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.

Can LabView 8.5 read LabView 8.5.1 VIs
Since LabVIEW 8.5.1 is only a bug fix, can LabVIEW 8.5 read any VIs generated in LabVIEW 8.5.1? Simple answer YES. But it&nbsp;will the VIs compile so it is a good idea to make a mass compile in the folder where the VIs are. ...

Problem upgrading a Labview Project from 8.0 to 8.5.1
Hi, &nbsp; I have two laptops - Laptop 1 has Labview 8.0 on it, and Laptop 2 has Labview 7.1.1 installed.&nbsp; I've just upgraded Laptop 2 to Labview 8.5.1 and copied all of my Labview 8.0 files over from Laptop 1.&nbsp; I did a mass compile on Laptop 2 and all the vi's work great.&nbsp; I've opened up a Project that I copied over from LV 8.0 and it looks like the Installers are ok.&nbsp; However, when I open the Properties on any of my Applications (EXEs) all of the Information is blank.&nbsp; 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. &nbsp; Does anyone know why my Application is blank?&nbsp; Thanks. &nbsp; Steve &nbsp; Hi Steve, 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? Regards, Stephen S. Thanks for the reply.&nbsp; 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. Steve ...

Unable to install LV Runtime Engine 7.1.1 with LabVIEW Professional 8.5.1
I installed&nbsp;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: &nbsp; "Installation aborted. Newer version already installed."&nbsp; &nbsp; 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. &nbsp; 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&nbsp;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&nbsp;I don't care. :smileyhappy: ...

Windows 2000 requirements for LabVIEW 8.5.1 &amp; DAQmx 8.7.1
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.&nbsp; So far I know I'll need Service Pack 4 and probably Explorer 6 and .Net 2&nbsp;&nbsp; But I can't find confirmation on the last two things, and I'm not sure if there are any more.&nbsp; Does anyone have a link to this information on&nbsp; ni.com?&nbsp; Thanks.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; But I wasn't sure they were "complete".&nbsp; I can't say 100%,&nbsp; But I'm pretty sure I had to install .Net 2 on a system once before for DAQmx.&nbsp; (Or maybe there was a warning...or something)&nbsp; 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...

Save VI developed in Labview 6.1 to work in Labview 5.1
I have been working with Labview 6.1 but I need to execute my VIs in Labview 5.1 too. What can I do to reuse all the VIs without having to develop them again in Labview 5.1? I am not able to save my VIs as 5.1 from Labview 6.1 It only allows me to save them as Labview 6.0 Thank you! Assuming they can be converted, and there's not too many, you might want to try posting them here for someone to convert. (convert to 6.0 first and zip) Not too elegant but may get you out of a bind. Hello, Yes, each new version of LabVIEW only carries the capability to save for one version previous. So, you would need to save the 6.1 VIs for vesion 6.0, and then from LabVIEW 6.0 save for 5.1. If there aren't too many VIs, one of our engineers here would most likely have no problem with making the conversion for you. You could email NI with them to make it more private, if you'd like, rather than posting them on the site. (To create an email request, go to www.ni.com/ask). Hope this helps!

Labview 5.1 to 8.5 conversion error message
Hello We have some old&nbsp; VIs made with Labview 5.1 on Windows NT 2000.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; 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? &nbsp; "globals305.vi&nbsp; Front Panel&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; - Function (0:V DC) uses data range coercion, which now only applies to data entry; values will not be coerced when passed to subVIs.&nbsp; To coerce passed values,&nbsp; use the In Range and Coerce function.keithley2000portopen.vi&nbsp; Front Panel&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; - Serial Port (9600,7,E,2).Baud Rate [5:9600] uses data range coercion, which now only applies to data entry; values will not be coerced when passed to subVIs.&nbsp; To coerce passed values,&nbsp; use the In Range and Coerce function." 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.

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&nbsp;run the corresponding .vi file since we have LabVIEW 7.1 installed on the computer. &nbsp; 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.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; &nbsp; Should I be concerned with losing MAX settings when installing the run-time support for 8.5?

Converting Labview Test Executive 5.1 to work with LV7.1.1
Hi, &nbsp; I have a test that I wrote many years ago using Labview 5.1 and the Labview test executive 5.1 that I would like to modify. I would very much like to move this code to my current version of Labview which is 7.1.1.&nbsp; When I try to mass compile the Test Exec llb's, I get many errors indicating that some of the vi's have no block diagram, so they cannot be upgraded. Has anyone found a way to do this?&nbsp; &nbsp; Thanks in advance, &nbsp; Howard Spec CMC Electronics Canada Have you tried extracting the library as they were in LV5.1 and placing them into a folder.&nbsp; The open LV7.1.1 and go to that folder, and select it when doing a Mass Compile from LV7.1.1? &nbsp; R Are you trying to convert the Test Exec itself? It has been a long time since I've used that but I'm not sure if that is possible. I think the test exec itself was a product that you needed to get upgrades to. If the VIs without block diagrams are part of the test exec, I don't know what you can do since the test exec has been obsolete for quite&nbsp;a while and may never have gotten an upgrade to 7.1. I was about to say... The Test Executive was TestStand's predecessor, was it not?&nbsp; Written in CVI...&nbsp; The last version I'm aware of is 2.1, not 5.1.. Unless you're talking about a home-made Test Executive written in LV5.1? Or... was there a Labview version of the TestExecutive? R There was both a CVI and LabVIEW ve...

SubVI inputs and outputs in Labview 5.1.1
I have a SubVI that is used inside a while loop in the calling VI and there is a cluster outside the while loop and shift registers&nbsp;that retain the prior state of the cluster.&nbsp; This cluster outside the while loop&nbsp;is an input to the SubVI and contains the ON/OFF state of my heating and cooling appliances.&nbsp; How do you know what input to the SubVI&nbsp;corresponds to&nbsp;what local variable in the SubVI code?&nbsp;&nbsp;Why do you&nbsp;need that cluster outside the while loop?&nbsp;In the SubVI I am replacing the state of the heating and cooling appliances in a local cluster and outputting the new cluster back to the calling VI. &nbsp; &nbsp; That makes&nbsp;little sense. Why are there local variables in the subVI and why do you care. The external cluster is how you pass data to a subVI through the connector pane and the subVI has&nbsp;front panel terminals for this.&nbsp;&nbsp;And I would assume that it is outside the while to initialize the shift register to some know value before you start. Did someone else write the VI and subVI? If the cluster is not initializing the shift register, you really need to post an image of the code or the VI itself. Hi BME genuis, why do you need local variables. Local variables belong to a control. You can search for this control, with right click on the local variable and select -&gt; search for terminal.
