A separate utility software for Upconverting and Downconverting VIs

Status: New

Hi, i wanted to suggest the creation of a separate utility software that would convert a VI from any version to any other version. This would save people a lot of time by not waiting to get it converted from their respective threads. Also it would serve for more people to able to reply on the forum(me included since i am using LabVIEW 8.6 and most of the posts contain VIs made in 2009 and 2010 even though most of the time the same functions are avalable in 8.6 😞 ).



PS: Sorry, got no pictures

Instead of an separate utility, maybe NI should offer an automatic cloud version online. This is 2010! 😄


You would go to a special website, submit VIs as a zipped folder in any version and get them back in any other version that you select. You also get a conversion log, listing all incompatibilities and problem encountered.

LabVIEW Champion. It all comes together in GCentral GCentral
What does "Engineering Redefined" mean??

Even better Altenbach. I bet it would be easier to put up too with no need for compatibility with different operating systems and stuff. 🙂
