Not being able to create TDMS file and write to it

Go to solution

I m new to labview and lately i have been trying to code a RT vi which allows me create a TDMS file and write into it. I have seen a couple of examples on web. and this is what i implemented (refer the snippet i attached) after going through them.


Now the problem is, there is no file being created on my desktop. I dont understand what is wrong. I may be missing some simple part. Please help me to figure it out

Hi Rex,


usually "RT targets" are NOT capable of accessing your Windows PC desktop as they are computers of their own…


Write to the RT storage and copy the files created there using FTP to your PC!
