LabVIEW LINX Raspberry Pi 3B connects but Install fails

Go to solution

Below is the LINX log which shows it connects but fails to install. Perhaps, as it says, it is looking for an rPi 2B instead of my rPi 3B? Not sure what to do now. I'm using LabVIEW 2023 Q1 with "NI LabVIEW LINX Toolkit" version installed via VIPM. I'm using Win11Pro on my main machine and the latest rPi OS with Desktop on the rPi 3B. I had three other LINX packages installed but uninstalled them but that did not help.


Your thoughts?

With LabVIEW 2021 and later you should not install the Linx Toolkit but rather the Hobbyist Toolkit (and in the according version to your LabVIEW version).

Yay! Thanks! I now can blink an rPi 3B LED (pin 7 = GPIO4, and pin 9 = GND) with 


LabVIEW 2023\vi.lib\MakerHub\LINX\Private\Templates\Raspberry Pi 2 B\RPI2 Main.vi


That should get me started.
