Issue Details

I am trying to run my application as a startup executable on my PXI Real-time target. I have created a Build Specification, clicked on "Run as startup" and confirmed that the PXI reboots.

The PXI reboots without errors, but my executable is not running.


RealTime PXI controllers have a BIOS option and a DIP-switch you can use to prevent a startup VI from running.
  1. Connect a monitor and a keyboard to your PXI controller
  2. Boot the controller and press <Del> to enter the BIOS
  3. Go to the LabVIEW RT tab and check if the startup VI is disabled
Refer to the manual of the PXI controller for the location of the hardware switch on the controller.
