LabVIEW RT Memory Usage on FieldPoint Controllers

Overview

The following tables show two possible software configurations for each of the four versions of the LabVIEW Real-Time Module. For each software configuration, the tables list the amount of storage space required for installation and the amount of memory used when the software is launched. For the amount of storage space and memory on your controller, refer to the controller specifications linked below. For other possible software configurations that can work on your controller, refer to Knowledge Base 3JHCMAHL: What Versions of Software Drivers Can Be Installed With My FieldPoint CD?

Note that this article replaces KnowledgeBase 4EGFP8XD: LabVIEW RT Memory Usage on FieldPoint Controllers. Some NI manuals may still reference the previous document. If you were redirected from the previous KnowledgeBase URL, please update your bookmarks accordingly.
