Issue Details

How do I access the VeriStand Execution APIs to automate VeriStand operations from LabVIEW? 

Solution

The VeriStand Execution APIs are automatically installed on systems that have both LabVIEW and VeriStand (versions must match).  To access these functions navigate to the Block Diagram of a LabVIEW VI >> right click to open the Functions Palette >> NI VeriStand >> Execution.

Note: Starting VeriStand 2021, the 64-bit version of LabVIEW is required in order to access the VeriStand Execution APIs. LabVIEW 2021 SP1 is required in order to automate VeriStand from LabVIEW.

Additional Information

VeriStand Execution APIs for LabVIEW are wrapped around NI VeriStand .NET APIs. Additional documentation can be found at the NI VeriStand .NET API Help.
