Which IAK File Does LabVIEW Use to Get Information Regarding My FieldPoint Configuration?

Solution

IAK files store all of the configuration information for FieldPoint hardware.  The IAK file that LabVIEW uses to access your FieldPoint configuration depends on how you're using LabVIEW (Project Explorer, VI or executable) and which FieldPoint VI you're using to communicate with your hardware (IO Control, Get Configuration, or Legacy VIs). The table below describes which IAK file is accessed in each situation.

FieldPoint Get Configuration Info VIIAK file associated with the projectIAK file that was last openedIAK file distributed with the EXE
Other legacy VIs (FieldPoint Open, FieldPoint Create Tag, FieldPoint Read, FieldPoint Write, etc.)IAK file that was last openedIAK file that was last openedIAK file that was last opened
