NI Real-Time Hypervisor 3.0 includes the following new features to help you develop and run LabVIEW and LabVIEW Real-Time applications on a single controller:

Support for Windows 7

Hypervisor 2.1 supported only Windows XP. Hypervisor 3.0 supports both Windows XP and Windows 7.

Setting the Default Boot Mode and Timeout for the NI Real-Time Hypervisor Boot Menu

In Hypervisor 2.1, you could not set the default boot mode or timeout for the NI Real-Time Hypervisor boot menu. In Hypervisor 3.0, you can use the NI Real-Time Hypervisor Manager to set the default boot Mode and timeout to select either Windows or NI Real-Time Hypervisor to boot by default, or to extend the timeout allowed for changing the Boot Mode.

Creating and Saving the Real-Time OS on a File Stored in Windows

In Hypervisor 2.1, a second, FAT-formatted partition was required to boot the real-time OS in NI Real-Time Hypervisor mode. In Hypervisor 3.0, you can use the NI Real-Time Hypervisor Manager to create and set a virtual disk that saves the real-time OS on a file stored in Windows.

Viewing RT Target Status and Console Output using the NI Real-Time Hypervisor Virtual Console

Hypervisor 2.1 required a terminal emulator program such as HyperTerminal to display RT target status and console output. In Hypervisor 3.0, you can use the NI Real-Time Hypervisor Virtual Console to view the hostname, IP address, serial number, and system state of the RT target, as well as the console output, which prints error and warning messages.

Forcing the Real-Time OS to Boot into Safe Mode from the NI Real-Time Hypervisor Boot Menu

In Hypervisor 2.1, forcing the real-time OS to boot into Safe Mode required modifying the BIOS boot options. In Hypervisor 3.0, you can select the boot option NI Real-Time Hypervisor [SAFE-MODE] from the NI Real-Time Hypervisor boot menu to force the real-time OS to boot into Safe Mode.
