However, if a VI contains platform-specific features, such as .NET or ActiveX, you cannot move it between platforms. Refer to the Porting VIs among Platforms topic in the LabVIEW Help for more information about the platform-specific features that prevent you from moving a VI between operating systems. This help topic also includes information about workarounds where they are available.
Not all hardware drivers are supported on all platforms. Therefore, NI recommends that you make sure the required drivers for your hardware are supported in the operating system before you move your application to a different operating system. For example, applications developed using DAQmx 9.8 are not compatible on Linux or OS X. The application would need to be modified to use the DAQmx Base 3.7 driver. Additionally, it is important to consider that these two drivers do not support all of the same hardware, so moving an application from one operating system to another may require different hardware. You should always consult the README for the device driver to confirm its compatibility with devices and operating systems.
