Issue Details

When I create a VeriStand model with LabVIEW for a NI Linux Real-Time (LinuxRT) target, I get Error Code -4500. What can I do to fix this error?


Before installing the VeriStand LabVIEW Models for NI Linux Real-Time Targets software, there are drivers and modules that you must first download and install on your computer. The software needed is the LabVIEW Real-Time Module, CompactRIO drivers, NI VeriStand, and C/C++ Development Tools for Linux. After successfully installing these dependencies, you will be able to export a VeriStand model in LabVIEW for a Linux RT target.

Additional Information

  • Normally, an exported model has the format .lvmodel. For a Linux target, the format is .lvmodelso.
  • Before exporting the model, first check there is no model with the same name in the destination folder. If there is already a model (even in a different format), you export will not success.
  • Check if all the software needed are correctly licensed.
