Issue Details

I want to use the VeriStand Execution API or Custom Device API to develop LabVIEW code for VeriStand. How do I install those APIs for my LabVIEW version?

Solution

LabVIEW Development Support for VeriStand is installed with the VeriStand Installer.
  1. Run the VeriStand Installer.
  2. When you get to the Features page, makes sure that LabVIEW Support for your LabVIEW version is selected to install.

  1. Continue through the installation. 
  2. Reboot your computer when prompted
You should now find the Execution API and Custom Device API in your LabVIEW functions palette.

Additional Information

If developing a custom device, you must make sure that the LabVIEW version you are using matches the VeriStand version. For example, if developing a custom device for VeriStand 2017, you must use LabVIEW 2017.
