Issue Details

Why do I get error 43 when I use Open/Create/Replace File.vi or return a True for the Canceled output terminal using the File Dialog.vi with LabVIEW Real-Time?

Solution

The Open/Create/Replace File.vi uses the File Dialog.vi to select the input path. The File Dialog.vi tries to open the system file selection dialog box, but the LabVIEW Real-Time Operating System does not have a system file dialog box. Instead you can use the List Folder VI that is located on the Functions┬╗File I/O┬╗Advanced File Functions palette.
