Cannot write to a virtual name LABVIEW

I am trying to edit driver session in LABVIEW and when doing this I run into two issues. Firstly I do not find that Virtual Names carry over when exporting and importing the configuration files. Secondly I cannot manually write to virtual names in LABVIEW when accessing the driver session's property nodes. Does anyone have any information on at least why this is happening?

Hey peridom,


Does this also happen when you change the property node to write?

Im not sure what you mean. As you can see in the picture, when you have a property node that is a virtual name, the option to "change to write" is unavailable. If you have a property node with other properties as well, you can change it to write, but it wont change virtual name to write, they remain in the "read" state.

"Because you're not supposed to" would be my guess.
