TestStand Debug Deployment Environment License
The TestStand Debug Deployment Environment License gives you maximum flexibility for deploying TestStand and LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, and Measurement Studio-based systems. This license allows you to install the development versions of TestStand, LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, and Measurement Studio, along with any corresponding add-on toolkits, so that you can debug your test application on your deployed test station. This license does not allow the ability to perform any development tasks within the TestStand Sequence Editor or programmatically using the TestStand API. The TestStand Sequence Editor (SeqEdit.exe) can be used for debugging, not for development, when used with this license.
The TestStand Debug Deployment Environment License has debugging capabilities including settings breakpoints, monitoring variable values, and stepping into test code directly from the TestStand sequence.
Note: This license does not provide the software, but rather gives you the right to install previously purchased software on the target machine.
TestStand Base Deployment Engine License
The TestStand Base Deployment Engine License is the minimum license required for all deployed TestStand-based applications. This license allows you to deploy the TestStand Engine, a TestStand Operator Interface and TestStand sequence files to the single test station for which the license is applicable.
The Base Deployment Engine License does not allow you to use the sequence editor provided with TestStand (SeqEdit.exe).
There are a couple of ways to execute your sequences:
- Create your own User Interface to call the TestStand API.
- Use pre-built User Interfaces provided with TestStand (Start » All Programs » National Instruments » TestStand » User Interfaces). The provided interfaces are created in different programming languages, and their source code is available in the TestStand directory.
LabVIEW does not require you to purchase any run-time licenses for a deployment system. You can even run LabVIEW VIs in VI format (not executables) from TestStand without using the development environment and without an additional license.
In order to run LabWindows/CVI code modules, you will need the LabWindows/CVI Run-Time engine, which is also available free of charge.
