How to use the LabVIEW demos

Module by: Prashant Singh. E-mail the author

Summary: Explains what a user needs to do in order to make use of the interactive LabVIEW-based examples.


The information in this module is outdated, as it describes the process for viewing content from LabView 7. Please see Viewing Embedded LabView Content for the latest information about viewing LabView 8 content.

Here are some instructions on how to install the necessary programs for using the LabVIEW-based interactive examples. You will need the Connexions virunner helper application and the LabVIEW 7 Run-Time Engine. Once you have everything set up, you should be able to click on the "Run" link of the examples, and the helper app will run the demonstration for you.


If you are running Windows and do not have either LabVIEW 7 or the LabVIEW 7 Run-Time Engine, download the first package which contains both (most people should select this item). If you already happen to have LabVIEW 7 or the LabVIEW 7 Run-Time Engine, download the second version


If you are running Linux on a PC, then you can use this RPM package to install the Connexions virunner helper application. You will also need to have your browser associate the MIME-type application/x-labview-viinfo (extension .viinfo) with the program The helper application requires your system to have Python.

If you do not have LabVIEW 7 or the LabVIEW 7 Run-Time Engine, then you also need the Run-Time Engine RPM package.

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
