  • Did I install everything?

    So I am the chief programmer of our team, I have installed all of the programs in the NetBook they gave us at the Kick-Off, but I think I am missing some crucial part of the software, the part that allows LabView to program the cRIO. Does anyone have a list of all that must be installed in the NetBook or know what I did wrong?

    This is our first FRC Competition, so we do not have much experience.

    In the kit of parts, there should be an envelope with labview printed on it. In there will be a DVD that if you use the classmate pc (netbook) to program the robot you may have to install labview on it. Since the classmate does not have a cd/dvd drive you will need to use another computer to copy the dvd contents onto a flash drive large enough so you can install from there.

    If you have the resources I would recommend installing labview on a different computer from the classmate/driver station. The larger screen on the other pc will make programming easier.

    If you do not have other laptop/desktop resources, the classmate/driver station will work.

    Note: On the envelope, and on a piece of paper in the envelope is a license (serial number) code you will need to enter during the setup process.

    Hopefully this will help you get started!
