There's not much available in terms of interfacing CORBA with LabVIEW. A few years ago I was working with a fellow who was based England who was trying to do it, but he gave up and just had the CORBA stuff running independently. The KB article CORBA Support in LabVIEW basically tells you there is no native support. There's only a few postings regarding this:

Hello smercurio

Well, I don't really know anything about CORBA. The fellow I was working with was doing all the CORBA stuff. I'm not really sure I understand what you're asking. Are you asking how to use COM in LabVIEW? If so, take a look at the examples that ship with LabVIEW (Help -> Find Examples). Look for ActiveX.

Did you eventually have any success using LabVIEW with a CORBA infrastructure?  I'm just beginning to look into doing this myself.  Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
