ID Known Issue
Controls and Indicators
160961

Return
Can't cancel the configure jump button dialog when you first place a jump button
When initially placing a jump button, the dialog cannot be cancelled.

Workaround: N/A

Reported Version: 2009    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/03/2009
166677

Return
Clusters appear different in 8.2.1
Clusters look different in 8.2.1 than they do in 8.6.1.

Workaround: N/A

Reported Version: 8.6.1    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/03/2009
184316

Return
Controls and indicators behind Tab control show through the tab control on CE touch panels
If you have controls or indicators behind a tab control on a front panel of a touch panel VI the indicators and controls show through the tab control when running.

Workaround: Place controls that you want to be behind the tab control on a different tab.

Reported Version: 2009    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/03/2010
186764

Return
Digital Display does not show up on CE touch panel
Digital displays do not show up for numeric slides, thermometer, tank, gauge, meter, knob, and progress bars. On the dial and meter controls the ramp will also not be displayed.

Workaround: Add a Numeric Indicator and connect it to show the digital value.

Reported Version: 2009    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/03/2010
Miscellaneous
222189

Return
Histogram not supported on Touch Panels. Documentation doesn't state this.
Histograms are not mentioned in the limitations of graphs in the touch panel documentation

Workaround: N/A

Reported Version: 2009    Resolved Version: 2011    Added: 02/10/2011
Operating System Specific
226990

Return
pput.exe has stopped working error on Vista when attempting to debug CE application
When running the Debug application using TCP/IP interface test and attempting to debug the application by right clicking on the build specification and selecting debug, an error occurs stating pput.exe has stopped working.

Workaround: N/A

Reported Version: 2010 32-bit    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/03/2010
Performance
179808

Return
Touch Panel applications on Windows CE do not execute shared resources in round robin fashion
When calling a shared resource from more than one loop, that resource is not executed in a round robin fashion. This could lead to unexpected behavior while the loops wait for the resource.

Workaround: Use reentrant subVIs when waiting on Queues, TCP/IP reads, etc. If these VIs are non reentrant, they will become a blocking shared resource. Have waits in a loop that are longer than the execution time of the code in that loop even if it shouldn't be necessary as in the case of Queues.

Reported Version: 2009    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/03/2009
Shared Variables
177101

Return
Variables from unsaved libraries in Touch Panel Applications on Windows CE will cause a build error
Adding variables from unsaved libraries to a Touch Panel application on Windows CE will cause a build error when building.

Workaround: Save the library before building the application
