Issue Details

I would like to create a LabVIEW model to run in VeriStand on a Linux target (such as cRIO 903x), but when I go to Tools >> NI VeriStand >> Generate Model from VI, I do not see Linux in the Target OS drop-down menu.


Starting with LabVIEW 2017, users can generate LabVIEW models for VeriStand for Linux targets. 

In order to have this capability, you must install:
  • The NI VeriStand LabVIEW Models for NI Linux Real-Time Targets associated with your version of software
  • The required software for the LabVIEW Models for NI Linux Real-Time Targets that is listed in the Installation Instructions on the product download page
    • This includes LabVIEW Real-Time, CompactRIO drivers, NI VeriStand, and C/C++ Development Tools for Linux. Specific versions required will be available on your version's LabVIEW Models for Linux Real-Time Targets download page
