GetCVIVersionEx

As suggested by Daniel (D-Cubed) an improved version of GetCVIVersion is needed in order to determine the patch level programmatically. Right now, no simple approach exists for an executable to determine if the CVIRTE is a patched version or not. For example, GetCVIVersion returns 1300 both for the patched and the unpatched 2013 release.

 

Thanks.

still not available to distinguish between CVI 2017 and CVI 2017 f1 Smiley Sad

so I see that this 8 years old suggestion is still under consideration, in the meantime the responsible NI employee has retired - and the next patch CVI 2020 f1 still cannot be detected programmatically.

 

 

 

Hello NI.... please... a sign of life that someone is still involved in CVI would be great 😁
