TS Version Selector and ActiveX in LV



I need to switch TS versions and do some actions on all installed TS versions.

But it seems that activex still has loaded previous TS version? I have to restart LV and then he loads version that was last set.

Is there an workaround ?

Hi Pawhan,


Since LabVIEW is communicating with the TestStand engine through ActiveX/Com technology, there can only be one active version. See the Version selector help - When LabVIEW loads, it reads from the registry what the active TestStand version is and therefore will need to be relaunched in order to read the new engine reference.

Thanks for the reply,


I found simple workaround:

-set active TS version from main app

-call simple LV exe from main app that will do actions on TS by activex

How can I get ridof popup from TS Version Selector when starting it from console?
