Issue Details

I am missing section Real-time Scan resources on my LabVIEW project with an RT target added.

Why this section is not present?

Is this behavior expected?

Solution

 This section was introduced to distinguish the programming mode of C series modules under the Chassis on a cRIO target. Since the released of support for DAQmx on cRIOs (904x and 905x) the modules under the chassis can be either in Real-Time Scan or DAQmx . 

The support for DAQmx was introduced on cRIO device drivers 17.6 which supports at minimum LabVIEW 2017 SP1.
