I'm trying to use one of the LabVIEW debugging tools (Highlight Execution, Probe, Step Into, Step Over) but they do not seem to be working in my VI, or are missing/greyed out. What are some potential causes of this behavior?
If your debugging buttons are not visible, or if you cannot use the probe tool, the likely cause is that one of the VI Properties prohibits debugging. Here are the most common reasons that the debugging buttons are not visible:
If you are using the LabVIEW Real-Time module and your VI is set as reentrant, debugging tools will not be available, along with other LabVIEW features.If you are using the LabVIEW FPGA module, the debugging tools available will depend on the execution mode and the target selected. Please refer to the LabVIEW FPGA Module debugging documentation for more information.
