Noob here, sorry if this is not the forum for this question. We are starting a new team here in Toormina, NSW, Australia and I am coming in cold as a mentor. We are using labView and I have installed from our labView2017 CD as per the instructions here https://forums.ni.com/t5/FIRST-Robotics-Competition/Installing-LabVIEW-for-FRC-2018/ta-p/3737153
Loading a prototype project the team had from the last Sydney event I am finding that all the project dependency VI libraries are missing (They do not exist in the install dir: D:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2017\vi.lib). This seems to indicate that the default DVD install does not include these VIs. Can anyone help with clues to troubleshoot? Extra steps I need to perform to get these standard VIs? How I search for pre-existing solutions, etc Please see attached file.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Great question! It looks like you might need to install the FRC update suite as well which doesn't come on the disc and is distributed via the web.
Here are some instructions.

Glad it worked! It's awesome that you're starting a team too! Best of luck next season.
