Issue Details

I have an instrument driver that is currently in a LabWindows/CVI .fp file and I want to convert it to a VI to use this instrument driver in LabVIEW. I followed the steps listed on this tutorial. when I reached the section "Convert a Function Panel (.fp) file for Use within LabVIEW", I don't see the option "Import CVI Instrument Driver" at Tools>>Instrumentation in LabVIEW. 

Solution

If you don't see the "Import CVI Instrument Driver", it's probably due to a missing tool in LabVIEW. Make sure that you have installed the LabVIEW Instrument Driver Import Wizard on your computer.
