labview 8.2 llb run with labview 8.5
On the PC I have delete labview 8.2, but I dont find the CD for reinstall. I have a .llb file made with labview 8.2, Can i run it with labview 8.5 or download labview 8.2, I muss install ii rapidelly.
Costello, you can update the VIs within the LLB to LV 8.5 if they do not have their blockdiagram removed.....hope this helps,Norbert
How can I update ? When I start the .vi in the lbb he dont found somme .vi located in DAQmx (wrtie.lbb, start task.lbb,...) How can i install this lbb?
Costello, if you get loading errors when opening one VI from the LLB like you the ones you get, you have missing components.Since you spoke of DAQmx, i asume that you didn't install NI DAQmx on your machine. You should catch that up.hope this helps,Norbert
...opening a labview 8.5 file with labview 8.21
Hello,I was working on a project at home with labview 8.21, I nearly finished this project but I addes some stuff at school where they have labview 8.5.Today I wanted to open the labview file on my computer, but It gave an error:
labview load error 9: Vi version 8.5 is newer then labVIEW version 8.2.1.Is there any way I can open the file on my computer?Or can I save the file at school als a 8.2.1 file?
thnx in advance,Seppe
Hi Seppe, just save it in school using "Save to previous" from the file menu...
You'll have to reopen the file on a computer with LV 8.5. From there you can do a Save as Previous Version to save back to LV 8.2.1
Hi Seppe, if you have LabView 8.5 you can save your vi for previous verions (8.2.1 and 8.0)Mike
ok, thnx for all the correct answers !

It is not possible directly. Somebody with access to version 8.5 needs to save it for version 8.2.
Could you attach that particular vi in your post so that somebody can save it for 8.2
Or you can install Labview 8.5 demo. Works for 30 days....

I need to upgrade a LabView 5.1.1 project to LabView 8.5. Is this difficult? Can I upgrade directly from 5.1.1 to 8.5?
Can I upgrade directly from 5.1.1 to 8.5?
See page 43 of the 8.5 upgrade notes: <a href="http://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/371780c.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/371780c.pdf</a>
I had suspected that LV 5.1 fell by the way-side.
You'll have to upgrade to an earlier version and then go to LV 8.5.
There may be complications since many things have changed.

...I need convert LabVIEW 4.0 files to LabVIEW 8.5. Can it be done?
I am running LV8.5. I am upgrading and/or converting an old legacy system. All I have is the disk with the VIs from the old system. I do not have an older version of LV installed.
I can install all the way back to version 5.1. But I am concerned, can LV8.5 convert 5.1? The real question is what is the earliest version of LV that 8.5 will convert and will that version convert 4.0.1?
I have to imagine this has been done. With all the legacy systems going obsolete. This should be a common need.
Thanks for all of the responses. I have about 500+ VIs to convert. I would not be able to post them because of the nature of the projet but thanks for the suggestion. I have to imagine that someone in the office has 8.2 still floating around. I do not want to go back to 6 or 7. I will hunt for an older machine in the AM. Maybe a good job for an intern.
...Would a LabVIEW 8.5 Executable play nice with LabVIEW 7.1 Development on the Same System?
Our testing computer right now just has the user run the corresponding .vi file since we have LabVIEW 7.1 installed on the computer.
If I use 8.5 to compile this .vi to an executable, I realize that I must install the run-time support for 8.5. My question is what effect will installing the 8.5 run-time have on the ability to continue to run the other 7.1 VIs with LabVIEW 7.1.
Should I be concerned with losing MAX settings when installing the run-time support for 8.5? I want to be able to run 8.5 executables but also able to open up a 7.1 .vi file in LabVIEW 7.1 and run it that way also.
Thanks for your help! I have 8.5 on my system and the idea is to slowly replace the running of the .vi files with .exe files, I was just curious in case my .exe doesn't work I can still run the tests with .vi in the mean time.
Thanks for your help folks!

In order to go from LV 8.5 to LV 7, you will need to have LV 8.5 (save it back to 8.0), LV 8.0 (save it back to 7.1) and LV 7.1 (to save back to 7.0).
If it's only a few small VI's, you can post them on the forum and ask someone to do the saves for you. (Best if you do the save back to 8.0 and post that in order to eliminate 1 of the 3 steps for whoever will do the rest of the conversions for you.)
yeah. great.. i did all those steps.i went from 8.0 to 7.1i dont have labview 7.1 so i can't go to 7.0.can someone please help me.
Please try the attached to see if it works with LV7.0

Greetings, I've been looking around for a detailed set of requirements for LabVIEW 8.5.1 and DAQmx 8.7.1 for the Windows 2000 platform. So far I know I'll need Service Pack 4 and probably Explorer 6 and .Net 2 But I can't find confirmation on the last two things, and I'm not sure if there are any more. Does anyone have a link to this information on ni.com? Thanks.
The system requirements for LabVIEW and win2k are in the release notes. If you have 8.5, then the release notes are installed in the manuals folder. I have 8.5 and for win2K, it says the minimum is service pack 3, IE5 (IE5.5/service pack 2 for remote panels), and .NET 1.1 service pack 1.
In the NI-DAQ folder (\Program Files\National Instruments), you should have a readme.html file that lists the system requirements.
Both of these files should be available at <a href="http://www.ni.com/support/" target="_blank">http://www.ni.com/support/</a>
Thanks for the reply Denis, I'd found both of those previously actually. But I wasn't sure they were "complete". I can't say 100%, But I'm pretty sure I had to install .Net 2 on a system once before for DAQmx. (Or maybe there was a warning...or something) Just thought I'd try and find out as much as I could before I go and do a remote upgrade where I won't have any Internet a...Labview 5.1 to 8.5 conversion error message
We have some old VIs made with Labview 5.1 on Windows NT 2000. We are trying to back up our system and want to transfer those VIs to a new laptop which has Labview 8.5 and works on Vista. As per your suggestion to someone on a similar problem, i saved the VI in Labview 6 version and then opened it using 8.5 version. A warning appears as follows-
Please explain is this a serious warning or should i just ignore it? If it is serious, how to open my VI in 8.5 without getting this warning?

In older versions of LabVIEW, when you set the non-default input limits for a numeric and an input was coerced to be within the limits, it was coerced when the input was changed from the front panel or when passed to it from a calling VI. Now, the coercion only occurs when changed on the front panel.. In your case, you can probably ignore it. I th...Reference Objects in LabVIEW
Several attendees requested LabVIEW 8.5 data for the benchmarks I showed at my NI Week presentation - TS1284 - Reference Objects in LabVIEW.

Hi Bharath, What probably happened is that you installed the module under LabVIEW 8.2. By default, toolkits and modules can only be installed for one version of LabVIEW. However, <a href="http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/58BE852CB35237C786256A290079DF39?OpenDocument" target="_blank">KnowledgeBase 288G6JB5: Installing Toolkits for Use with Multiple Versions of LabVIEW</a> details how to install the module for multiple versions. Another way would be to reinstall the toolkit and make sure that you have LabVIEW 8.5 selected as the destination. Good Luck! Wes PApplications EngineerNational Instruments
The LabVIEW Simulation 8.2 is a Module, which means that it can only work with the version that was created for. In this case, it only work on LabVIEW 8.2.

I have two laptops - Laptop 1 has Labview 8.0 on it, and Laptop 2 has Labview 7.1.1 installed. I've just upgraded Laptop 2 to Labview 8.5.1 and copied all of my Labview 8.0 files over from Laptop 1. I did a mass compile on Laptop 2 and all the vi's work great. I've opened up a Project that I copied over from LV 8.0 and it looks like the Installers are ok. However, when I open the Properties on any of my Applications (EXEs) all of the Information is blank. When I type in the "Build specification name" and use the same name as the one I opened, it tells me that that name already exists.
Does anyone know why my Application is blank? Thanks.
Does the .exe file that has blank properties function correctly
otherwise, and was that .exe one of the files that you mass compiled?
Could you zip and post your project so that I can try to reproduce the
problem? That way we can see if the problem is in your system, or with
the .exe itself.
Also, do you want to change the properties of the .exe? If so, what changes do you want to make?
Thanks for the reply. Over the weekend I re-copied my Project from Laptop 1 to Laptop 2 and it was ok - I was able to build the EXE without a single problem.

Did I instal it wrong? Upgrade insted of a new installation? Or should I unistal version 8.2.1 before installing version 8.5?
As Matthew mentioned, all versions need to be activated.
There is no reason to uninstall a previous version, you should actually keep it around in case you run into some upgrade issues.
Your start menu should have a link to the NI license manager. It will tell you exactly what you have installed and even lets you activate what needs to be activated. :)

I have an older version of labview (8.2) and wanted to know if i could update it to the current version without having to buy a whole new system.
Are you asking if there are additional costs to upgrading from LV8.2 to LV8.5?
If that is asking, the answer is yes. You can purchase a Standard Service Program (which is typically included for the first year), which means you automatically get upgrades.
The other option is to go to this link: <a href="http://www.ni.com/labview/" target="_blank">http://www.ni.com/labview/</a> and select upgrade. You then enter your serial number and it should tell you how much to upgrade to 8.5 and/or to a more complete version of LabVIEW.
A third alternative is to contact your local NI representative with whom you can discuss your LV sw / upgrade needs.

I started using SPC toolkit for a project in Labview 8.2.1, had no problem until I upgraded my system to labview 8.5. It said something like: Some subvis are too old to be converted to 8.5.I went to the Labview Developer suite CD album (labview 8.5), and couldn't find the SPC for LabVIEW, only for LabWindows / CVI. Then I went to NI's website and tried to find more about the toolkit, it seems this one had disappeared into thin air, along with the Enterprise connectivity toolkit (or Enterprice toolkit).Does anybody know if NI stopped developing / supporting the SPC toolkit? Or if NI included it into other toolkit or product?Thanks,-Joe
it could be that there are some vi�s from LV5. So i think if you save the vi�s which are to old to use with LV8.5 with 8.2.1 then it should work.
It is included with the DSC module in 8.5.
Got it! Thanks! -Joe

I installed LabVIEW Professional Sys. for Windows (XP) 8.5 and then the 8.5.1 update. Somewhere in the original installation, LV Run-time Engine 7.1 was installed. But I need LV RTE 7.1.1. So I attempted to install RTE 7.1.1. Problem: The LV RTE installer aborts with the following message:
"Installation aborted. Newer version already installed."
Why do I need 7.1.1? I must run some commercial LV executables that were compiled with LV 7.1.1 and will not run under 7.1. :smileysad:
You may have to uninstall RTE 8.5.1 to proceed with the 7.1.1 install and then reinstall RTE 8.5.1.
I hope this helps!
Well, I have to correct myself. MAX indicated that LV RTE 7.1 (not 7.1.1) was installed. My complied LV app indicated that 7.1.1 was not installed. I checked Windows Add New Programs and selected "National Instruments Software" I found that LV RTE 7.1.1 was, in fact, installed. So I selected LabVIEW Runtime Engine 7.1.1 and clicked Repair. After rebooting, My app works correctly. Again, MAX incorrectly displays LV RTE 7.1 (not 7.1.1). My app works, so I don't care. :smileyhappy:
