To execute a simulation on a real-time (RT) target, you must create a project. A project provides a way to manage VIs, RT targets, dependencies, build specifications, and other files related to the project. Use the Project Explorer window, available by selecting File»New Project, to manage the contents of a project.

Another component of a real-time simulation is the shared variable. You create shared variables to simplify the process of sharing live data between the computer running Windows and the RT target.

For more information about the LabVIEW project and the shared variable, including tutorials that introduce you to these concepts, refer to the Getting Started with the LabVIEW Real-Time Module document, located in the labview\manuals directory.
