Labview Executable on the new class of "PC on a Stick"

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Have you see these Windows PCs on sticks??

I would love to know if anyone has tried running Labview Executables on them and if they have ran into success or trouble?  Of high interest to me would be serial communications using serial adaptors.  Im still not sure if this is possible with this class of PCs.

 

cheers

I'd say it depends on how open the OS is.  Can you install drivers for serial devices?  Can you install VISA and other NI tools?  The specs seem to suggest that it would be capable of running LabVIEW built EXEs, just not very system intensive ones.

Yes, from what Ive read I think its a complete PC capable of running drivers and communicating through its USB.    As you say the limitation will be its power but for simple applications it should work as Labview in your pocket!!!

      Hey all,
      (Cross-post from ni.com forums)
      We have a LabVIEW application, which has a LabVIEW-based Installer.  This LabVIEW installer is called from within another Inno installer (since our main Inno installer pulls together multiple components, most of them not LabVIEW).  Whenever this Inno installer ends, it always asks the user to restart their PC, even if the LabVIEW installer was cancelled.
      I narrowed it down, and it's reproducible with only the LabVIEW installer, so it's definitely LabVIEW installer's fault.  According to Inno's help documentation, "if a program executed in the [Run] section queues files to be replaced on the next reboot (by calling MoveFileEx or by modifying wininit.ini), Setup will detect this and prompt the user to restart the computer at the end of installation."  However, as stated above, this dialog is triggered even if the LabVIEW installer was cancelled and wrote no files.
      Now, the above linked documentation refers to a flag I can put in my installer script to ignore this restart dialog, but it's a global flag, and I would like my other installers to still make use of this handy restart dialog if necessary. Unfortunately it seems LabVIEW installers trigger this even if not actually necessary.
      Has anyone seen this before? Any ideas how to make my LabVIEW installer NOT muck around with the MoveFileEx or wininit.ini stuff if/when it's not actually needed?  Attached is a LabVIEW project and Inno Installer script which easily reproduces the problem.  To reproduce:
      Extract the attached .zip Open test.iss in Inno Setup and click the "Run" button Alternately, just run the built installer under "\Output\test_inno_installer_9.99.0.0.exe" Click Next on 'Select Components' dialog Click Install on 'Ready to Install' dialog When LabVIEW installer pops up click Cancel, then yes (you're sure) See the Restart dialog Thanks!

      Hi Friends,
      I am facing issue in labview programming. My vi read csv file in a folder and plot it in waveform graph. Initially i have twenty csv file in that folder, while runnning my vi some more csv files will be added to that folder. The problem is only twenty csv file initially placed got read, later added csv files were not read by labview. 
      Condition: Once my vi starts running, the files will be automatically added to that folder. Because i am running an experiment which stores data in the form of csv file to that folder. How to keep on read the csv files continuosly while my experiments stores series of csv files.

      I'm trying to execute LPR.exe command to print some labels on a printer. However as its normal, problems occur. I could not find answer on any topic conneced with "sytem exec". I already tried all described methods (I think so). That's why I'm asking very kindly for any help.
      When trying to execute or call the LPR.exe from System exec VI, I'm receiving error:
      "'C:\Windows\System32\lpr.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."
      Generally I would like to call function: "lpr -S 192.168.1.5 -P lp C:\test\do_druku.txt" which works from command window without any problem.

      Hi,

      Can I put a vi labview application on a web server on html 5 for exemple?

      if we can do that, it can be done just in local network(with several machines TCP/IP) or can be connected with a web server ?

      Thank you

      Reposting this here in an effort to gain some traction because it's absolutely killing me. 
      I'm trying to build a standalone .exe with a VI that contains a Scilab script using the Scilab gateway. On the actual program I created I get an error message stating that the front panel cannot be loaded on the SubVI that contains the Scilab script node. If I delete the node the program runs fine. 
      I decided to create a very basic VI containing a Scilab script to troubleshoot, and I get the following error: "This VI is not executable, The full development version of Labview is required to fix the errors". I don't understand this at all, since I do have the full development version of labview. Also, the code runs fine as a native VI, and this error is occuring on my development machine, so all required files should already be in the correct locations. Additionally, I've added "ScriptScilab.dll" as an always included source file and it's in the correct folder for the runtime engine. In fact, I've tried it in multiple different locations (app data directory, app root directory, LV2017 root directory, etc...) and still nothing. 
      What am I missing here? .Zip of may sample application attached.
