Issue Details

After updating LabVIEW from 2014 to 2015, I tried to open NI 9505 example in NI example finder but a warning occurred: That file could not be found or opened. You may need to reinstall your examples. CompactRIO\Module Specific\NI 9505\Position Control (closed loop)\Position Control (closed loop) - NI 9505.lvproj


From LabVIEW 2014 SP1 SoftMotion Module sample projects are moved to sample project. To access the softmotion example for LabVIEW 2014 SP1 and later version, complete the following steps:
  1. Select File >> Create Project to open the Create Project dialog box.
  1. In Create Project dialog box, select Softmotion under Sample Projects and choose the hardware you are using. Then click next to configure details of the project.
  1. In configure details page, choose the Project Type according to your application then click finish to open the example.

For LabVIEW 2014 and Previous version, you can find the 950X example in NI Example Finder.
