a version junkie and often there are also license obstacles in the way. So my question in the round: Is there something new to solve such problems? Alternatively, could someone be so nice to convert the code for me? The latter would help me a lot - the former would be very interesting!
