Could there be independent VI paths for different versions of LabVIEW?

When jumping between different versions of LabVIEW (6.1, 7.1, 8.5) it is annoying that the current path for one becomes the current path for the other. 
If I am working with LV 7.1 in a folder dedicated to 7.1 VI's, and then open LV 8.5, I don't want 8.5 to go to that 7.1 folder by default.  Alternately. if I was working in LV 8.5, closed it out, and then I click on a 7.1 VI, I don't want it to open in LV 8.5. 
I've tried changing the path options in each version of LabVIEW, but that doesn't seem to help.  Is there any way of isolating these folder paths from one another?  One of our newer LV guys accidently opened some 7.1 code in 8.5.1 and then saved it.  Luckily, I had archived code to return to, but it could have been a disaster.
Thanks for any ideas,

You're actually asking two different questions.
The first question has to do with which version of LabVIEW gets launched when you double-click a file. This is an operating system thing. The one that gets launched is the last one that got used. (Your first question will be: can this be changed? Answer: Change the operating system. Or, play around with the registry each time you quit out LabVIEW.)
The second question has to do with search paths. These are independent. However, a VI will contain information about its subVIs in terms of where to find them. This is not a function of LabVIEW, as it is a function of the VI. Thus, it will make no difference which version of LabVIEW you use to open the VI. You can, if you wish, modify the search paths that LabVIEW uses to find VIs for each version of LabVIEW from the Tools->Options menu. However, this will not eliminate the problem, and your best bet is to keep those backups frequent.

  • Is there a substitute tool path for "Image Adjustments Variations-" in Photoshop CS6 Standard Addition?

    Is there a substitute tool path for "Image>Adjustments>Variations…" in Photoshop CS6 Standard Addition that brings similar results?  I was used to using Image>Adjustments>Variations… in Photoshop CS4 Standard Standard Addition quite often. I upgraded to Photoshop CS6 Standard Addition to get the 64bit memory architecture compatibility on my Macbook Pro, booted in Mountain Lion.  I see now that Photoshop CS6 Standard Addition has the "Image>Adjustments>Variations…" tool path removed.
    I don't have Photoshop CS6 Extended, which has the all new Image>Adjustments>Variations… tool path.  I only have Photoshop CS6 Standard Addition so, if anyone can share with me a substitute tool set that can give me similar results to using the old "Image>Adjustments>Variations…,"  I would appreciate it.

    Thanks, R_Kelly.
    You helped me to start exploring other tools in the Image>Adjustments Menu.  "Image>Adjustments>Color Balance…" seemed to help me get the results that "Image>Adjustments>Variations…" used to deliver.  "Image>Adjustments>Photo Filter>Warming Filter (85)" also got me to where I wanted to be in desired adjustments.  I used to get the results I wanted in brightness, contrast, mid-tone adjustment, and color balance buy using just Curves, Variations, and Hue/Saturation.  Now I'll use "Color Balance…" and "Photo Filter>Warming Filter (85)" along with Curves, and Hue/Saturation.  I also have learned to use "Levels" some more to get the same effect as Adjustments>Variations…"  I always thought there were more technically precise adjustment tools to get the same effect as "Image>Adjustments>Variations…"  Adobe dropping Variations in Photoshop CS6 Mac version forced me to learn better image adjustment approaches for pre press color correction and image warming.  I feel confident now to make Photoshop CS6 my prime-time work tool and move the Photoshop CS4 launch icon off of my Mac OS app Dock.  Thanks again, R_Kelly.

  • Is there a way to programmatically tell what version of LabVIEW a VI is compiled in?

    Is there a way to tell programmatically what version of LabVIEW a VI is compiled in?
    LabVIEW seems to know.  If you click on "List Unsaved Changes", it (sometimes?) tells you the version of LabVIEW that the VI is already saved under (i.e., 8.0 instead of 8.0.1).  So if LabVIEW knows, maybe they've provided a way for us lower-echelon folks (i.e., customers) to know too, eh?
    Is there a way to get this from, say, VI Properties (i.e., Property Node gets passed a ref to a VI & I select the right property name)?  I couldn't find any property name that has "version" or anything like that, but maybe what I'm looking for is using terms that are so different than what I'm expecting that I just can't tell.
    Or by some other method?  (I gvimmed a few .vi files, and see some stuff that looks like I *could* get the version by parsing/searching the file itself, but parsing the binary might give pretty unreliable results.)

    Just dro a proerty node on the diagram and select property: "Application...Version number" and display the resulting string output.

  • How to install Spectral Measurements and Modulation Toolkits for multiple versions of Labview

    I installed NI-RFSG, NI-RFSA, the Spectral Measurements Toolkit, and the Modulation Toolkit.  I have both LabVIEW 7.1 and 8.0 installed on my system.  I developed an application in LV 8.0 and now I need to revert it to LV 7.1.  The problem I am having is that add-on toolkits seem to only have been installed for LV 8.0 because there are several missing VIs and controls when I try to open the LV 7.1 version.  I tried re-installing the toolkits, but this is not fixing the problem.  How can I get the installer to install the toolkits for both versions of LabVIEW?
    Thanks for your help,
    Go to Solution.

    Hello Cherie,
    it's a know issue. You can read it in the modulation toolkit readme :
    Two Versions of LabVIEW Installed
    The installer supports installation of the Modulation Toolkit into a single
    version of LabVIEW; installation of the Toolkit into multiple separate
    installations of LabVIEW (for instance LabVIEW 7.0 and LabVIEW 7.1 installed
    on the same PC and in separate directories) is not supported or recommended.
    An unsupported means of doing so though involves manually copying files from
    one LabVIEW installation to another. To do so, you can install the
    Modulation Toolkit to the home directory of one LabVIEW installation, and
    then manually copy the installed files to the other LabVIEW installation.
    The following list includes pertinent directories and files. Copy all files
    from these directories, including any subdirectories, using the equivalent
    relative paths to the LabVIEW home directory for the target.
    <LabVIEW Home>\vi.lib\AddOns\Modulation\*.*
    <LabVIEW Home>\vi.lib\AddOns\NISML\*.*
    <LabVIEW Home>\examples\Modulation\*.*
    <LabVIEW Home>\resource\objmgr\NIMTAttribs.rc
    <LabVIEW Home>\resource\objmgr\NIMTAttribs.rch
    <LabVIEW Home>\help\lvmod.txt
    <LabVIEW Home>\help\lvmod.chm
    <LabVIEW Home>\help\lvdmt.txt
    <LabVIEW Home>\help\lvdmt.chm
    Note that this listing does not include all installed files. Also, copying
    files in this manner is not equivalent to a full installation into the
    alternative version of LabVIEW. Most notably error text unique to the
    Modulation Toolkit will not be updated and the Example Finder listings will
    not show the Modulation Toolkit examples.

  • Changing File path for different TIFF files in a For loop

    Hi dear users:
    I am using "IMAQ write TIFF" that basically writes a TIFF file to a specified file path. However, I would like to CHANGE the file path for each TIFF file i save in a for loop. The reason for this is that the File path has to include the file name and I do not want to write over the same file name all the time in a for loop. What I would like to have are sequential TIFF images. So if the file name would be "Image", I would like the result to be Image0, Image1, Image2 and so forth when I run my For loop. Can anyone help me with this?

    Use the "Format Into String" and the "Build Path" functions:

  • Robohelp - TFS Mapping issue for different versions

    I'm using Adobe Robohelp 9 with Team Foundation Server 2012 on Windows 7 -  64 bit. I've also installed Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012 MSSCCI Provider. I've mapped all the project folders on my machine. We create HTML help (.chm) for our application.
    I have different versions for each module of our entire product on Team Foundation Server 2012 (As we have multiple modules in our product), for example x+1, x+2, x+3 and so on.
    Each module has different Robohelp projects for every version/branch. This means, if the Online help for any module from any version is changed, we update it in the respective version of the Online help project.
    When we move on to the next version, due to binary files, the next version contains the same path and properties of previous version. We need to have different project for single module for the next version. For this, I have changed the TFS project path of every .xpj project for every version. For example, if I'm working on version x+2, then I've changed the TFS project path from x+1 to x+2 manually on x+2 version/branch and then started working on it.
    As these Robohelp projects (for each module) are mapped to my local folder on C drive, it shows a single workspace mapped with same path on my machine. This should be the ideal condition for my all projects as follows:
    But sometimes when I try to update any file from version x+2 and then check-in my changes, the changes are getting checked-in to the previous version, i.e. x+1. And if I see the workspace of the x+1 version, it shows one more wrong workspace added below the correct one. This new workspace contains the Source control folder path of x+1 version and the Local folder path of x+2 version. That means, my robohelp project folder of x+2 version from my local drive is getting mapped to TFS folder of version x+1. That is why all the changes done in Robohelp project files from x+2 version are going in to x+1 version.
    The strange here is when I try to check-in my changes in x+2, it shows the correct path of x+2 version. But they all go to x+1 version, which should not happen.
    If anyone can help me in this problem, it would be a great help!
    Thanks in advance and waiting for solution,

    So, if I understand correctly, you create a duplicate of the project and
    check that in on a different location in TFS. That is the way to go.
    My guess is that the XPJ still references the old version's path. Try
    checking out the XPJ with TFS and open in with notepad. Search for
    'vc::cookie'. Check that the path there points to the correct path of
    the project in TFS. It probably still references the old path and so
    RoboHelp will check it in at the old path.
    Kind regards,

  • Is there any upcoming software updates for the version 10.5.8? Also how do I backup my mac?

    I really want to update my mac to the new version of Snow Leopard or Lion but to my understanding I must buy the disks to update it. However I feel like buying a macbook pro to my replace my mid-2009 white macbook, once I graduate so I could use it for college (which is 2 years from now and I'm saving up for it).
    Also how do I backup my mac (hardrive)? I'm quite lost. I'm told that I must use Time Machine, but how? Do I use a CD to back up? Some external drive and if yes where could I buy one?
    P.S. I'm a newbie with tech stuff. I'm no genius with it so I suggest to take it slow with me. PLUS there's no Apple Store here to help me out.
    My quetions in a nutshell:
    1) Upcoming software updates? *secretly wishes they were FREE*
    2) Backing up my hardrive?
    My Mac
      - Version 10.5.8 with a 2.13 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

    The 2.13Ghz MacBook is a Mid 2009 model 5,2 e-13-mid-2009-nvidia-specs.html
    There will be no updates for 10.5. it's been out of production for 3 years. You can order a Snow Leopard 10.6 install disk for $29 as long as you have at least 1gb of RAM and 5gb of free space on your hard drive.
    You can upgrade from 10.5 to 10.6 with no problems. Any program that runs under 10.5 should run under10.6. See this list for compatibility with 10.6:  You might have to upgrade some drivers for printers, etc.... And you will have to install Rosetta if you have any third party Power PC applications 
    To upgrade your iLife and iWork. If you only want iPhoto or other single apps from iLife '11 you can get them from the App Store after you've upgraded to 10.6.6. iPhoto, iMovie or Garage Band for $15 each and Pages, Keynote or Numbers from iWork '09 for $20 each.
    You can upgrade from 10.4 to 10.6 with no problems. Any program that runs under 10.4 should run under10.6. See this list for compatibility with 10.6:  You might have to upgrade some drivers for printers, etc.... And you will have to install Rosetta if you have any third party Power PC applications 
    Once you are at 10.6.8 you can buy Lion for $29 from the App Store. Lion will require at least 2gb of RAM but really needs 4gb to run smoothly. As for third party programs see this list for compatibility with 10.7 Also Lion doesn't run any Power PC programs. To see if you have any Power PC programs go to the Apple in the upper left corner and select About This Mac, then click on More Info. When System Profiler comes up select Applications under Software. Then look under Kind to see if any of your applications are listed as Power PC. Universal and Intel will run under Lion.
    Before Mac switched to Intel processors they used Power PC processors from 1994 to 2005. Power PC 601 through 604, G3, G4 and G5. Applications written for the Power PC processors need the application called Rosetta to run on Intel processors. This was part of the Operating System in 10.4 and 10.5 but was an optional install in 10.6. With 10.7 Lion Apple dropped all support for Power PC applications.

  • How can I distribute an application using Reprot generation Toolkit for MS Office for different versions of MS Office?

    I want to create an application which uses the Report Generation Toolkit for Microsoft Office. The office version of the target machine depends on what my customer has installed.
    From several discussions I have seen that the installer detects which version I have on my development machine. I'm not able to hold three or four machines with different versions (97,2000,2002,XP).
    I decided to do the following software architecture:
    I create a LLB MakeReport.llb with a VI called With VI server I will start in MakeReport.llb. Over a named queue I will send a command from my application to Then the report will be
    I will create this LLB by saving with File>>Save with options...>>Application distribution. All neccessary VIs will be in the LLB.
    I will hold different directories for each version. I can create different version of the LLB. During installation of my application the LLB for the right version will be copied from the CD to the application folder.
    I know I will be restricted in testing my report in only one version and hoping it will be good in the other versions.
    I think that the difference lays only in the word and excel related llbs.
    1. Will my software architecture work or is it obviously wrong?
    2. How will I get all versions from the toolkit CD?
    3. Which is the registry key I must read to get the right version (a minor question, if somebody knows I do not need to search for myself).
    Using 7.1.1, 8.5.1, 8.6.1, 2009 on XP and RT
    Don't forget to give Kudos to good answers and/or questions

    Lookout saves the files in .csv form which can be opened in Excel. I did make some progress by using the "append table to report" vi which allowed me to put values into an array and then those values were entered into my template on my report vi.
    Where I am stuck now is I want to be able to put values into my template from a .csv file, not from an array I have to manually put numbers in.
    Once those values are in my template I want to pull summed values from the template and place them into a final excel file for printing.
    I have attached examples of the files I am working with to help you better understand what I am trying to do.
    I hope that makes sense.

  • Can i set up my drive as encrypted with different partitions for different versions of osx?

    i have some questions about setting up an encrypted drive with different versions of osx installed on separate partitions, and how this choice effects time-machine and the emergency recovery disk.
    I have a new/refurbished macbook pro with a SSD.  it already has mavericks installed.  i want to fully wipe the drive and reinstall everything my self because I'm odd like that.
    first wiping the current drive
    Does the recovery partition get wiped if i use disk-utility to reformat the drive. Even thought the recovery partition does not show up as a partition, when i look at it with disk-utility? i would like to know I've wiped all partitions so that no little bugger gets left with out me knowing. Disk-utility does not show the recovery partition and this makes me concerned it might not wipe it.
    Does mavericks automatically make a recovery partition during the installation process? Or do i need to make a new 1gb partition for the recovery disk?
    Can i have two different partitions on my drive with separate installations of OSX on it? (one for work that i don't update the system os till my current project is done, and the other for experimenting with new software.)
    will time machine back up both of the partitions or just one?
    can i accomplish all this from a bootable usb drive or do i need to do this in target disk mode? 
    do i need to use a more capable utility than the stock apple "disk-utility"?
    when reformatting the drive should i format it as encrypted or let file vault do this after i install mavericks?
    how much does encryption slow down performance for things like photo/video/music production?

    Do a backup before you do anything.
    Does the recovery partition get wiped if i use disk-utility to reformat the drive
    It shouldn't
    Does mavericks automatically make a recovery partition during the installation process?
    Can i have two different partitions on my drive with separate installations of OSX on it?
    will time machine back up both of the partitions or just one?
    It will as long as one partition is not excluded in the Time Machine/Options.
    do i need to use a more capable utility than the stock apple "disk-utility"?
    No, just boot into the Recovery Volume (command  - R on a restart).
    file vault do this after i install mavericks?
    I would let File Vault do that.

  • Teststand deployment utility used for different versions of TestStand

    I am in a situation where I developed a test sequence in TestStand 3.5 and used the deployment utility to deliver an installer to a customer with TestStand 2010 Base deployment Engine.  We are seeing the following error "This installer installs file to the TestStand directory.  You must first install TestStand or the TestStand runtime engine version 3.5 to create the TestStand directory."
    My question becomes, is it even possible to make an installer with TestStand 3.5 and have someone else use with TestStand 2010 Base deployment engine?  What then needs to happen to get past the error if it is possible?
    John 3:16

    No you cannot use 3.5 sequences on the 2010 engine.
    You need to install the 3.5 engine on that machine.  The license will still work and you will need to use the version selector to go between the two.  You can include the engine in your installer build.
    TestStand is a scripting language.  Because sequence files are not compiled it is possible to use unsupported functions on the wrong version.  Therefore, the engine just won't run other versions.  Also, you need to switch versions because they use different adapters, engines, dlls, folders, etc...  The version selector changes settings on your machine for all those things for that version.
    Hope this helps,

  • How can I handle deploying multiple test systems on the same PC that have been developed using different versions of LabVIEW, TestStand, and/or Switch Executive?

    The major issue here is that the test systems must be documented and validated before being released to the production floor. Given this if a test station has multiple test systems deployed on it that have been developed on various versions of LV, TS, and Switch exec how can I force the test system selected to use the correct versions of TS, LV, and Switch exec.? I understand that the solution would be to recomplie everything and bring them up to the latest version but that would then require re-validation according to the QA department. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    It would be nice if theTS deployment was more like an LV executable... meaning when a LV executable is launched it always knows what LV runtime engine to use when there are multiple engines installed on a PC.

    Multiply versions of teststand can reside on the same system, but only one version can run at a time. They is a utility that has to be run to set the active version.
    The SequenceFiles have a version number, and you will find an error will be generate if you try to Load the sequencefile in the wrong version of TestStand.
    The labview VIs will only work providing the correct version of the RTE is also installed on your system, even a labview executabe requires the correct RTE to be installed, either as part of the executable installation or as a seperate installation, before the labview exe will work correctly.
    I'm not fimilar with the Switch exec but I would expect that it will also require the correct lower level device drivers to be available for the version you are using.
    Therefore, as you are indicating that some of your system are at  a older version, its difficult to image how you could achive this, considering if you say you have different versions of the software(s). For a start, you may have the problem that newer code/ sequencefiles using additional functionatily not available in the older versions.
    I would think your only solution would  be to have different deployments covering the different versions you have, or at least bring all your test systems up to the same version of teststand.
