VeriStand Directories and Aliases

Last Modified: June 10, 2021

VeriStand uses directories and aliases for project files, models, and custom devices.

The following tables list paths to common VeriStand directories by operating system. The heading before each table indicates how NI documentation refers to the directory. For directories with aliases listed, the alias is the text that appears with a relative path in an API or XML file. This text defines the directory that the path is relative to.
