Issue Details

I am using CompactRIO on a new computer. I create a new project on LabVIEW, I connect the device and target it in my project explorer, the device appears, but has the warning "features not available" next to it.


  1. Check NI-MAX to see if the real-time module is installed on the host computer. You can check that it is installed and the version by following these instructions: Determine the Version of the NI Software Installed on My Computer
  2. Verify that all installed software is compatible with the device and the version of LabVIEW being used. LabVIEW Real-Time Module and LabVIEW FPGA Module should be the same year as the version of LabVIEW you're using. 
  3. Verify that the LabVIEW Real-Time module is installed and activated using the NI-License Manager
