2014 Labview Dashboard source

Solved!
Go to solution

In the Getting Started Window, create a new dashboard project. That will start out with the source to the default dashboard.

Unforunately that shows Dashboard Main.vi as not being found

Can you browse to the directory that you created that project in and see if it's just named slightly different?

Nope, It seems everything else is there.

I just created a dashboard project from the Getting Started Window and it worked for me.  This is the prefered way to get Dashboard Main.vi.  If that isn't working, you may have a folder set to read-only, or perhaps the source got deleted.

To answer your question, the source of the Dashboard Project (where the wizard copies it from) lives here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2013\ProjectTemplates\FRC Templates\Dashboard

Hi Doug,

    All the other files are there except dashboard main.vi.    Before I go and reinstall everything (a process of hours),  only find out it isn't there still (I already did it on 2 computers), can you post it for me?

     Thanks!

Hi Jack,

Here is Dashboard Main.vi. I cannot guarantee it will run for you as you could also be missing some other files. You could try to repair the installation rather than uninstall/reinstall by going to the Control Panel>>Add/Remove Software>>National Instruments, selecting the FRC software and choosing repair. This process can sometimes restore missing files from the installation. Please let us know if you have further questions.
