Re: How i do i activate the Mathscript RT module in LabVIEW 2010 student ed for OS X?

aiyoung and scottH,

 

Jesse is mistaken. I am unsure if the MathScript installer is included in the bundle listed on the site he mentioned which could explain his confusion but we DO in fact support MathScript RT on OSX for LabVIEW student edition.

I am mistaken, 

 

The Student Version of LabVIEW does in fact support MathScript on both MAC and Windows. It appears after I talked with K Scott that the behavior both of you are seeing is not expected behavior. We are having trouble re-producing the problem but will continue to work with you on this issue. 

 

I am sorry for any confusion this has caused.

1. So what do I do next?
2. What did you do to reproduce the problem? Did you do a clean install of LabVIEW Student 2010 on OS X and then try to install mathscript on top of that?
3. How can I help?

The link is STILL busted. How hard is it to fix a link?
Thanks,

Also, I'll point out that the error message I get is written for the windows version of LabVIEW. I would suggest that this should be logged as a bug and fixed. There is no Help->Activate LabVIEW Components menu option on OS X.

Hi Scott, 

 

One of our product support engineers has been working with another customer who has the same or a similar problem. The customer has agreed to let us access their computer so we can troubleshoot the problem. All of our products go through installation tests before we release them. A basic install of the student edition with mathscript proceeds without problems on our computers, which is why we are having problems reproducing the problem.

A basic install of the student edition with mathscript proceeds without problems on my computer too. The problem only appears when you try to run a VI containing a mathscript block.

 

I think the crux of the issue is that my install says it's the base version and mathscript requires the student or full dev versions.

That is part of the problem, you shouldn't be able to install a base edition on mac. Something is going wrong on your install. 

 

Hey I wanted to check on thing with you. Did you download your version of mathscript from the HUB website or our website? Our website only has 2011 loaded right now.

I bought the Arduino+LabVIEW bundle from Sparkfun.

 

http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10812

 

The CD says: LabVIEW 2010, Service Pack 1. Student Edition Spring 2011
