Missing DeviceNet VIs in LabVIEW

  • LabVIEW

Driver

  • NI-Industrial Communications for DeviceNet

Issue Details

I have installed LabVIEW and NI-Industrial Communications for DeviceNet, however I cannot find the DeviceNet VIs in LabVIEW. In addition, when I open an existing project I developed on another machine or with a different version of LabVIEW, I am missing dependencies related to the DeviceNet VIs. How can I fix this?

Solution

This is most likely caused by incompatibilities between the version of LabVIEW and NI-Industrial Communications for DeviceNet:
  • Ensure that you installed NI-Industrial Communications for DeviceNet after LabVIEW.
  • NI-Industrial Communications for DeviceNet is usually backwards compatible for a couple versions of LabVIEW.
  • NI-Industrial Communications for DeviceNet is only compatible with 32-bit LabVIEW. This is displayed in the readme for each version of the driver.
