Looking for Compact RIO Sample Projects in LV 2018

Solved!
Go to solution
Highlighted

The Compact RIO Sample projects do no show up when I select "Create Project" from the LabView home screen.  I have NI Compact RIO 18, and NI Real-Time 18, and System configuration installed.  I wouldn't think I need the drivers installed.

Then I tried opening them with LV 2017, and the projects show up, but it doesn't link.  Many VIs are missing like Clear Errors.vi, and many NiLVFPGA...vi.  

Do you know what all packages I need installed to open and link the sample projects, specifically:

Re-run the installer for anything newer than CompactRIO drivers 18 such as 18.5: http://www.ni.com/download/compactrio-device-drivers-january-2019/7833/en/

 

You may have run the installers out of order.  If you installed LabVIEW after the drivers, the driver installer will not install the version(s) of LabVIEW that have yet to be installed.

I guess I already had CompactRIO 18.5 installed already.  I uninstalled and reinstalled it, and they didn't show up.

I also don't see the Compact Rio DAQmx project I'm looking for in:

C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2018\ProjectTemplates\Source\cRIO

 

Also looked on the example programs on NI.com.  No luck, can someone post?

From dialog box, clicking "Create Project" I get:

 

cRIO 2018 projects.png

 

Could you be more specific about the example project you are looking for (where did you see it before?  cRIO and DAQmx are two different platforms.

 

DAQmx: http://www.ni.com/data-acquisition/

cRIO: http://www.ni.com/en-us/shop/compactrio.html

 

Also, search from Google is better than NI's even if you are looking for something on NI's website.

I was hoping there was a specific example for using a CompactRIO Chassis which supports DAQmx, I thought I had seen it somewhere.  But this tutorial just starts with a blank project:  http://www.ni.com/tutorial/54403/en/

 

I was able to open all the CRIO sample projects with LabVIEW 2018 32bit.  I should have mentioned, I'm trying to use LabVIEW 2018 64bit.  It seems CompactRIO is still not supported by 64 bit LabVIEW:  http://www.ni.com/download/compactrio-device-drivers-january-2019/7833/en/

But I hopefully, I don't need the extra memory, since I'm distributing the application to the CRIO controllers.

Thanks, Greg
