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?


There might be incorrect installation sequence when installing the required software, make sure to follow the installation sequence below:

  1. LabVIEW
  2. LabVIEW Real-Time Module
  3. VeriStand (Matching year with LabVIEW)
  4. CompactRIO Drivers
  5. C/C++ Development Tools for NI Linux Real-Time, Eclipse Edition
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.
