Open Workspace Tool Step

Go to solution



I'd like to use "Open Workspace Tool Step" ( in a stimulus profile in order to open my custom tool (called Alarm Monitor Tool) created according to this document,


The problem is that I cannot select the main .vi (Alarm included in the 'Alarm Monitor Tool.llb'.

That's a good catch! Hopefully NI will see this and fill in a corrective action request (feel free to contact their support too) so you can at least select something else than a VI in the filters in the file dialog.


An easy workaround (and good practice) is to distribute your custom tool code as 2 pieces:

- The "main" launchable VI

- The support LLB that contains all the needed dependencies for the main to work.


You can apply this to custom workspace objects too.
