Issue Details

I would like to run a built LabVIEW Real-Time application/executable on a cRIO. Do I need to purchase any additional NI software to do this?


To run an executable on the cRIO, you will just need the NI LabVIEW Real-Time Deployment License which is already included in the following NI Real-Time Targets 
  • CompactRIO real-time
  • Compact FieldPoint real-time controllers
  • NI Compact Vision Systems
  • NI Smart Cameras
  • NI Embedded Vision Systems
  • NI industrial controllers

Additional Information

Please see Deploying a LabVIEW Real-Time Startup Executable without the LabVIEW Development Environment  for information regarding additional software needed for deploying the executable.
