  1. What are the popup dialogs you are seeing? Like the normal ones asking for what software options? Or asking to accept eula? I haven't messed with silently doing things since the the package manager got involved, but the NI installers I've been using have needed "/qb /AcceptLicenses yes /r".
  2. The only thing to add to Neil is that the Wait Until Completion should be True if you are going to read the standard output after it is complete.
  3. Negatory, I've been going every other year and NI Week every other year.
  4. Your file doesn't exist, or you typed it wrong. I just did a test where I made a batch file with ping localhost as the only thing in the file then did the same thing you did and it worked. I'd suggest putting an output on your error, and Standard Error to see if it returns anything like file not found. Also you may want to test small with a batch file like dir or ping.
  5. Breaking News: R&D expert at technology company predicts the end of the world within the next year!
  6. I had this discussion with a good friend of mine who is a senior developer in a texted based language. He has 15 years of experience in real world development, has probably 10 developers under him, and he keeps up with all the latest in the tech and software development world. He mentioned to me a few times that in his experience he sees the projects that have many many layers of abstraction, and code hiding behind code, only to find that debugging them is difficult. And even searching for what a function is actually doing leads down many holes of things calling things. Where the intermediate developers make a program that is straight forward, and does what it needs to. His conclusion is that his years of experience of seeing when things work well and when they don't, help guide him how complex or how simple a set of code needs to be. And when he talks about OO he very much is open to the idea that he just doesn't fully get it, but all of his experiences are summarized with "It looks great and it sounds like it solves my problems, but then in practice it falls apart" and I followed it up with a reply I've heard and that was "Well maybe you just don't fully grasp the right way to use it." And his reply was "That's what OO experts tell me." When it comes to LabVIEW I feel like I have a good mix of OO and non-OO code. Having no classes in a large project is probably a bad sign. And having all clusters be a class, is also probably a bad sign. Hardware abstraction, and plugin architectures is a couple places that OO just fits in really well in my mind. Reuse code in general also works well. Everywhere else I'm not apposed to it, but I can see some draw backs.
  7. Oh for pete's sake! I guess AppData is probably a more appropriate place to store this stuff. The source is actually here on LAVA. It is the full installer that I hosted somewhere else because I didn't want to store a large single EXE on LAVA, but the source seemed appropriate enough to host here. Work hasn't pushed Windows 10 on me for my main development machine yet so I haven't tried this in that OS.
  8. If your front panel is broken up into panes (which I think would help you if it was) then you can also set the color of the pane programatically with the Pane Color property.
  9. So I wasn't there but there was a public announcement at GDevCon about a new edition of LabVIEW called Community Edition which is the LabVIEW Professional version (I read that as application builder included), and completely free with no watermarks for non-commercial use. NI hasn't made any post about timelines, or other details yet but I hear those are in the works. This is obviously a huge thing for LabVIEW as any monetary barrier to entry will discourage new developers from experimenting with LabVIEW. And then there is the fact that those that are familiar with LabVIEW, can keep up with the newest version outside of their company, or when they are between jobs.
  10. I sent Michael an email. Not sure where that Contact Us goes but I don't see it.
  11. There is several efforts on getting the Linux RT virtual machine working with a few methods of success. I don't have the spare hardware or time to see if it is possible but I too suspect you can get the Linux RT OS on a desktop. My own concern is there is no support, and potentially the licensing issue.
  12. No you can't do what you are asking. There are a few things you might want to know, but none will totally fix your situation. Starting in LabVIEW 2017 there is a forward compatible runtime engine. Meaning binaries build in LabVIEW 2017 can be ran in the 2018 or newer runtime engine. When you build a EXE there is an option to force it to run in that one version of LabVIEW, or the newest one installed. Then if you wanted to run a new version all you'd need to do is install the new RTE and it would run in that. Obviously that is a relatively new feature and not going to be useful for you now. Also there is the fact that LabVIEW 2009 while not official supported in Windows 10 will most likely run just fine. I've installed LabVIEW 7.1 in Windows 7 and had no issues, other than tracking down old drivers to support it. So you might be able to convince your IT team that the 2009 RTE should be used. Without the source that really is the only way to run that EXE. The binary is compiled for that RTE and can't be recompiled for another target or platform unless you have the source.
  13. So most of my interactions with NI in that capacity are documented somewhere. If I presented at NI Week, it is available online. If I attended NI Week then I have expense reports on it (and I know I attended), if I present at a user group I post my slides after the presentation, if I participate in a beta I'll remember, or even have the beta VM still on my computer. So what I did was when my certification was about a year from expiring I just started adding up all the events and presentations I did. Once I reached 50 points I sent an email to NI saying what I did and when and how I was up to 50. They emailed back within a couple days saying I was then certified for another 4 years. The one thing you might have a hard time with is remembering what user groups you attended if you aren't always a regular.
  14. It might also be possible to load a GIF into a .Net PictureBox. I have some demo code for this but for some reason I get a .Net exception but others online have said it is possible.
  15. I had some issue with a bad stick of RAM in my computer that made the installer not work in unexpected ways and I got a similar error too.
