Issue Details

When I open the functions palette on VI below my target (compactRIO, PXI, Smart Camera), the palette appears without any function on it. The same issue does not occurs on a My Computer's VI.

How can I solve that?

Solution

If you target/hardware runs a Real-time operating system, the main reason for that would be you do not have the NI Real-time Module installed or activated in your computer. To solve that:
  • Open the NI License Manager;
  • Check if the NI Real-time Module is installed and activated, as showed below;


NOTE: THE COLOR GREEN INDICATES THE SOFTWARE IS ACTIVATED
