I looked at your program and it seems that you just need to set up your path correctly. It looks as though you are trying to save the file to a host PC (not the RT) unit. This cannot be done by simply addressing C:\..\.. You must think of the RT unit as a computer in and of itself. Therefore, to save a file on a host machine would require a network address. Something like <a href="file://\\ComputerName\SharedFolder" target="_blank">\\ComputerName\SharedFolder</a>. If you simply put C:\testdata.lvm it will save locally to the RT unit which you could access by FTP to the module. Trying formulating the path in such a way that it addresses the destination like a network path. Sincerely, Rick Kuhlman National Instruments Applications Engineer
I am running labview 8.2 on Fedora 7 Core. I have also installed it on an earlier version of fedora that was in line with the supported red hat distribution. The problem is that when I try to use the Write Measurement File express VI, the binary file option becomes greyed out after the dialog box opens up. It is present for a second but it is impossible to select. When I have tried bringing over a vi written in Windows (where the binary option was available), the option is also disabled. I am trying to avoid writing the file out in lower level code since I want to use the auto file name generation available under the express VI. If any body knows a workaround or has some sample code that writes out a new file for each measurement with the date and time in the filename let me know. Thanks
Hi I am experiencing problems when trying to write data out from a device. Currently it appears as though it is trying to take 200 readings per while loop cycle which is far too many samples a second. Is there any way of actualy limiting the number of readings taken to 3/4 or so as 200 is far too many Regards Mark
