  • Why do I not have the option to create an I/O Server in my LabVIEW project?
  • I am getting a yellow warning triangle when opening a LabVIEW project that contains an I/O Server. How can I fix this?


The ability to create an I/O Server is added to LabVIEW by installing:
If you have already installed and activated the LabVIEW DSC Module and you are still unable to create I/O Servers in a LabVIEW project:
  • Ensure that you are attempting to do so in the LabVIEW 32-bit environment. The DSC module is not supported in LabVIEW 64-bit. You can check this by selecting Help>>About LabVIEW....
  • Try repairing or reinstalling the software involved: LabVIEW and Real-Time/DSC module.
