Issue Details

I am trying to run a LabVIEW NXG GVI asynchronously from TestStand 2017. It is asking me to locate a .gll file which I couldn't find. How can I create a .gll file and how to use it in TestStand?


When set to run-time engine, the LabVIEW NXG adapter can only execute code from a .gll. You'll either need to change the adapter settings to use the development environment, or build the code into a GLL. For more information on how to do so please have a look at this article.

Additional Information

As long as your project has a .gcomp with the sub-type set to .gll, the adapter will automatically build the GLL for you when you execute the sequence.
Also please note, that TestStand 2017 is not yet adapted to work with LabVIEW NXG 2.1. To solve this problem, you would need to revert back to LabVIEW NXG 2.0.
