I have a simple VI running on a cFP system. To run in the development configuration, I run the VI under the cFP target. But now I'm trying to build an application executable for the customer. I've created a simple VI (attached) that is supposed to open the front panel of the target VI and run it. But when I run this I get the 1043 error saying the invoke node isn't available: "LabVIEW: The property or method is not supported in this version of LabVIEW.
Method Name: Front Panel:Open"
When I looked this error up, it sounded like a problem with trying to call the invoke node in the run time engine but it should work in the development configuration. But of course, I need it to work in BOTH configurations.
How do I create an exe for the host PC that will pop open the VI on the target and run?
You're seeing this error because this functionality is not available on a real time system. Generally, if you need to monitor a front panel on a real time system you will either need to create a remote front panel as laid out in this KB, or you will need to build a "monitor VI" that will read elements from your cFP system through either a queue or shared variables.
