You can generate a C API for a LabVIEW FPGA application and develop your C application using LabWindows/CVI 9.0 or later.
The FPGA Interface C API installer installs the following items if you select LabWindows/CVI support during installation:
With LabWindows/CVI 2010 or later, you can launch the FPGA Interface C API Generator from LabWindows/CVI. With LabWindows/CVI 9.0 or later, you can launch the FPGA Interface C API Generator from the LabVIEW Project Explorer window, from the Windows Start menu, or from a Windows command line.
If you are using only LabWindows/CVI to develop your C application, you can exclude NiFpga.h and NiFpga.c from the files that you generate using the FPGA Interface C API Generator. The header and library files installed with LabWindows/CVI support make NiFpga.h and NiFpga.c unnecessary.
