Solution

This error occurs if you try to deploy shared variables to a VxWorks target that has insufficient onboard memory to host the shared variable library. The recommended workaround is to uninstall any unneeded software components on the target. Once there is enough available memory to host the shared variable library, the deployment should proceed without this error.

Additional Information

You can check memory usage on your VxWorks target by following the steps below:
  1. Open MAX. You can do this by selecting Start»Programs»National Instruments»Measurement & Automation.
  2. Expand Remote Systems in the Configuration window.
  3. Select your real-time controller.
  4. In the main window, select the System Settings tab. This tab includes the total and available memory, as well as the total disk space and the amount of free space on the disk.
