Use the Write Filters VIs to protect volumes from unwanted modifications.


Write filters protect data by redirecting write operations to another location or overlay. Refer to the MSDN Web site at msdn.microsoft.com to learn more about write filters.

  • You must install the same version of the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine on the development computer and the touch panel device to use the Write Filters VIs.
  • National Instruments recommends that you update the operating system before you enable write filters. Otherwise, the Windows Update service may interfere when you restart the computer for write filter changes to take effect.
Enhanced Write Filter VIsUse the Enhanced Write Filter (EWF) VIs to protect a volume from modifications.
File-Based Write Filter VIsUse the File-Based Write Filter (FBWF) VIs to protect files and folders in a volume from modifications. You specify files and folders you do not want to protect by adding them to the FBWF protection exclusion list.


Refer to the Windows Embedded Enabling Features.lvproj in the labview\examples\TouchPanel\Windows Embedded Enabling Features directory for an example of using the Write Filters VIs.
