Migrating LabVIEW Source Code to LabVIEW NXG

Last Modified: March 30, 2017

Source code migration to LabVIEW NXG involves generating equivalent source code in LabVIEW NXG using source code from a supported version of LabVIEW.

The Code Conversion Utility in LabVIEW NXG supports conversion of code from the following versions of LabVIEW:
  • LabVIEW 2014
  • LabVIEW 2015
  • LabVIEW 2016
  • LabVIEW 2017

Migrate your code using the following process:

  1. Prepare your code for conversion—Ensure your source code runs as expected to reduce the number of issues to address in your new files after conversion.
  2. Convert your code—Use the Code Conversion Utility to generate new project files, VIs, and directories from your existing source code.
  3. Resolve changes in the converted code Use the report generated by the Code Conversion Utility to identify and resolve behavioral changes and unsupported features in your new source files.

If the source code contains features that are not supported in LabVIEW NXG, you may have to modify your new code during migration to replicate the behavior of the original code. If key features of your source code are not supported in LabVIEW NXG, you can use interoperability nodes to call code directly from the original LabVIEW product into LabVIEW NXG.
