This is a note of caution for any Mac and Linux users who use VI Package Manager (VIPM). I've posted the same message here on the JKI forums.
From the VIPM 2017 release notes:
"Packages built with VIPM 2017 can only be installed on VIPM 2017 or newer. Package built with VIPM 2017 cannot be installed on versions of VIPM 2016 or older."
The problem here is that VIPM 2017 does not exist for Mac or Linux. In fact, version 2014 is the latest available download for those platforms. This means that any new package built with Windows cannot be installed on any non-Windows systems, effectively eliminating VIPM support for Mac and Linux.
If you use VIPM on Mac or Linux, you may want to hold off on upgrading to LabVIEW 2017 until this gets resolved.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Now for linux!
Btw , Jim - the RSS feed in your signature looks like it is about 9 y out of date.
Yes, we want VIPM 2017 for Linux, too! :-)
Thanks for mentioning the signature issue. I've fixed that. Thanks!
