Issue Details

I am using the LabVIEW's example called Axis Continuous Contour Move. When I run the example with a Simulated Axis it works properly but when I use a real axis in an RT target, it does not work anymore.
Why is this happening?

Solution

This might be happening because the Table Buffer does not have enough points at all time. This example in specific uses a table's size of 100 that works correctly in simulation but might fail when you take it to real hardware. 

Try increasing this value so the application doesn't run out of points to write to the contour move.

Additional Information

This is better explained in the Contour move help information. Check the note below Continuous section.
