how to run two programs with one PC and two monitors

Good Morning,

 

I have a requirement to run a parallel loop and update the progress in two monitors with one computer.

 

For ex: its a two test stage, the process and progress of the 1st stage needs to displayed in monitor1 and similarly for 2nd stage to monitor 2 with program running with one computer.Would it be possible to do that.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Parker,

 

yes, it's possible. You also have properties to set windows to specific monitors...

Best regards,

Sure that is no problem. 

 

Look under VI Properties and you will see a tab for "Window Run-Time Position".  You can choose Monitor 1 or 2. 

 

And you can launch parallel loops using VI Server methods and properties.
