How Can I Dynamically Load And Run Another VI In Parallel To My Main VI?

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi,

This question is supposed to be answered here. 

http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/CB109EC8325252A18625735B0049830B

 

where it points to the example file 

Example Program: Using VI Server to Call SubVIs that Run Parallel and Independently of the Calling V...

 

However, this file is not there at the above link. Would appreciate if someone can share this program with me or any other advise.

 

Thanks,

Pulkit

I am attaching a VI that does this if you provide the path of the VI you want to launch dynamically (LV 8.5).

HTH.

 

PS: if the VI is already opened, it just brings it to the front (you may want that, if not, just remove that case and the corresponding test).

BTW, you may want to try and contact NI and tell them about the dead link. Good luck with that, though...

Hi pulkit_umn,

 

Unfortunately the "Using VI Server to Call SubVIs that Run Parallel and Independently of the Calling VI" is no longer available. It looks like the community example in the KB demonstrates the functionality and the VI from X. shows the idea in a concise manner. A request to remove the broken link has been submitted. Sorry for the inconvenience.
