ID Known Issue
187772

Return
Performance of AD* VI slows over time
If significant changes occur to the map the AD* VI operates on and the VI is configured to mange the epsilon value automatically, the VI runs significantly slower over time.

Workaround: Try one of the following:
  • Set the 'overhaul' Boolean input to TRUE periodically to discard old state data that might no longer be relevant and to increase epsilon again.
  • Use the 'epsilon' input to directly control the value of epsilon and balance the speed of the VI versus the quality of the path that the VI calculates.

207367

Return
Starter Kit will reboot constantly if LabVIEW 2009 is not installed and no DHCP server is available
If the Starter Kit is configured to obtain an IP address via DHCP and there is no DHCP server available then its behaviour is as follows:

If LabVIEW 2009 is installed on the sbRIO: the network uses a private IP in 169.254.x.x range
If LabVIEW 2009 is not installed on the sbRIO: the network fails to obtain an IP address and reboots

Workaround: Setting the IP reset dip switch and rebooting will force the IP address to 0.0.0.0. Allow at least 15 seconds for the network to be initialized before switching the IP reset switch off. Then use the Hardware Setup Wizard or MAX as usual.

356420

Return
Robotics Wizard cannot load a manifest file in a folder with a Chinese character in the name
Robotics Wizard cannot load a manifest file in a folder with a Chinese character in the name

Workaround: Move the manifest file to a new location

Reported Version: 2012    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 07/13/2012
406186

Return
Error -2147220308 in Hardware Setup Wizard when Connecting to Zynq Target
Zynq targets require all web features to be installed to be recognized by the Hardware Setup Wizard. If a Zynq target has been reformatted these features will removed, and error -2147220308 will be thrown in the Hardware Setup Wizard

Workaround: In NI MAX install all web features and then restart the target.

Reported Version: 2013    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/09/2013
410068

Return
Hardware Setup Wizard has Slow Target Discovery Time
It can take much longer to discover targets in the Hardware Setup Wizard.

Workaround: See KB (6B0A80QB): Long Target Search Time in Robotics Hardware Setup for 2013

Reported Version: 2013    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/09/2013
414047

Return
LabVIEW Crash if Project is Closed before Robotics Simulator is Stopped
If a VI is still running that uses the Robotics Simulator, and the LabVIEW Project is closed, LabVIEW will crash.

Workaround: Avoid closing the project while running the simulation service.

Reported Version: 2012 SP1    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 08/09/2013
394897

Return
NI MAX Does Not Detect Starter Kit 2.0 when Hardware Setup Wizard has Found Target
Hardware Setup Wizard locks target when it is discovered in step 3. NI MAX will not be able to discover the locked target if it has not already discovered the target in the past.

Workaround: Do not connect to target with NI MAX and Hardware Setup Wizard at the same time.

Reported Version: 2013    Resolved Version: N/A    Added: 06/23/2014
