Issue Details

I want to use the LabVIEW DIAdem Connectivity VIs for LabVIEW version 2009 or later.  How do I install the VIs?

Solution

Starting with LabVIEW 2009, the LabVIEW DIAdem Connectivity VIs will no longer ship with an installer. Instead, the following procedure can be used to install the LabVIEW DIAdem Connectivity VIs for any LabVIEW version starting with 2009. If there are multiple versions of LabVIEW installed, note that this must be done for each installation on the PC.
  1. Close LabVIEW if it is already open.
     
  2. Download the self-extracting executable file, LabVIEW DIAdem Connectivity VIs 3.0.2.exe.
     
  3. Copy or move the self-extracting executable file, LabVIEW DIAdem Connectivity VIs 3.0.2.exe, to your LabVIEW installation directory.  This is usually located at <Program Files>\National Instruments\LabVIEW XXXX.
     
  4. Double-click the self-extracting executable file, LabVIEW DIAdem Connectivity VIs 3.0.2.exe, to start the file extraction process.  The executable will automatically extract the necessary files into the appropriate LabVIEW directories.
     
  5. Launch LabVIEW.
     
  6. You can find the LabVIEW DIAdem Connectivity VIs on the Connectivity » DIAdem palette of the Block Diagram.

Note: The absence of an installer for the LabVIEW DIAdem Connectivity VIs also means that there is no longer an uninstaller. To uninstall the LabVIEW DIAdem Connectivity VIs, please manually delete all copied files from the locations listed in the attached readme.txt file.

Additional Information

From LabVIEW 2010 / DIAdem 2010 the LabVIEW DIAdem Connectivity VIs are no longer supported. Please use the LabVIEW TDMS VIs to easily store and retrieve measurement data streams. Please use the DIAdem ActiveX interface to launch and control a DIAdem application from LabVIEW for interactive data analysis and report generation. The DIAdem example "Controlling DIAdem from LabVIEW" shows how to.
