How can I convert the "AI one pt" symbol from LabVIEW 6.3 to LabVIEW 8.0?

I've got an assignment with LabVIEW and I work with LabVIEW 8.0. The program I work with is written in LabVIEW 6.3 and had to be converted to LabVIEW 8.0. That went very well, except for one symbol. The "AI one pt" symbol (see enclosed figure) turned into an empty box (question mark). My question to you is how can I overcome this problem, or how can I simulate this symbol with LabVIEW 8.0?
With kind regards,
Sander Smeets

Graziano is right about this. To make it completly clear: The block you refer to as a symbol is a VI belonging to the Traditional NI-DAQ driver. Currently there are two drivers for DAQ boards: DAQmx (the new one) and Traditional NI-DAQ (the old one). Since your VI was written in LabVIEW 6.x (6.3 never existed) the VI uses the old driver. What you need to do is: install Traditional NI-DAQ on your PC to get the support VI's for the driver in LabVIEW. This Traditional NI-DAQ installer&nbsp;should be on the driver CD which was delivered along with LabVIEW 8.0 or you can download it here:

There is one good point though which Graziano already mentioned: Which DAQ board are you using? It could be that you will need an ever older version of NI-DAQ (traditional) to get your DAQ board supported. Let me know if you have any more questions

How can I modify the &quot;Type definitions&quot; of &quot;Function Prototype&quot; if I want build a DLL in Labview 8.5.1.?
Hello,We have a library with several VIs (API - Interfaces to our Real Time Target). This VIs we provide to our customer to generate own VIs to control the Real Time Target.Now we want to provide the functionality of this VI-library as DLL to our customer. The problem is, that labview use self definite name of type definitions. Also if I use "strict Type definition".Example:void GetOutputValues(VARIANT *Scale_In, int32_t ModelNr, uint16_t SignalID[], TD1:smileymad: *errorIn, VARIANT *Scale_Out, TD2 *Data, TD1 *errorOut, int32_t len)It is possible to modify "TD1" and "TD2"? I want to give useful names.GreetingsSteffen Hi Steffen, &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Try&nbsp;editing the .h file as follows: CHANGE FROM: typedef struct {&nbsp;LVBoolean status;&nbsp;long code;&nbsp;LStrHandle source;&nbsp;} TD1; CHANGE TO: typedef struct {&nbsp;LVBoolean status;&nbsp;long code;&nbsp;LStrHandle source;&nbsp;} TD1; typedef struct {&nbsp;LVBoolean status;&nbsp;long code;&nbsp;LStrHandle source;&nbsp;} LVErrorCluster; then your GetOutputValues prototype becomes: void GetOutputValues(VARIANT *Scale_In, int32_t ModelNr, uint16_t SignalID[], LVErrorCluster *errorIn, VARIANT *Scale_Out, TD2 *Data, LVErrorCluster *errorOut, int32_t len) If your source-code doesn't refer to "TD1", then&nbsp;you probably won't need to keep the TD1 prototype!

Error 1047 in LabVIEW 8.2: LabVIEW failed to send variable to the script server. Server:&quot;&quot;
I am working with the evaluation version of labVIEW as well and I have run into another error.&nbsp; I am using a MATLAB script node within a for loop and attempting to pass the for loop counter variable into the script.&nbsp; When I run the code it brings up a 1047 error and says "LabVIEW failed to send variable to the script server.

Adding an &quot;IMAQ Image.ctl&quot; to the &quot;Display State.ctl&quot; of an XControl prevents LabVIEW from creating a probe of &quot;Display State.ctl&quot;
I am working on an extended IMAQ Display control using LabVIEWs XControl capabilities. &nbsp; I need a copy of the original image passed to add some overlays which must not affect the original image. To achieve this I am creating a backup image in the "Init.vi" and deleting it in the "Uninit.vi". I am storing the reference&nbsp;of this image&nbsp;in the "Display State.ctl" which is part of every XControl. &nbsp; As soon as I am adding an "IMAQ Image.ctl" to the Display State cluster, it is no longer possible to generate a probe of the Display State cluster for debugging purposses. I am always getting the message: "Failed to load or create probe." Deleting the "IMAQ Image.ctl" from the cluster makes the probe working again. &nbsp; Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong? &nbsp; I am working with LabVIEW 8.5 and Vision 8.5. &nbsp; Regards &nbsp; Ingo Bartsch Hello Mr. Bartsch, is it possible for you to post a small example to reproduce the behaviour?

What is the equivalent of the &quot;AI waveform scan.vi&quot; in Labview 8.2 on the Windows Vista platform
Hello, I'm a very newcomer in the Labview area. I'm trying to develop an interface for my lab activities. Now I'm in the way tu switch from Labview 6.1 to Labview 8.2. On the lab computer is installed Windows Vista. The traditional DAQ in not working properly so I installed the DAQmx but neither this is not working properly. My question is what s the equivalent of the "AI waveform scan.vi" in Labview 8.2&nbsp; on the Windows Vista platform? Best wishes to all You first need to check the version of DAQmx that you have installed. The first version with Vista support is 8.5. The latest is <a href="http://joule.ni.com/nidu/cds/view/p/id/965/lang/en" target="_blank">8.7.1</a>. Second, AI Waveform Scan was a fairly high level VI that called multiple DAQ functions. There is no single replacement that I am aware of. You need to use the low level DAQmx functions such as DAQmx Create Channel, DAQmx Timing, DAQmx Start Task, DAQmx Read, etc. If you are converting an old program, you might want to attach that so that someone can look at it and recomend what you need for the conversion. ...

Memory is full during &quot;Save As&quot; of LabVIEW 8.5 project
Good Morning All, &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Have run into a weird issue while trying to rename a LabVIEW 8.5 project. I've got two projects that ended up having the same names (one by me, one by another engineer). I want to open both at the same time, so I figured I'd open the one and do a "save as", or a "rename". The first time it started processing, doing file loads, and then hung looking for a sub-vi, with the search address pointing to the .llb in the LV 8.5 directory where I manually located it. Once that was resolved, and the original project saved I tried again. This time it did a bunch of loading and then gave me an error box with the message:&nbsp; "LabVIEW:&nbsp; Memory is full.&nbsp; Cannot save project 'original project name.lvproj'" This isn't a big project, the machine is a new HP Compaq dual core 2.8GHz with 1.5Gb of ram, so I don't really think that it should be generating anything that big. This happens with either a "save as" or "rename". I ended up just changing the names of the .lvproj .aliases files to the one I needed and it seems to load ok, but it would be nice to understand what is happening here. &nbsp; &nbsp; This is interesting behavior, since NI actually ensured that you would now have the ability to Save As and Rename a project with the <a href="http://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/371780c.pdf" target="_blank">release ...

Is &quot;write to digital line.vi&quot; compatible in LabVIEW 7.0
I developed a LabVIEW program to change the logic state of a digital line using the "write to digital line.vi". This was first done in labVIEW 6.1. The version was later upgraded to LabVIEW 7.0 later and the VI doesn't seem to perform the function correctly, meaning when I tried to change the line state from "low" to "high", it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Is this because of compatibility issue of "write to digital line.vi" with LabVIEW 7.0? Thanks! There should be no problem using the traditional DAQ driver in 7.0. After installing 7.0, did you reinstall traditional DAQ? Does the traditional DAQ driver show up in MAX? Do you get any error when you run the VI? Yes, the traditonal NI-DAQ still shows up in MAX under software as well as the Devices and interfaces (because I have traditional NI-DAQ (legacy) devices). Can I have both the traditional NI-DAQ and the NI-DAQmx on my computer? When we first ran it, it did come up with a error message. But after we installed the legacy NI-DAQ (I guessed it is the traditional Ni-DAQ), the error goes away. Could you read anything from it? Thanks a lot! The two can coexist though it has been quite a while since I've had to do it. The thing to make sure is that if the card is supported by both drivers, that the driver you want to use is the active one. You can check and reset it in MAX. ...

If you run out of memory,&nbsp;RT will just STB. :smileysurprised: Ben Hey Ben, Thanks for responding. I do have a display hooked up to my RT desktop, but when it reboots, it reboots.&nbsp; Screen goes blank.&nbsp; No messages. How do you watch the memory usage on the RT target? What does STB mean? Thanks, In LV 8 and up I believe there is a property under the RT target inside the project. STB = "Sh#$ The Bed" Ben You can go to Tools --&gt; Real-Time Module --&gt; System Manager ...

Labview 8.5 error on save: &quot;Cannot load help information of [filename].&quot;
Hi all, &nbsp; &nbsp;I was working on a VI in Labview 8.5 when the program (Labview) crashed. When I relaunched Labview it asked me if I wanted to recover the VI&nbsp;I was working on,&nbsp;I said yes and the recovered VI runs fine, but I cannot save it. When&nbsp;I try to Save or Save As I receive the following error message: "Cannot load help information of [Filename]" and my only option is "Cancel Save". If I click "Cancel Save" Labview returns a "File not Found error". Until the recovery, I could and did save the file with no problems. It now seems that I am locked out of the file. &nbsp; &nbsp; I have a backup, but it is does not contain the 2-3 hours of work I put in before the crash. Does anyone have a work-around, or know the source of this error? This is the second time I have seen it on a recovered file (the first time I had a fresh backup, so it wasn't a big issue). &nbsp; Here is a dump of the "Referencing files in the project or its dependencies" from the Save As dialog: &nbsp; [Project Name].lvprojreplay2-offsets.vi:Instance:6replay2-offsets.vi:Instance:5replay2-offsets.vi:Instance:3replay2-offsets.vi:Instance:2replay2-offsets.vi:Instance:4replay2-offsets.vi:Instance:1replay2-offsets.vi:Instance:0 &nbsp; Thank you, Tim I'm having the same problem. I came here to see if there was any information about this problem, and found the previous message. Lucky for me, I&#...
