  • LabWindows/CVI

When creating a LabWindows/CVI program that logs messages, users are able to configure what information gets logged, how it gets logged, and where it gets logged when running LabWindows/CVI.

After following the steps in this article, you will be able to enable/disable LabWindows/CVI logging, specify what types of messages are logged, specify the log output location, and configure the log message format for both the LabWindows/CVI development environment and runtime engine.

  1. Check to ensure that LabWindows/CVI is not running on your machine.
  2. Navigate to ConfigCVILogging.exe and run the application. This is a separate application where logging settings are configured which installs with LabWindows/CVI. The directory containing this application is as follows:
    • 32-bit installations: C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\CVI <version>\bin\ConfigCVILogging.exe
    • 64-bit installations: C:\Program Files\National Instruments\CVI <version>\bin\ConfigCVILogging.exe
  3. Use the dialog to configure your LabWindows/CVI logging settings.
