When I selec the VIBox Probes in VI Package Manager it has a message at the bottom warning of a conflict: "This Package Conflicts with these other packages: saphir_lib_vbx_rsc_prb >= 1.0" I checked and no other Saphir products show up in my Package Manager installed list in.
Solved! Go to Solution.
saphir_lib_vbx_rsc_prb is the former package used internaly at SAPHIR. You, normally, cannot having it installed. Could you please send me a picture of the warning you get ? Anyway, I think you can bypass it and installed ViBox Probes without worrying about this conflict.
Have a great day,
Thanks for looking into this. Let me clarify, the latest ViBox Probes installs through VIPM without any problem, but when I try to add a resizable array I get a small dialog saying "Cannot load custom probe". This is what caused me to take a look at the VIPM property screen for the ViBox - Probes install. I attached both screen shots. The ViBox-Probes version is 220.127.116.11. I have tried to uninstall and re-install the latest version. I have even tried to uninstall the latest version, install the oldest version, re-uninstall the oldest version then re-install the latest. Still have the conflict message in VIPM and cannot insert a resizable array Saphir probe. The other Saphir probes seem to be ok.
the "conflict" message is just a warning. It's displayed to inform you that installing this package will uninstall the packages listed. Not a problem for you.
The "cannot load the custom probe" message is th real issue.
The first think comming to my mind is to ask you if you are trying to use it on a RT target ? Our probes are not compatible with LabVIEW RT.
Hi Oliver, thanks for the response and the clarification. Yes, my project has an RT target in it but the vi I am trying trying to add the resizable array probe to is not on on the RT target but on the "host". Also, I tried to add the same probe to a non-RT vi (not within a project) and I still get the same "cannot load the custom probe" shown in my last post.
Could you please try to open VI XXX_Prb_ResizableArray1D[i32].vi contained in ..\LabVIEW 2013\vi.lib\_probes\SAPHIR\ViBox - Probes\ ?
Is the VI excutable ?
Note that this is the first time I hear about an issue like that, we have to find why you are experiencing this.
The XXX_Prb_ResizableArray1D[i32].vi does open but with a broken arrow. It is missing TimerReferenceHelper.vi. I found and opened that vi in ..\LabVIEW 2013\vi.lib\_probes\SAPHIR\ViBox - Probes\SaphirwwwButton and was able to open it without errors. I then did a mass compile of the C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2013\vi.lib\_probes\SAPHIR\ViBox - Probes folder which resulted in quite a few bad VIs. This is my vi search path: viSearchPath="<topvi>:\*;<vilib>:\*;<userlib>:\*;<instrlib>:\*;C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2013\resource"
You'll find in attachment a probes distribution that is running well on my computer. Please unzip it and replace SAPHIR directory you'll find in ..\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2013\vi.lib\_probes and let me know if it works.
