Cannot Find nimclv.dll When Deploying SoftMotion Code

Issue Details

When I try to deploy my NI SoftMotion code to my CompactRIO (cRIO), I get the following error: 

LabVIEW: (Hex 0x627) The function name for the nimclv.dll:nimclvPropBatch:C node cannot be found in the library.

How can I get my code to deploy?


  • Ensure you have the LabVIEW SoftMotion Module installed and activated for your version of LabVIEW on your computer. This error can occur if you are trying to run code that requires the full version of the NI LabVIEW SoftMotion module when you are running SoftMotion Lite. Activate SoftMotion if your code requires the full version of SoftMotion. This page covers the difference between SoftMotion Lite and the full version. 
  • This error can be caused by corrupted software installations on the CompactRIO target. Reformat your controller and reinstall the software. Ensure that you install the LabVIEW SoftMotion module support on the cRIO.
