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.
Hello NI Folks,
I tried to reinstall LabVIEW real time oncemore... but I didnt find any drivers as shown in NI documents.
Any ideas ???
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.
The easy answer is that if you didn't install it, it's not there. (Referring to software on your cRIO)
Can you take a snapshot of what you DO see?
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.
Thanks for your help. I found out the two drivers as mentioned in the document.
Thank you once again
