How to compare Fieldpoint iak files

I have two Fieldpoint .iak files on my computer.  Is there a way to compare (tell the difference) between the two files? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi tpz,

 

The first issue that you are going to is that .iak files aren't human readable.  To get information out of the files you are going to need to use the FP Get Configuration Info.vi.  I just made an example program and posted it to the community site ( http://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-3881).  The next step is comparing the two arrays of strings that it outputs.  

 

You might be able to use the method described here:

Its for a 1D array, but you could probably modify it.

 

have a great day,
