This book contains step-by-step instructions to help you get started with the Desktop Execution Trace Toolkit by using the LabVIEW example project Desktop Execution Trace Toolkit.lvproj in the labview\examples\Desktop Execution Trace directory. This tutorial assumes you have fundamental knowledge about using LabVIEW.

Benefits of Using the Desktop Execution Trace Toolkit

Debugging and optimizing applications may be tedious, time-consuming, and expensive. Even if code is syntactically correct and functionally complete, the code may still contain problems. Such problems as reference leaks can impact performance or lead to incorrect or unexpected behaviors. These oversights can be difficult to reproduce and even more difficult to locate, especially in large and complex applications.

The Desktop Execution Trace Toolkit can provide details about execution events that LabVIEW generates when executing an application and the context in which events occur. Use this toolkit to:

  • reduce the time to track down undesirable behaviors
  • detect memory and reference leaks
  • isolate the source of a specific event
  • identify the last call before an error
  • ensure that the execution of an application is the same on different targets
