Labview 2012 and DDE

Solved!
Go to solution

Hello,

 

I am looking for the DDE library @ labview\vi.lib\platform\dde.llb with no success.  It appears that I do not have that library.  Is there any way I can get dde.llb elsewhere?

 

Thank you in advance,

 

-Jason

Hi Jason, 

 

First try to repair your LabVIEW software by going to add/remove devices in the control panel. If you right click on the "national instruments software" and choose "uninstall/change",  you can choose repair option. This process will look for whatever is missing in your LabVIEW and add it. Good luck

@ Edna, I tried repairing but still did not get the dde.llb.  Is it possible that my trial version does not come with it?

 

In any case, before I can purchase full Labview I need to know if my current VI works.  It requires the dde.llb, can someone provide that to me?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

-Jason

Could you attach that library for me so that I can put it in my directory? 

 

Thanks

Jason what LabVIEW version are you using? We first need to make sure that version includes dde library. Thank you!

Hi Jason,

 

I beleive that you can get the library by uninstalling/reinstalling your LabVIEW from either the DVD you got or by downloading it again from our website(link included). Unfortunatly, I can't just post it here for you.

Hi Edna,

 

I figured that the dde library wasnt present in the 64 bit version.  I installed the 32 bit version and the dde library came with that.

 

Thanks for your help.
