LVCompare not working

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm trying to get LVCompare working (with git) but I'm getting an error when launching lvcompare.exe. To figure out what's going on, I'm manually starting the program from a power shell:

PS C:\Program Files\National Instruments\Shared\LabVIEW Compare> .\LVCompare.exe C:\Users\ThomasGutzler\Desktop\vi1.vi C:\Users\ThomasGutzler\Desktop\vi2.vi -lvpath 'C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2017\LabVIEW.exe'

I noticed that lvcompare writes a log file into the temp folder (LVCompare_64_17.0_ThomasGutzler_cur.txt). This is what it says:

Possible path leak, unable to purge elements of base #0

Something is wrong with NI_LVConfig.lvlib? I tried opening that library and didn't get any errors.

I also have LV2017 32bit and LV2016 32bit installed and tried launching lvcompare like this:

PS C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\Shared\LabVIEW Compare> .\LVCompare.exe C:\Users\ThomasGutzler\Desktop\vi1.vi C:\Users\ThomasGutzler\Desktop\vi2.vi -lvpath 'C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2017\LabVIEW.exe'

and this:

PS C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\Shared\LabVIEW Compare> .\LVCompare.exe C:\Users\ThomasGutzler\Desktop\vi1.vi C:\Users\ThomasGutzler\Desktop\vi2.vi -lvpath 'C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2016\LabVIEW.exe'

with very similar results in LVCompare_32_17.0_ThomasGutzler_cur.txt

What am I doing wrong?

LVCompare_32_17.0_ThomasGutzler_cur.txt

LVCompare_64_17.0_ThomasGutzler_cur.txt

Thats weird...what happens if you run the compare from labview tools menu? Does that work?

Now that you mention that, I can't find it in the tools menu. There is no "Compare" submenu under tools.

I know, I've posted to that thread when it was active, but that was on LV2014 :/

Ah yes I see you now on the other page. Either way, sounds like maybe time for a repair. Or is there a possibility you don't have the appropriate labview version activated?

It's a fresh install and I've activated as "LabVIEW Full Development System". I would have thought that's enough.

Can anyone confirm that this is working for LV2017 any bitness

well that one i cant answer...at this point probably the tech preview for nxg :/

 

Its actually kind of interesting nobody has taken diff on as a vi scripting exercise. merge makes sense -- it seems hard -- but diff seems relatively easy if you consider that the built-in diff doesn't do a ton of semantic filtering on changes.
