How transfer custom scaling in DAQ assistant when making executables

Go to solution

We have one computer where we make the labVIEW executables then send that out to the computers at each work station. When I make the program on computer A I create custom scaling when first calibrating all my motors. Then when I make the executable it doesn't work on computer B. I then tried just using the program on computer B and it tells me computer B doesn't have custom scaling X. Once I create the custom scaling on computer B the executable works on it. Is there a way to package the custom scaling with my executable.

Generic advice:

  • Don't use the DAQAssistent in executables.
  • Don't use it when distributing executables (or even VIs) to other computers.

Specific advice:

Create the scales within your program. It becomes more easy when you don't use that DAQAssistent, but plain DAQmx functions!

Best regards,

I would recommend using the DAQmx APIs to create the scales within your application (same applies to Tasks create within the application)
