I'm trying to use Run Labview VI tool in VBAI. I'm using LV2013 SP1 and VBAI 2013. The Run Labview VI step gives me an error saying "this step supports LV2012 or earlier". When I save it for LV12, this time an error comes up saying " The VI was not compiled for the specified remote target or it was not saved with LV12". After I read the forums and help documents, I see this problem can be solved with saving the VI for distribution (LLB).
But when I open the project, it is becoming LV2013 and LLB is building as LV2013. So I'm returning the first step saying "this step supports LV2012.."
How can I build a source distribution as LV12 while using LV13? I couldn't find a solution.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I couldn't understand your suggestion about this problem. Is it possible to compile the VI in a previous version? If it is, how can I do that?
You can either download an 2012 version (ask your local sales engineer because it's an older version), or
"save your VI as" for 2012 and post the zip of exported files to the conversion board. Someone may answer and wrap your files in a 2012 VI+llb ^^

Thank you both. I installed an older version. I think this situation needs to be improved. Also a similar problem is with VBAI which doesn't have an option for saving as previous version.
I believe VBAI 2010 is when we added support for VBAI to recompile the VI for you if it is saved in the same or earlier version and not compiled for the version of LV that VBAI expects. We do not currently support saving VBAI inspections to an earlier version, but you can always add this feature to our Vision Idea Exchange (I'm sure it will get lots of votes:> )
Hope this helps,
I think, compiling option of VBAI doesn't work very good (at least it never worked for me )
On the other hand, I will add saving for previous version to Idea Exchange. I hope, it takes interest of other users.
