Return
Model time for an MDL is incorrect
Model time for an MDL is incorrect

Workaround: Use a Clock block wire to an outport in your model. Then use that output as the time.

241320

Return
Lvmodel fails to initialize with error 1003
When deploying a lvmodel to a target without LabVIEW Control Design and Simulation Module the model fails to initialize with error 1003.

Reported Version: 2010    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 09/17/2010
279698

Return
DAQ DO doesn't update if an FPGA personality is also present
When you have a system definition with both a DAQ and an FPGA card, the digital output of the DAQ board doesn't update.

Workaround: 1) Unset the FPGA board as chassis master. Visit the controller page and set it to auto-timing which will use the MHz timing source. 2) Include an AI or AO channel to the DAQ configuration
