Issue Details

I am trying to use the Real-Time Trace Viewer with my application. When I use TraceTool Stop Trace and, Real-Time Trace Viewer does not open the session. When I save the trace, the session opens but is blank. 


Try the following steps to resolve this issue: 

Test with an Example
  1. Confirm the Execution Systems.lvproj example runs on your RT system. 
    1. Open NI Example Finder from the LabVIEW Help tab. 
    2. Search execution in the Search tab. Select Execution Systems.lvproj
    3. Follow the instructions under the example Information section in NI Example Finder. 
  2. If Execution Systems.lvproj throws any errors or behaves unexpectedly, reformat the RT controller and reinstall the software
