Here is the screenshot of the dialog box where I was asked. Should I install the newest version of LabView myRIO?
What version of LabVIEW are you running? Do you have FPGA installed for that version of LabVIEW?
You can use MAX to find out the Software your installed Software, both for your Host system and for your myRIO. If you open MAX and fully expand the Software tab for both "My System" and for your myRIO under Remote Systems, and attach a screenshots of the software you have installed, we can better enable us to suggest what you might be missing.
Note that there is no myRIO Software Toolkit for LabVIEW 2020. For this reason, I would recommend that you do myRIO development in an earlier version of LabVIEW, particularly if you want to use the LabVIEW for myRIO environment (not available in LabVIEW 2020).
I have LabView 2017 and LabView myRIO 2014. I installed the software from 2 DVDs that came along with NI-myRIO device.
I assumed when I install everything from the DVDs, that FPGA should be included. And also I have this FPGA interface palette:
Here is the printscreen from the NI MAX, can you help me figure it out?
why don't you use myRIO for LV2017 on all of your systems?
You can download the installation package from NI:
Thank you for your suggestion. I will try to download this and let my university IT helpdesk administrator to install it to my computer (I will do it tomorrow). One more thing, do I have to reinstall the Real Time module if I use this LabView2017? Because last time when I tried to install the Real Time module 2020, I experienced a problem, but I cannot recall what it was.
You definitely should use all the same LabVIEW Versions for Host and Target. I notice you have 64-bit LabVIEW 2017 -- this may or might not work with myRIO.
The cleanest way to proceed, assuming you are not doing LabVIEW work that requires 64-bit memory accesses, would be to uninstall all NI software (meaning LabVIEW 2014, LabVIEW 2017, and any other "bits and pieces"), install LabVIEW 2017 32-bit LabVIEW with the minimum packages and Drivers that you need (you need to install LabVIEW Real-Time, and should install FPGA support), then install the myRIO Software Toolkit for LabVIEW 2017.
Once you've done that, open MAX, open your myRIO, and check that the myRIO software seems to be OK. That might do it.
And, yes, you do have to install the LabVIEW 2017 Real-Time Module. Do not install any LabVIEW 2020 modules -- LabVIEW can be finicky about versions, especially involving recent releases. Your safest installation is "everything with a single Version".
