Run time to another PC, associate application to a specific PC

Recommended Posts

Hi to all,

First to all thanks for being able to help and reading this post.

 

I would like to ask two question:

 

1- I have RUN TIME asigned to a PC, but know I would like to change this PC and install the same application to another PC (of course, keeping the same Run Time) Is it possible and how can I do that? because when I put a run time in a PC it is associated with that pc.

 

2- I would like to associate the application to a PC, so if the application run to another PC it can not.

I see some post that associate the application with serial number of PC and serial number of hard disk, is this the best way?

 

Thanks a lot.

Using the application builder you can make an installer that includes all the dependent runtime engines.  What this means is you can create an installer that includes all dependencies for your application.  In most cases this means you can just run this one installer on a fresh copy of Windows, and it will make your application run without error.

Your message isn't clear and so I might be answering a question you aren't asking.  If instead you are asking about LabVIEW licensing, just activate it with the serial you have.  In most cases it works just fine as NI expects people to have to reinstall LabVIEW from time to time and has a limit on activations which is greater than 1.

Hi, first of all thanks a lot for replying.

I have the application with Run time licensing in a specific PC. That PC is brokern now, so I would like to use that Run Time license in another new PC. Is it possible or I have to buy another run time license?

Thanks again.

Yes it should be possible, as far as I know a runtime license is like a seat and can be moved to a different PC if needed. I think you can probably just try and install the runtime on the new PC and it might just work. If the licensing fails you will have to contact NI and they should be able to sort it out for you.

If we are talking the LabVIEW Runtime engine then there is no monetary cost in installing it.  Again make an EXE, make an installer, and install it.  There are a few toolkits that require a cost for a runtime engine like the Vision toolkit but most don't.

If you are mistakenly calling the LabVIEW development environment "Runtime" take Neil's advice.  This does have a monetary cost.

      I am implementing a TCP connection between MyRio(client) and Python(server). The goal is to send data from the server to the client, perform some calculations, and send the result to the server. I need to keep changing the data being sent to the client. I noticed the first data works fine and the result returned to the server, but the client could not read subsequent data. I debugged and was able to detect that the error is coming from the first read function is the "Reading values subvi"  but I don't know how to correct it. How do I go about it?
      I have attached the files below.

      The Threshold Hysteresis VI allows an input (for example, a sensor) to drift out of an inner limit without generating an invalid flag, but if it drifts outside an outer limit it then becomes invalid. For the reverse, when the input crosses back into the outer limit it remains invalid until the value falls inside the inner limit.
      For simplicity, only one input parameter is provided for both the inner & outer limits, and is negated for the lower limit, as generally tolerance limits are equidistant from the nominal.

      Hello I am quite new to labview and I have some questions regarding labview. We have came up with a simulation build in labview as shown in the folder. However, we will be making use of Myrio to connect current and voltage sensors to send the data to labview when labview is running. We are currently having difficulties trying to search if it is possible to send the wave files and the popout messages ( messagebox.vi and Player2Wins.vi) to NI Dashboard for Labview in Ipad by using myrio. Is it possible for myrio to store wave files and the additional VIs and sending these to NI Dashboard for Labview? 
       
      Otherwise, it is possible for Labview to send the entire program.vi, messagebox.vi and Player2Wins.vi to cloud and people are able to see the GUI in program.vi remotely? ( We have found information like Labview web services etc. We hope that people are able to view our GUI and press the " Press start" button as well as closing the popout messages in a website not from our local network). 
       
      I sincerely apologize if what I am asking does not make sense to people who are reading this. I hope that someone will help me with this as it is very difficult for me to do and I need some guidance from people who are familiar with these. Thanks for taking your time to read and your reply.
