This document contains the TestStand 3.5 known issues that were discovered before and since the release of TestStand 3.5. Not every issue known to NI will appear on this list; it is intended to only show the severe and more common issues that can be encountered.

TestStand includes the following behavior changes between version 3.1 and version 3.5.

The TestStand Deployment Utility no longer uses the Keywords, Author, Subject, and Comments options found in the Advanced Installer Options dialog box.

To select an instance VI within a polymorphic VI, you must configure the LabVIEW Adapter to use the LabVIEW development system in the LabVIEW Adapter Configuration dialog box. Previous versions of TestStand allowed you to select a polymorphic VI when the LabVIEW Adapter was configured to use the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine.

Alternatively, you can select the instance VI directly when the LabVIEW Adapter is configured to use the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine.
