Back to C++

Recommended Posts

After a decade of working mostly with LabVIEW, it looks like I'll be getting back into C++ (Linux environment, mostly).  I've done some C++ before, but I've never been good at it... does anyone have favorite resources, classes, or project lists that a lost LabVIEW programmer can use to come up to speed in C++?

If you are anywhere close to Austin, TX, there is a UT professor that offers a 1-day-per-week-for-three-weeks course that is spectacular. We sent the entire LV team through when we did the cross-over from C to C++ about a decade ago, and we still send new hires through from time to time if they come from a predominantly Java or C# background. Dr. Glenn Downing.

Thanks AQ.  I'm stuck in Colorado, I'm afraid.  It's a good idea, though.  I'll check to see if any local university has a similar program.


My normal process is to skim through a lot of books and find the ones that make sense to my particular mindset.  Starting with Accelerated C++ (http://www.amazon.com/dp/020170353X) and picking a random project to work on.

      I have received a LabVIEW dll and the corresponding header files so that I can send a trigger to a skin stimulation device.

      when I use the loadlibrary command in my Matlab script, I receive these two errors:  "We don't know the Compiler" and "We don't know the ProcessorType architecture"
      Which means while reading the "platdefines.h", the Compiler and the ProcessorType does not match the ones listed in ifs.
      I have set c++ compiler to visual studio 2015 in Matlab. (also tried MinGW). the system I`m using is Windows 10 (tried on 7, too), 64bit.
      I read somewhere that manually defining the ProcessorType and the compiler might solve the issue. But the problem is I Don`t know what they are. (when these two conditions below are not accepted.)
      #elif defined(_MSC_VER) || defined(_NI_VC_)
              #define Compiler        kVisualC
      #elif defined(_M_X64)
              #define ProcessorType    kX64
      How should I find out the ProcessorType and the compiler I have? 
      I`d be EXTREMELY THANKFUL for any solutions you can think of.
      P.S.1 I attached all the headers and the Matlab error.jpg
      P.S.2 The code seems to work fine on manufacturers system with Matlab 2011. so it may be Matlab-related, but I don`t get how since the error is from platdefines header file.

      Good morning. I'm new of labview and I would like to call C++ code from VI for my application.
      I did a
      C++ project, generate DLL and I call it from VI. It's working on my pc but if I make an application for another pc, the application works but the dll is not working. I installed the c++ redistributable on second pc but I had the same problem.
      in particular a message error with "error 42" appears. Can you suggest me some check to fix it ?
      thank you very much for your collaboration
