LV RT Linux x86 (cDAQ-9133)

Installed latest RTI-DDS for LV using VIPM into my LV2016.  Went to add the realtime software on my target using MAX but no RTI software shown as available.  I assumed VIPM would put all the required files in the correct folders so that MAX could find them but this does not seem to be the case.  Please advise, thanks.

Hi Sachsm

cDAQ boards are not officially supported by RTI. That means that RTI has not tested the DDS Toolkit on it and cannot guarantee it works. However that doesn't mean it won't work, just it has not been tested. You can modify the rtilvdds-linux-x64intel.cdf file in the folder <LabVIEW installation>\RT Images\RTI DDS Toolkit\<RTI DDS Toolkit version> to make it work. Just add another DEVICECLASS field with value cDAQ. Like this:

<DEVICECLASS VALUE="cDAQ" />

in the IMPLEMENTATION section. So will look like this:

[...]
<IMPLEMENTATION>
<DEVICECLASS VALUE="cDAQ" />
<DEVICECLASS VALUE="cRIO" />
[...]

And as far as you have NI Linux (64 bits) on your board NI MAX will allow you to install it. Please note that you do this at your own risk and RTI doesn't provide any support or warranty.
