Issue Details

I am looking for the Event Messenger template and pallet that ships with LabVIEW as of LabVIEW 2017. Where are these resources located?


The template can be found through the NI Example Finder. You can access the NI Example Finder by navigating to Help » Find Examples. Then, select browse according to: Directory Structure, and navigate to Channels » Event Messenger. 

To quickly access the Event Messenger palette, you will need to add it to your functions palette. 

Navigate to Tools » Advanced » Edit Palette Set...

On the Functions Palette that appears, right click and select Insert » Subpalette.

Select Link to a directory

The Event Messenger VIs can be found at C:\Users\[YourName]\Documents\LabVIEW Data\2017(32-bit)\ExtraVILib\ChannelInstances.

After saving your changes, you will have access to the Event Messenger palette!
