Both the NI Vision Acquisition Software (VAS) and NI Vision Development Module (VDM) will install multiple function palettes into the LabVIEW environment.
If the software has been installed correctly, these palettes will be accessible by Right Clicking on the Block Diagram
and selecting the Vision and Motion
category of the function palette as shown below .
Note that the NI Vision Acquisition Software (VAS) and NI Vision Development Module (VDM) packages can be installed independently of one another and will add different function palettes to LabVIEW depending on which you have installed.
If you have installed either NI Vision Acquisition Software (VAS) or NI Vision Development Module (VDM) and are unable to locate the corresponding palettes in your LabVIEW environment, there was likely a problem with the installation. Note that both VAS and VDM must be installed after LabVIEW in order for the correct files to be created. If you have multiple versions of LabVIEW installed on the machine, be sure that your vision software has been installed for each version of LabVIEW. Note for users of Vision 7.0 and earlier:
The vision functions installed by older legacy software may be located in other categories than those indicated here. Please consult the documentation included with your software for specific details.
