converting from NT to Solaris

Hi all,

is there a way to execute a labview application, which was developed on
WinNT, on a Sun (Solaris) machine? For example, does a run-time engine
for Labview applications exists? Or what do I need for executing a
WinNT-Labview application on a Sun?

Bye, Alexander

No this is not possible (well OK it is if you have an emulator but that is a
bad solution)

No there is no run time engine for the SUN.

The only option you have is to get Labview for SUN and the app builder.
Move the VIs to the SUN and build a new application. This of course will
only work if you have the original VIs.


This does bring up an interesting thought. I would put it on the wish list
but I have no fantasy of it coming true.

Create a run time engine for each platfor
m. Have the app builder make the
app in some
sort of binary image that can be run with the run-time engine from ANY
platform.
Now we are talking TRUE platform independence !!

Oh Well.

Let me know if you need help on SUN issues. That is the platform of choice
for me.

Thanks for your answer!
Unfortunately, I suppose a run-time engine for any platform won't be
implemented, before my project ends.
But nonetheless, it would be a very fine option, this platform
independancy.

Actually, there is, but it is attached to the
executable by the appbuilder. It isn't a separate
file yet.

To rephrase what you are asking for, you are either
asking that LV no longer be a compiled language, or
you are asking that the "binary image", be the source
code, and the runtime engine for the platform include
the compiler, like the LV editor does.

So, if you just rename a few things, like distribute
source, and put the LV editor on the machines, then
you have what you wish for.
