How do I run a LabVIEW program on my cDAQ controller?


The cDAQ controller behaves like a normal computer. You can run a LabVIEW application on the cDAQ controller with a couple methods:
  1. Create an executable (if you have LabVIEW Professional or Application Builder) and run it on the cDAQ controller with the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine. You can do this by moving the executable and putting it on the cDAQ controller with the Run-Time Engine and opening and running the executable.
  2. Install LabVIEW on the cDAQ controller, and run your LabVIEW program on there (it is recommended not to actually develop LabVIEW code on the cDAQ controller due to storage capacity and speed)

Additional Information

Although you can install the LabVIEW development environment on a cDAQ controller it is recommended to use the development environment on another development computer and deploy your code to the cDAQ controller with the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine due to storage capacity.
