When debugging a LabView apps, keep other LabView Project editable

Will be good when running an application in debug, keep other LabView project enable and editable, so I can continuous to work under other project waiting the debug stop at break point

What is actually happening?

You should be able to have 2 projects open. In one project you acces the 'remote application'.

LabVIEW, programming like it should be!

This is a way to do. I like to run a non compiled VI in a project and in same time working under a other project

Even if you run a VI in one project, you should still be able to edit the second project (assuming that your VIs aren't modal and blocking the entire LV process).


I believe you should even be able to edit VIs which are shared between the projects, because LV loads a copy into memory for each application instance, but that would have to be verified.


Are you saying that this is not working for you?
