You can access system tree objects such as shared or network variables from outside the System Manager environment. Use the network path for a system tree object to access that object from another environment.

The network path to shared or network variables consists of the system name, the name of the process in which the shared variable resides, and the shared variable name: \\system\process\variable. For example, the network path \\system1\myprocess\myvariable identifies a shared variable named myvariable in the process named myprocess on a system named system1.

You can determine the network path using the Probe view for any system tree object. The Location field displays the network path for the selected object.

Note Note  Refer to the LabVIEW Help, NI Measurement Studio Help, or LabWindows/CVI Help for more information about accessing shared or network variables created or modified with the System Manager from other applications.
