The method of restoration differs depending on the operating system of the target. Please refer to Real-Time Controllers and Real-Time Operating System Compatibility to determine which operating system each real-time target is running.This article is focused on LabVIEW Real-Time Targets (Phar Lap and VxWorks), please consult the following if you have another device:
