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.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

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

Viewing Embedded LabVIEW Content

Module by: Matthew Hutchinson. E-mail the author

Summary: A step-by-step guide for installing the necessary software to view embedded LabVIEW content in Connexions.

In order to view LabVIEW content embedded in Connexions modules, you must install the LabVIEW Run-time Engine on your computer. The following are sets of instructions for installing the software on different platforms.

note:

Embedded LabVIEW content is currently supported only under Windows 2000/XP. Also, you must have version 8.0.1 of the LabView Run-time Engine to run much of the embedded content in Connexions.

Installing the LabVIEW Run-time Engine on Microsoft Windows 2000/XP

  1. Point your web browser to the LabVIEW Run-time Engine download page at: http://digital.ni.com/softlib.nsf/websearch/077b51e8d15604bd8625711c006240e7.
  2. If you're not logged in to NI, click the link to continue the download process at the bottom of the page.
  3. Login or create a profile with NI to continue.
  4. Once logged in, click the LabVIEW_8.0.1_Runtime_Engine.exe link and save the file to disk.
  5. Once the file has downloaded, double click it and follow the steps to install the run-time engine.
  6. Download the LabVIEW Browser Plug-in at: http://zone.ni.com/devzone/conceptd.nsf/webmain/7DBFD404C6AD0B24862570BB0072F83B/$FILE/LVBrowserPlugin.ini.
  7. Put the LVBrowserPlugin.ini file in the My Documents\LabVIEW Data folder. (You may have to create this folder if it doesn't already exist.)
  8. Restart your web browser to complete the installation of the plug-in.
