Issue Details

I am trying to add my compactRIO to my LabVIEW project. When I right-click on the project and then select New Targets or Devices, I don't see compactRIO as an option.



I can see my cRIO in MAX and interact with but why can't I add it to my LabVIEW project.

Solution

This likely is happening because of an issue with the compactRIO driver.
  1. Ensure the compactRIO driver is installed in the same drive as LabVIEW.
  2. Force Reinstall the compactRIO driver.

Additional Information

If you have LabVIEW installed in a different drive (C:, F:, etc.) than the drivers, it will be unable to access them.
