trouble installing 8.6 on fieldpoint

Go to solution

Hey Everyone,


I just upgraded a laptop to Labview 8.6 with Real-Time 8.6. For some reason it wont let me install Labview real time 8.6 on our compact fieldpoint device. I reinstalled, twice. Still, when I go to Add/Remove Software and try to install the latest release, it lists RealTime 8.5.1 as the highest available upgrade on the host. Even when I try to do a custom installation, it still lists 8.5.1 as the most recent update. When I go under the my computer > Software tab it lists Realtime 8.6 as installed. 


We have an important test coming and I need help quick.

What model of Fieldpoint are you trying to upgrade?  I'm pretty sure that the 20xx family is not supported on 8.6.

That is correct. The 20xx family is not supported for LabVIEW Real-Time 8.6.

Are there any plans to support this model in future releases? It is sort of rediculous that they would just stop supporting hardware that really isnt that old.

Does not look like it will be supported.
