Issue Details

How can I create VeriStand Custom Device that can be deployed to Real Time Target?

Solution

If you have an existing Custom Device LabVIEW project
The custom devices created using shipping Custom Device Template Tool can be deployed to PXI Pharlap target without modification. If you wish to deploy to cRIO or PXI Linux RT, follow the instructions in How to run a custom device on target RT Linux to modify LabVIEW project and XML file.

If you are going to create from scratch
Use NI VeriStand Custom Device Project Wizard to create LabVIEW project that contains PXI and cRIO (VxWorks & Linux) Real-Time targets. A consolidated version of this wizard is available at Github.

Additional Information

NI PXI Linux RT is running 64-bit NI Linux RT. It can use the same LLB file compiled for cRIO running 64-bit NI Linux RT (Linux_x64). You do not have to create a PXI Linux RT target explicitly.
