Issue Details

I'm working my way through this article, and I noticed that I'm missing some of the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) VIs in my Robot Main. The VIs I'm missing are highlighted in the image below:

How do I add those VIs back into my code?

Solution

If you're missing one or both of the highlighted VIs:
  1. Close all applications on your computer.
  2. Download and unzip the file attached to this document.
  3. Merge these VIs into your existing LabVIEW library by copying the included vi.lib folder over the C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2018\vi.lib folder on your system.
  4. Open a new robot project- the VIs should appear in the new Robot Main. 

Additional Information

When you run the default robot project alongside the default dashboard, you should be able to see images stream from the camera on your robot to your dashboard without making any modifications to code. If this is not working, please follow the steps in this article.
