TC-08 and 64-bit LabVIEW

Post by otammer » Fri May 23, 2014 2:41 pm

Hi Everyone -

I'm struggling to get the TC-08 examples to work in 64-bit LabVIEW 2013. I've read through all of the ~15 TC-08 topics here, to no avail :?.

The examples load and display UIs, but I can't run them because I get 22 errors for usbtc08.vi like:
- Call Library Function Node: Function not found in library
- Call Library Function Node 'Close unit': Function not found in library
- Call Library Function Node 'usbtc08.dll:_usb_tc08_get_single@16': Function not found in library

I'm using LV for the first week, and would appreciate any pointers you have.

Thanks!
Olev

Hi Olev,

The issue can be that you have not moved the correct drivers into the LabVIEW resource folder.

Or you may have to link driver again to the examples.

Please read http://www.picotech.com/support/topic12601.html.
This should outline how to get started with the examples.

Thanks,

Hi Karunen -

Thanks for your reply...

I already had the following files in the C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2013\resource directory: usbtc08.dll, USBTC08.lib, and SelectTC08.llb. Is this what you meant by the 'correct drivers'?

If so, what did you mean by 'link driver again to the examples'?

Thanks,
Olev

Hi Olev,

In the SDK there is an x64 folder inside there you will find the usbtc08.dll which needs to be moved into the C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2013\resource directory.

If you go into the vi and double click on

You should get this pop up
Call_Library_Function.png
Call_Library_Function.png (69.5 KiB) Viewed 2649 times
If you click on the little folder icon go into your LabVIEW resource directory and select the usbtc08.dll,
this will link the drivers to the examples.

Thanks,
