Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Anyway, to hopefully answer some of your questions, here is a brief description of what I am trying to do with VI logger:
I am currently working with the VI Logger Lite software that was included with a DAQ-PAD 6015 that I recently received. Originally, all that I needed the VI Logger software for was to do some quick data collection of some load cell signals, and export the data runs into a .txt file for later analysis. This worked great, however, we discovered that VI Logger would only allow us the slowest sampling rate of 1Hz. Since the test that we are running is to occur over a period of time of about 2 weeks, at this sampling rate, the amount of run data to be analyzed in the .txt file would be enormous. Instead of having our mechanical engineer have to deal with crunching all of this data, I suggested creating a simple vi in labview that would parse off some of the run data collected by VI logger and save it to a much smaller spreadsheed file.
I developed the VI on my desktop workstation using LabVIEW 7.1, with both VI Logger and NI-DAQmx. I intended to distribute an executable to only one pc in our lab that also has VI Logger lite, as well as NI-DAQmx and the LabVIEW runtime engine, but not the LabVIEW development environment. As I stated in my previous post. I was able to successfully build an executable on my workstation, but when I went to run it, it hang, and I had to terminate the executable from the Windows task manager. This problem occurred on both my workstation, as well as the pc I intended to distribute to. As far as the OS goes, I am currently running WinXP on my workstation, and Win2000 on the lab pc.
I have attached a copy of the VI that I wrote for you to review. Please let me know if you can figure something out asap.
I have taken your VI and built it into an executable using LabVIEW 7.1 and VI Logger 2.0.1 and everything works correctly. Did you get any error messages during the build? The best solution may be to try reinstalling some software, such as VI Logger or LabVIEW. I am attaching the exe that I built - can you run this?
I have three PCs in my lab. One out of three has Labview 7.1 development environment and other two has labview rutime engine. How can I findout which one has development environment?
