Why does Auto Backup not backup the cws file?


I am wondering why CVI does not also backup the *.cws file - is it by design or just an omission?

In case of a crash the source file can be recovered, but the tags (saved in the cws file) will be wrong if at least one line of source code has been inserted/deleted during the session.

...somehow my customer experience felt so much better some years ago Smiley Sad


Actually I just wanted to know if NI would prefer this issue showing up in the CVI bug list or in the CVI wish list - but I guess it will be ignored anyway

Dear Wolfgang,


Somehow your post was overseen. Please, accept my apology.


Addressing your question, this looks like a very good idea for feature to be implemented. Was it your intention to first verify before posting it as part of NI Idea Exchange forum?

Hello n_dakota,

no reason to apologize, I am used to it Smiley Wink

With respect to your question: yes, I wanted to know if NI considers this issue a bug or prefers to see it in the long long (and mostly unprocessed) CVI wish list Smiley Wink

Thanks for uncovering this post! Smiley Happy
