I have a configuration file (.INI) with sections and keys to read using LabVIEW, but the Read Key VI is not finding the keys even though they're in the configuration file. I get the default value instead of the value in my file.
LabVIEW uses ASCII character formatting, therefore, reading from another character set file will not work as expected in some cases. You can use the Configuration File VIs for Windows configuration settings files only in the ANSI format.
Sometimes LabVIEW will be able to read just one section of the file, and not all the keys, if the file is not formatted correctly.
