Issue Details

I need to run a library compiled for Linux RT within LabVIEW RT. The library is closed source so I cannot recompile it. How can I run this library in LabVIEW?

Solution

There is a way to redirect the system calls without recompiling. Provided your processors match, step 6 and onwards in the Integrating C Code with LabVIEW on NI Linux Real-Time Targets tutorial will explain the steps you need to take.
