Issue Details

  • I want to know if I can use LabVIEW Merge tool between versions of LabVIEW.


LabVIEW Merge Tool will work between versions of LabVIEW in certain contexts.
  • If the version of LabVIEW will open VIs from the other version.
    • E.g. LabVIEW Merge in LabVIEW 2018 will work with VIs from LabVIEW 2014.

Additional Information

LabVIEW Merge Tool opens the VIs into memory. As long as the version you are using can open all the VIs to be merged the tool should work. 

Note:  Information on VI compatibility can be found in this tutorial on How to Upgrade or Revert a VI to a Different Version of LabVIEW.
