You can debug stand-alone real-time applications that you create with the LabVIEW Application Builder from a remote host computer.

Complete the following steps to debug a stand-alone real-time application:

  1. Enable debugging in the build specification for the stand-alone real-time application by placing a checkmark in the Enable debugging checkbox on the Advanced page of the Real-Time Application Properties dialog box.
  2. Right-click the build specification for the stand-alone real-time application and select Build from the shortcut menu to build the application.
  3. Reboot the RT target to run the stand-alone real-time application.
  4. From the Project Explorer window, select Operate»Debug Application or Shared Library to display the Debug Application or Shared Library dialog box.
  5. Enter the IP address of the RT target in the Machine name or IP address text box. Click the Refresh button to view the list of stand-alone real-time applications that you can debug on the RT target.
  6. Select the stand-alone real-time application you want to debug.
  7. Click the Connect button to open the front panel window of the startup VI for debugging. Use the block diagram of the startup VI to debug the application using probes, breakpoints, and other debugging techniques.
  8. After you finish debugging, close the startup VI, which also closes the stand-alone real-time application on the RT target and then reboot the RT target to restart the stand-alone real-time application. If you want to disconnect without closing the startup VI, right-click the front panel window of the startup VI and select Remote Debugging»Quit Debug Session from the shortcut menu.
