Issue Details

I install NI VeriStand add-ons on TestStand, which is downloaded from Github.  But I cannot find them in the insertion palette in TestStand. Why?

Solution

You can debug with the following steps:
  1. Right Click on Insertion palette-choose Customize, then find NI VeriStand folder-Ensure that Hide option is not marked.
  2. Reinstall the add-on.
  3. Copy NI_VeristandTypes.ini as well as its lib file (ni-veristand-steps-runtimes-lib.lib) to C:\Users\Public\Documents\National Instruments\TestStand 20XX\Components\TypePalettes folder from another PC.

Additional Information

You can check the step types of your sequence by click View>>Types, then you can check out that .ini file.
 

The old add-ons are not supported by NI R&D anymore. You can choose ASAM XIL step instead for 2019 version or later.
