Issue Details

I have created an IVI logical name in NI-MAX. I now want LabVIEW to programmatically detect all available IVI logical names. How can I do this?

Solution

There is an XML file that stores all IVI configuration data, including logical names. It has following path:

C:\ProgramData\IVI Foundation\IVI\IviConfigurationStore.xml




You can load this file into LabVIEW and extract the logical names using XML parsing in LabVIEW.
