Hi Jeff-P


I tried it on LabVIEW 2014 SP1 and it still seems the CAR 422317 has not been implemented. (I didnt find it in the buf fix list that you posted as well)

The help documentation for the invoke node still mentioned the lack of support for run-time so I am sure it hasn't been fixed.

Hi Doradorachan


I was looking for more information related with that CAR number (422317), and it’s correct that this CAR number is not resolved yet. For that reason I recommend you that you can use this work around That document is recommended in the CAR 422317 case.

Any updates on this solution. THe problem is I am trying to read an OLE obejct (chart created using NI office toolkit) from EXCEL into LabVIEW. I got it working with the clipboard get image method but it does not work in the built application. the .net solution discussed can only get images from the clipboard but not excel charts. Is the clipboard get image working in the latest labview version.


I have labview 2012.

You can see all the bugs that were fixed in LabVIEW 2015 at the below link, although from my search it looks like this issue hasn't been addressed yet. Your best bet would be to find a new workaround for this case or modify your application in some way to operate with the existing .net solution.
