How to open Labview 8.5 VI in Labview 8.2
Hi I am using LabVIEW 8.2.I found one ook modulation example project(http://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-1394),it was developed in Labview 8.5.I have to oepn this one in My system mean in Labview 8.2.Please tell procedure.Is it possible or not.?Thnaking you sir.
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....
Hi Mathan,Thanks for your reply.i need OOK Modulation (FPGA).VI and OOK Modulation (HOST).VI in version 8.2Here i am attaching this two vi please save it in version 8.2 and send to me.Thanking you Sreenivasulu.O

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 will the VIs compile so it is a good idea to make a mass compile in the folder where the VIs are.
...How can I run a labview 7.2 vi in labview 8.2
We have several versions of labview running different test and control functions in our facility. There are labview 7.2 VIs in a production setting I wish to reproduce in the test lab. Can I convert them to run on 8.2 or do I have to recreate them in 8.2. I tried to open one in 8.2 and got multiple SubVI's that were not in my program library.. most dealing with AI manipulation.
And make sure you have backup copies of your 7.x code. Once you load and save in 8.2, it is a lot of work to get them back to 7.x.
Note I used 7.x because I am unaware of LabVIEW version 7.2 even existing. 7.1.1 was the last release prior to 8.0
...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 !
...labview 8.2 to 8.5?
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.
Here is the link to the SSP program: <a href="http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/en/nid/13351" target="_blank">http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/en/nid/13351</a>

...Installing the 8.2.1 run time engine on a system with LabVIEW 8.2 installed
Note: This is a <a href="http://forums.lavag.org/index.php?showtopic=7942" target="_blank">cross-post to LAVA</a>. If I have a system with LabVIEW 8.2 installed and I upgrade only the
RTE to 8.2.1 (leaving LabVIEW 8.2 installed) will I run into any
problems?- Will applications that I build in LabVIEW 8.2 still run correctly?
RTE will applications that I build in 8.2 require? (I'm presuming that
the 8.2.1 RTE upgrade will not touch the lvapp.lib stub used by the app
builder and that apps built in 8.2 will run in the 8.2 RTE)
Here is what I (think I) know: - The
8.2.1 run time engine (RTE) is an upgrade to the 8.2 RTE, meaning that
the 8.2 and 8.2.1 RTEs cannot be installed at the same time.

using LabVIEW 8.2.1 require the 8.2.1 RTE and will not run in the 8.2
Has anyone attempted this?Thanks,
Anything that we product that is X.X.X is mostly a bug fix release, and so you are correct in that it installs over X.X (your example 8.2.1 installs over 8.2 and so it is not possible to have them installed at the same time separately). It also means that there is a good chance that you can interchange VIs and projects without a problem, but it is not guaranteed.
This means that applications built in LV 8.2 can run using 8.2.1 RTE, and LV 8.2.1 applications can probably run with 8.2 RTE, but it is highly recommended to have the same ve...LabVIEW 8.2 -- "unable to locate LabView run-time" error message

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
Hopefully it does!!

Im sure labview is backward compatibility.Is there a way to add this module to 8.5 so that i can work with this module ?Message Edited by Bharath kumar on 04-07-2008 09:53 AM
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 a system with labview version 8.2.1 installed. Now we have got a new version, 8.5 witch I have also installed, with the same serial code. When I want to work with version 8.5 it asks to activate, but version 8.2.1 works the way it used to be.
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. :)

...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. In addition, the severe performance degradation seen in Datasockets going from LabVIEW 7.1 to 8.2 was an artifact of my testing environment. I have fixed it and now actually see a performance improvement. I have updated the presentation and zipped it and the test code in the attachment below. I also tested in LabVIEW 8.5 with the following results, which can be compared to the presentation (same experimental setup).10,000 DBL read/write cyclesMode - Time (ms)Global - 7.6Single Process Shared Variable - 12.8Network Shared Variable - 1980Datasocket - 10700Configuration VI - 745Control Reference - 2440GOOP 1.0 - 2000LV2 Global - Semaphore - 294LV2 Global - Action Engine - 13.7Single Element Queue - 41.4Read of 1MByte BufferMode - Time (ms)

I have Windows XP MME installed with LabView 8.2. At first the NI HELP did not work. The hourglass pause would show and just vanish without anything returned. No lockup, just remains at the Getting Started Window.. I ran two patches suggested by NI at the windows start>run command. Now the NI Help window opens. But when I try to find something under the SEARCH tab, nothing is found. At that time I try to select the INDEX tab, and after a breif pause, a windows pop box is displayed indicating that an error has occurred and that a report is to be be sent to Microsoft. Then after I let it do its stuff, and close that box, I find that LabVIEW has frozen also and needs to be exited, of cours another Microsoft error box pops up and wants to send another report. I was instructed by a NI rep to uninstall and perform a fresh reinstall. Still the same result. I was able to obtain LV 8.5. I fully removed LV 8.2, and installed LV 8.5. The exact same thing happens. It appears to me a MS system problem, but where and how do I go about to fix this?

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

Kind of like turning the second file into a karaoke version and filling in the vocals with the vocal line from the first file. A second option is simply taking the instrumentals from a song (a wav file containing only the bass line) and adding them to the first file after cutting out the original bass line of the first if this isn't possible.

Is there a "hidden" option to enable/disable multithreading under LW8.2.1 ?
Thank you for your help
To disable multithreading, add ESys.StdNParallel=0 to the ini file.

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!
...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.

Does LabVIEW run-time engine 8.5 support earlier version of LabVIEW compiled files and how far back does it support?
Hello Simon, The
Run-Time Engines are not backwards compatible. I.e. LabVIEW Run-Time
Engine 8.5 cannot run executables made in LabVIEW 8.2.1.So, you need to install the Run-time engine for the version of LabVIEW that
the code was written in. E.g. If your VI was written in LabVIEW 8.5,
you need to have the LabVIEW 8.5 RTE (Run Time Engine) installed in
order to run it after it is compiled into an executable. In order to check which Run-Time Engines you already have installed to your PC, browse to the following directory.C:\Program Files\National Instruments\Shared\LabVIEW Run-TimeIn
that directory, you will find a different folder for every version of
Run-Time Engine that you currently have installed onto your system.Hope this helps!
...upgrading cRIO from Labview 7 to Labview 8
Hi again :)
I have a cRIO system that is running Labview 7. It runs fine. No problems. We've upgraded to LV8 and I'm wondering if I should convert the LV7 system to LV8. The only reason I would do this is because for me LV8 is much easier to work with regarding cRIO (using DMA, setting up the project etc.).
Now, if I attempt to upgrade the LV7 cRIO system, what kinds of problems will I run in to? I assume it means formatting the cRIO, installing LV8, converting the program from LV7 to LV8...
Is there an FAQ regarding this, specifically about the cRIO?

...Labview 8.5 application builder .exe does not run.The same source code runs ok.
Hi, I have an application built in labview 8.5 application builder using windows XP. I have one instrument connected in gpib and one connected to a serial port. The source code runs ok but when I build an executable of teh same code and try to run it, it doesnt run the instrument connected to the serial port. It does communicate with the gpib port. Any ideas why this would be happening?Steven
My first guess (and what happens to me too often) is that you didn't set the com port as a default in one of the controls, and it is defaulting elsewhere. If you freshly open the program (VI, not exe), then run it, without touching any controls, will it work? If you have to change any controls, do them after you hit run, as that is what the exe will see. It may give some insight.
Additional to Britoa's reply: Did you add the serial commuication (drivers) when you built the application?
if you use dynamic VIs (launched with VI sever) - you must make sure to include these VIs as dynamic dependencies
