Compare VI function

Where the heck is this function? I used to use it and now I can't seem to find it anywhere. It isn't where the help says.

To quote the LabVIEW help...
"Use the Compare VIs dialog box to graphically compare two VIs. Select Tools>Compare>Compare VIs
to access this dialog box."

I am running LabVIEW 6.0.3 RT version.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Re: Compare VI function

Tom,
I also have the LV 6.0.3. RT and just checked for the Compare VIs function, and it is right where your comments above say it should be (at least on my load of LV). Of course that doesn't help you, but I feel better :smileysurprised:)

If its still not on yours, you may need to get with NI for suggestions.
Sorry for the lack of a quick-fix...good luck anyway, Doug

Re: Compare VI function

Have you tried the search function? With the palette pinned so it will stay open, there is a magnifying glass icon at the top. Click on this. This search even finds my own custom made VIs (in user.lib).

Re: Compare VI function

Rob, hopefully he'll respond, but I think he is looking for the "Compare VIs" tools for source code checks, etc, versus the actual Compare VI Comparison Function used on the Block Diagram.

Re: Compare VI function

Tom,

The Compare VIs feature is part of the Source Code Control that comes with the Labview Professional Development System. If you go to the Tools Menu and there is no Compare choice it is probably because you do not have the PDS. You will need to upgrade in order to get this feature. If you have the PDS and it still isn't showing up please feel free to send us an email so we can resolve the issue.

Thanks.

Re: Compare VI function

Ahhhh...
I only have the full development system but I became used to working with
the PDS on the last job and got used to using the Compare VI function.
Thanks,
