Issue Details

I need to add a shared variable to my LabVIEW project. I followed the steps below but Variable doesn't not appear in the menu. Why is there no option to create a variable?

Instructions on how to create a shared variable in a LabVIEW project:
  1. Right-click My Computer in the Project Explorer window.
  2. Select New>>Variable.

Solution

Hosting of shared variables is not supported on Linux nor Macintosh. 
 

Additional Information

See Using the LabVIEW Shared Variable section 4, The Shared Variable Engine for more information.
