Canot find target cRIO/ IO in project explorer

Hi, 

 

I cannot find taget hardware cRIO in LabVIEW project explorer. I have installed all necessary software (FPGA, realtime, RIO). I can see the IO's in Distributed Manager but i cannot see it in MAX or Project explorer.

 

Let me knwo if anyone faced this issue and what was the solution?

 

Best,

AJ

There are a lot of troubleshooting steps in this article.

I would first make sure the target shows up in NI MAX and then work in LabVIEW after. If you are using 15.0 RIO drivers or later you can right click remote devices and launch the target discovery wizard which will do most of the above automatically so I would start there. If you are using an earlier version I usually just direct connect the RIO and start it up into safe mode. If you cannot see the device in NI MAX at that point I would change your computer's ip to the 169.254.x.x subnet which usually puts it in contact with the cRIO.

I tried the remote discovery tool, it doesnot show any problem. Btw cRIO was discoverable from beginnng, but the IO or additioanl modules which might be the reason i cannot see target in the project explorer.

 "i cannot see target in the project explorer."

 

Did you try to add the target to your project? You have to add manually first the target to your project, it will not appear there automatically.

Well, thats the thing, i dont have a target option. This is what i find in Labview project explorer:

 

Right Click > New > New.. > Blank VI

 

So there is no option to select target. 

 

Note: I have checked in NI Distributed System Manager, i can see all the module and target hardware.

 

I have FPGA, Realtime Module installed along with NIRIO 15.5 for cRIO 9025, with labview SP1 2015

This what I see after right click in project explorer on "My Computer" (did you install all necessary device drivers?):

Right Click on the PROJECT level, not the "My Computer".  Then you will see a New->Targets and Devices.  This is also assuming you have the correct cRIO drivers installed.
