Problem Description :
I am trying to build a stand alone application using the USB-6008 as the ADC for the system. Actually, I have two of them running in parallel to give me 16 channels.
The target CPU is an Athena II (a Pentium II running at 500 MHz with a 4 GB flash drive as the hard drive).
I have been unable to achieve a successful stand-alone application build.
1 - make the .exe in the LabVIEW project builder.
2 - make an installer for the target system. I have checked the following additional installers: LabVIEW Run Time Engine 8.2; NI-DAQmx 8.3; NI-IMAQ 3.7; NI-VISA Runtime 4.0.
The LabVIEW application is being developed on an identical CPU to the target system. The only difference is that the development system has a 16 GB hard drive and the LabVIEW 8.2 FDS installed. On the development system, everything works fine.
I even went back and removed all of the stand-alone installation components on the target system and started over by (1) installing the drivers that came with the USB-6008 and then reloading the install for the application over this.
When I plug the 6008 into the USB port, the test panel for Dev 1 is usable and automatically comes up. I cannot seem to get to the test panel for Dev 2 (they are both plugged in at the same time due to the USB plug configuration on the Athena).
I tried accessing the devices using MAX on the target system. However, MAX goes away on the target system as soon as I try to investigate the Devices and Interfaces menu. I even did a refresh within MAX on the target system but it will not behave. On the development system, MAX works as expected.
Bottom line: am I including the proper installers to address the problem with the USB6007 or am I missing something here?
