I would like to know if is it possible on new labview8 to compile code asm to hex file and send the file to pic micro pic16f84??.
Actually, I did application on lv7.1 that modified the asm code and later call to System Exec.vi to use mspanwin to compile the file to hex file, and later call to icprog program to send the file hex to pic by serial port with programer JDM. It works but i would like the external program would be invisible to user. Therefore i would like to get all with labview, but i dont know if it is possible compile any language code programming to hex file to send pic, and if it possible send the hex file with labview algorithm on new version...
There is Labview Embedded software to program microcontrollers (http://www.ni.com/labview/embedded) but this software is only for 32-bit processors so there is no way to do that for your pic controller (8 bits).
Unfortunatelly, I think the solution you have done (calling the other programs from labview) is the only one you can use right now.
