Version Migration

Solved!

All great advice guys,  And --- Exactly per the LV_Upgade_Notes.pdf!  

 

@ the OP.  You will need and intermediary version.  Likely, LabVIEW 2014 first (installed with NI Device Drivers 14.0 with patches via Update service)  Then install LabVIEW 2017 and Device Drivers 17.1

You shouldn't need to go to any intermediate versions if you are going from LV 11 to LV17.  Like Bob pointed out, do it in one step.  If you find there are issues, backtrack and try an intermediate step.  But I don't recall any changes so substantial from LV 11 to LV17 that should cause an issue.

 

One thing missing from this thread is this.

KnowledgeBase 3SI6TTG2: How to Upgrade or Revert a VI to a Different Version of LabVIEW

 

It tells what versions can open what.  But looking at it, it needs to be updated to include LV 16 and 17.

No need.  2017 will open VIs written in at least as far back as 8.2.  I have not tried anything older, but I am left to assume 2017 will open LabVIEW 6 VIs.

 

But I did just look at the 2017 upgrade notes.  You will want to find the 2013 upgrade notes as well and those two will tell you of anything to watch out for.

Hi Folks,

 

I copied and pasted...

Pain but it's done. I had a ticket in as well and NI says there isn't a magic button.

Thank you for all the input.

Tim.  There is no version of device drivers that supports 2011 & 2017.    

 

Sorry, 2014 may be needed.  The OP did specifically ask for drivers.  And, that tidbit falls under the privosos in the upgrade notes.  Did you read that closely?

Where did the OP ever talk about drivers?

What kind of magic button are you expecting?

 

Copy and paste seems pretty standard if you are making  backups of your files.

And using Open seems pretty magical to me.

Just make sure you have the latest drivers for 2017.  The mass compile will handle the rest.

I may have confused that thread with this.

 

If drivers are used, the same upgrade PDF points to the same information.  See upgading from 2012 or before.
