  Compatible Version


If you have LabVIEW Real-Time 6.0 or 6.1 installed on the controller, NI recommends that you upgrade to version 6.1.3 or later.  Versions 6.1.3 and later are available on the FieldPoint 4.1 CD. For version 6.1.1 and earlier, contact NI.

LabVIEW Real-Time 7.1 or later requires MAX 3.1or later and must be installed using MAX.  Refer to the Using the LabVIEW Real-Time Software Wizard topic in the Remote Systems help.  To begin this Wizard, click the + next to the controller you wish to use under Remote Systems.  Then right-click Software and select Add/Remove Software.  This will initialize the LabVIEW Real-Time Software Wizard.
