Does anyone know of a web based tool that I can use to convert a LabView 7.1 file to a 7.0 file?

That VI won't convert to 6.1 or 6.0 because it uses DAQmx which is only available in LabVIEW 7.0 or higher.

Try this VI example. It was written in LabVIEW 5.1 so you'll be able to open it directly in 6.0.

Using the Abort button to stop your VI is like using a tree to stop your car. It works, but there may be consequences.

I have Lv6.0 and Lv7.0 30 day trial. I have a Vi attached that is in LV7.0. Can you changed it to LV6.0? Someone mentioned that one can save a VI in LV7.1. In LV7.1 can save in LV7.0. Open in LV7.0 and save as in LV6.1. Open in LV6.1 and save as in LV6.0?

Here it is. I actually made a few changes to point out a few things to you.

I got rid of the property nodes and wired directly. You should never use a property node or local variable just to avoid running a wire. Property nodes run slower that a wire, cause the execution engine to switch to the user interface thread and create copies of data in memory. Local variables are better, as they just cause an extra copy of the data in memory, but always run a wire when you can. There's one local variable in the modified version beacuse you can't write to the LED from more than one place, so it's needed.

This is correct. It would be nice if they could include the capability to save back a couple versions.

Hi,

Can you please change the attached file in LV7.0 to LV6.0. I have LV7.0(30 Day trial) and LV6.0. I understand that I need LV6.1 to convert from LV7.0 to LV6.0. Where can I get LV6.1?

Since you have 7.0 and can presumably view the VI, can't you simply recreate it in 6.0? At some point, you have to learn how to program and part of that is learning where the functions are on the palettes. This is a perfect opportunity to learn a little since you have a VI that works.

I don't think you can still buy 6.1 but why wouldn't you just upgrade to the latest version?
