This file contains important information about the LabVIEW 2009 Real-Time Module.
The Real-Time Module supports the following operating systems for application development:
Note The Real-Time Module does not support Windows NT/Me/9x. The Real-Time Module also does not support the Windows Server non-R2 editions.
You can install all of your LabVIEW products—including the LabVIEW Real-Time Module—using the LabVIEW 2009 Platform DVDs. You can find installation instructions for the Real-Time Module along with activation instructions in the following locations:
To request additional LabVIEW 2009 Platform DVDs, refer to the National Instruments Web site.
You must install LabVIEW 2009 before you install the LabVIEW Real-Time Module 2009.
Refer to the LabVIEW Real-Time Module Release and Upgrade Notes for more information about upgrade and compatibility issues, a list of new features, and installation instructions. The LabVIEW Real-Time Module Release and Upgrade Notes is included as a printed booklet with the kit. You also can access the LabVIEW Real-Time Module Release and Upgrade Notes by selecting Help»Search the LabVIEW Help in LabVIEW and navigating to the Real-Time Module»Real-Time Module Related Documentation topic on the Contents tab.
After you install the LabVIEW Real-Time Module 2009 on your development computer, you can complete the following steps to install and configure Japanese language support on an RT target.
Installing Language Support for Japanese does not enable Japanese language support within the RT target file system. You cannot use Japanese characters in directory names or file names on the RT target.
The LabVIEW Real-Time Module relies on licensing activation. You must activate a valid LabVIEW Real-Time Module license before you can run the LabVIEW Real-Time Module. To activate the LabVIEW Real-Time Module, use the serial number you received as part of your installation package.
Refer to the Activation Instructions for National Instruments Software for more information about licensing activation.
The Real-Time Module 2009 installs the following RT target operating systems. Refer to the specific RT target hardware documentation for information about which real-time operating system your RT target uses.
The Real-Time Module supports only a subset of the features that the ETS and VxWorks operating systems support. Refer to the Real-Time Module book on the Contents tab in the LabVIEW Help for information about features that the Real-Time Module supports.
Refer to the LabVIEW Real-Time Module Release and Upgrade Notes for information about upgrade and compatibility issues. The LabVIEW Real-Time Module Release and Upgrade Notes is included as a printed booklet with the kit.
