Profibus in Labview 2011



I recently updated my Labview from 2010 to 2011. And then I tried to install the latest Profibus driver (DF_PROFI_II_LV_1.36.2.zip) which I downloaded from (http://joule.ni.com/nidu/cds/view/p/id/2687/lang/en). Release date: 10-10-2011 


Normally, this addon should be installed at the following path (C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2010\vi.lib\addons). However, I did not find it in the"addons" folder of Labview 2011. Did anyone else ever come to this issue? To solve this issue, should I just copy Comsoft.lib in "addons" folder of 2010 to the one in 2011? Anything else I should do?

I t looks like it detected the LV 2010 version as the current one and did not install anything into 2011. You should be able to copy the files over to the same path mentioned.

Yes, I just copied the one in original LV2010 to the same path under LV2011which seems compatible as now. Share more when I dig deeply.
