Hello NI Folks,
I am working on a real time vision application using cRIO-9082. I have installed Labview Professional 2011 on my host computer (default Installation) and configured my cRIO in MAX. Latest drivers from NI website NI-RIO 12.0.1 were intalled on my cRIO.
I decide to start dumping a small application on my cRIO as suggested in the below document
while going through this document , as shown in step 2, I didnt fount any NI-IMAQ server or NI-IMAQdx RT on my cRIO. I called NI Support and they advised to reinstall vision develeopment module with custom selecting those two drivers .But during installation I didnt find any option to select such drivers related to RT.
Are these drivers for real time vision applications are already included in my NI-RIO 12.0.1 or Do I still need to install seperately?? I dont have ethernet camera at this moment to check whether crio is working or not.In the licence manager I can see LabVIEW RT is installed and activated
Is my cRIO ready for dumping a program and working with vision applications ?
host computer: LabVIEW Professional development system 2011 SP1
Target : cRIO-9082 with NI-RIO 12.0.1
Solved! Go to Solution.

The NI LabVIEW Vision Development Module is a separate module for LabVIEW - it does NOT come bundled with LabVIEW Real-Time nor the NI Compact-RIO drivers. The LabVIEW Real-Time module and the NI Compact-RIO drivers only provide the base functionality to run LabVIEW code on a cRIO. If you want to develop Vision applications on your cRIO-908x controller, the NI LabVIEW Vision Development Module is a required separate module. It would likely be best to contact your sales representative to discuss purchasing this module.

Hi Danny ,
Thank you very much for the reply. I have everything installed on my machine.Labview professional development system with RT ,FPGA, Vison Development module, RIO drivers. The thing is I am not able to find the required drivers as mentioned in step 2 in the below document
I am stuck at this point. I jus want to know whether my cRIO is ready for deploying vision applications.

What I mean to say is , I installed everything on my host PC....
These are the screen shot of the softwares installed on cRIO
These are the list of softwares installed on cRIO. I tried to reinstall softwares again then it is showing the same list of above softwares to re install..... Is there anything missing on host PC . Labview Professional Developers suite with alll toolkits( real time and vision development module also included) is installed.

Yeah, that's what I figured.
You've got the Recommended Software Stack (RSS) installed - you only see mention of "add-ons" when you're using an RSS. The document you specified says you need to perform a custom installation. When you go to install software in MAX, on the VERY FIRST SCREEN (after launching the software installation wizard) you are presented with a number of options - you probably just click on "NI RIO 12.0 - November 2012" by default because it has a gold ribbon next to it. Don't do that. Click on "Custom Software Installation". You will then get a warning saying something like, "Only do this if you know what you're doing" - if you don't get the warning, you know you're not doing it right.
Once you go through, LabVIEW Real-Time and so on will probably already be selected (since you've installed an RSS), but the options you want (namely the Vision components) will then be visible.
