I recently migrated from TestStand 2012 running on Windows 7 to TestStand 2016 SP1 running on Windows 10. In TestStand 2012, I was able to make an ActiveX call to the Automation Server “zNI TestStand Database Options”. In both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of TestStand 2016 SP1, “zNI TestStand Database Options” Automation Server is not an available option. How do I add “zNI TestStand Database Options” to TestStand 2016 SP1, or is there a replacement Automation Server for TestStand 2016 SP1 that I should call instead? Thank you
Solved! Go to Solution.
Database Options is supported in TestStand 2016; it is just invoked differently. In TestStand 2012, I called Database Options with an ActiveX call. For TestStand 2016, I changed it to a .NET call and it works perfectly.
I figured that out by looking at this file as an example: C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\TestStand 2016\Components\Models\ModelPlugins\NI_DatabaseLogger.seq
Thanks for your comment Christine!. I was able to run my customized model from TS2010. As you explained I copied the .NET calls from the "legacy" model that ships with TS2020. See attached.
