Adding a New C Series Module to a cRIO Project in LabVIEW

After creating a LabVIEW project including a cRIO target, I added an additional C Series module to the chassis.  Right now, I cannot see that module in the project.  How can I configure the project so that I can see my new module?

When you originally added the target to the project it went through a discovery mode to allow access to the C Series modules.  Since the new module was added after this initial discovery, you will need to add it in manually by doing the following:  

Right-click on the FPGA Target and select New » C Series Modules

Select Existing target or device and Expand the C Series Module folder.

Highlight any modules that are not in the project and click OK.

You should now see the added C Series Module in your project.

Additional Information

When adding modules to a cRIO project in Scan Mode please keep in mind that some modules require LabVIEW FPGA so you will not be able to add these specific modules to your project when in Scan Mode. To see which modules require LabVIEW FPGA please reference the C Series Compatibility Chart.
