Issue Details

I want to upgrade to LabVIEW 2016 or 2017 but I can't find a version of ECU Measurement and Calibration Toolkit that is supported. How can I upgrade LabVIEW and still include support for ECUMC?

How Can I Enable LabVIEW 2016 or 2017 Support for ECU Measurement and Calibration Toolkit (ECUMC) 15.0?


ECUMC 15.0 is the most recent version, but it can be configured to enable support for LabVIEW 2016 or 2017 by following these steps:

1. Install NI-XNET 16.0 or later.

2. Run the ECUMC 15.0 Installer. Within the Features dialog, select LabVIEW 2015 support for the installation. The bitness selected should be the same as the LabVIEW 2016/2017 installation you plan to use. Also, ensure to also select to install the related examples, as shown below:

3. After completing the ECUMC 15.0 installation, reboot your computer.

4. Open the NI License Manager and activate the LabVIEW/ECUMC feature if it is not already. This can be found under LabVIEW 2015»Toolkits

5. In Windows Explorer, open your LabVIEW 2015 directory (depending on if you are using 32-bit or 64-bit):
