How to save a file on my computer, not on the pi using LINX / Hobbyist Toolkit



I get this message while trying to deploy my VI to rpi pi using labview LINX.

Deploying Open URL in Default Browser core.viOpen URL in Default Browser core.vi loaded with errors on the target and was closed.

Indeed, I want to create a report, by any means, that is saved on my computer. My VI works fine if I use it on my computer without connecting remote target.

How can I send the report to my computer and not on the remote target?

My goal is only to generate a report or a file or anything that I can save on my computer and not on the pi. Any idea or something that works I would greatly appreciate.

You will need to either send the data to your computer, at which point you would need another program running on your computer to create the report, or you can build the report on the Rpi and send it to the other company.  I believe the second option will be easier.  I would start my getting the report in the Rpi and manually copying it off.

Thank you for your answer.


However, I'm not sure that I'm able to implement it myself. Indeed, I need to gather data via sensors during an extended period of time (dozens of hours), and thus, send reports to my computer regularly so I don't encounter any data loss.


How can I send automatically reports to my computer, is it possible only via LabVIEW ?

Nothing is only possible through LabVIEW.


I am not sure what you are comfortable with so providing a suggested solution is impossible.  I would suggest breaking down the project into smaller tasks and take them on one at a time.


You stated the program works on your computer but you want to offload it to a Rpi.  Can you collect data from the device on the Rpi instead of from your computer?  Depending on the devices that may not be a simple task.


Once you can do that then you need to decide what to do with the data.  So you want to stream it to another location like a MySQL database or do you want to keep it locally.  If you are just worried about storage why not attach more storage to the Rpi and have it write there instead of requiring another computer to be running.  If you need the other computer running to log the data why use the Rpi at all?
