Issue Details

I have a red communications light on my roboRIO and a red Robot Code light on the FRC Driver Station. It says it is deploying correctly in LabVIEW for FRC , but the red lights indicate it isn't. How do I fix this?

Solution

Make sure you are deploying your code correctly in LabVIEW for FRC, by following the steps below.
  1. In the Project Explorer, click the + next to Build Specifications to expand it.
  2. Right-click on FRC Robot Boot-up Deployment and select Build. Wait for the build to complete.
  3. Right-click again on FRC Robot Boot-Up Deployment and select Run as Startup. If you receive a conflict dialog, click OK. This dialog simply indicates that there is currently a program on the roboRIO which will be terminated/replaced.
  4. Either check the box to close the deployment window on successful completion or click the close button when the deployment completes.
  5. The roboRIO will automatically start running the deployed code within a few seconds of the dialog closing.
