LabVIEW Remote Debugging Cannot Find the Application

Issue Details

I have built my executable to include debugging and I can debug it correctly when it is running on my development computer. However, when I try to debug the executable running on a remote machine, I am not able to find any debuggable applications. I am able to ping the remote computer so I know the network is set up correctly. Why am I not able to connect to my remotely running debuggable executable?


There are various reasons you would not be able to find a remotely running debuggable executable from your development computer.
  1. Make sure that the version of the LabVIEW Development Environment you are using for remote debugging is the same version as the Run-Time Engine (RTE) in which the deployed code running.
    Note: If the application was built with the option Allow future versions of the LabVIEW Runtime to run this application, the newest available bit-compatible version will be used. If this option was deactivated during the build process, the RTE version corresponding to the Build Environment will be used.
  2. Make sure the entire application folder is copied over to the remote computer.  When an application is built with debugging enabled, an INI file is created in this folder with a special line that enables the remote debugging server.
  3. The NI Service Locator needs to be running on the remote computer to manage the dynamic port that the application will be using. Navigating to http://localhost:3580/dumpinfo? in a browser on the remote computer should show you the current status. If the browser returns “Page not Found”, the service locator may not be running. If this is the case, follow the instructions to start the NI Service Locator.
  4. The NI Service Locator requires that port 3580 is open for incoming communication. If you are using a firewall, you may need to ensure that this port is added as an exception.
