Custom Labview Instrument with Multisim

Hi,

I want to use a custom Labview Instrument (Phasor_Diagram) with Multisim 13.0:

http://www.ni.com/example/30200/en/

I copied Phasor_Diagram.llb and the folder Phasor to C:\Program Files\National Instruments\Circuit Design Suite 13.0\lvinstruments but

I can't find the Phasor Labview Instrument in my Multisim.

What is going wrong? How to get this work?

 

Regards Peter Stolz

Hi Peter,

 

You may have to restart Multisim but it should be in Simulate»Instruments»LabVIEW Instruments.

Hi Peter,

 

Do you see other LV instruments that was installed with Multisim?

 

You should be able to put the .llb and the Phasor folder in the program files, but there is another place, I extracted the zip file to:

C:\Users\Public\Documents\National Instruments\Circuit Design Suite 13.0\LVInstruments

 

if you are using an older OS, it goes to docuement and settings:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\National Instruments\Circuit Design Suite 12.0\LVInstruments

Hi Tien,

 

yes, I see BJT Analyzer, Impedance Meter, Microphone, Speaker, Signal Analyzer, Signal Generator and Straming Signal Generator.

 

I extracted the zip file to: C:\Users\Public\Documents\National Instruments\Circuit Design Suite 13.0\LVInstruments

 

But I can't find the phasor_diagramm instrument in Multisim.

Hi Peter,

 

It looks that phasor instrument was built using an old LabVIEW version, I rebuit it in LabVIEW 2013.

HI Maxics,

 

You can open the instrument .llb you downloaded in LabVIEW Project Manager and then rebuilt it.  Here is a knowledge base how to build a llb file in LabVIEW:

If you have a problem, let me know which instrument.
