Actiview on a Mac

Post by tlorig » Mon Nov 07, 2011 5:42 pm

Just wondering about the progress related to Actiview on the mac? I have the drivers loaded and working. I've downloaded the vi and Labview's runtime engine for the mac...

Double clicking the vi just gets me to a screen requiring that I associate the .vi with some App and the runtime engine isn't available.

So...I'm guessing that someone with the full development system would need to compile the vi for operation with the runtime engine...

Am I correct and is this a possibility in the near future?

Many thanks,
Tyler

ActiView in Application (.app) version is now available from http://www.biosemi.com/download/LatestA ... 00-mac.zip
The app runs in combination with the (free) RunTimeEngine from http://download.ni.com/support/softlib/ ... Engine.dmg

The USB drivers for Mac are availble from http://www.biosemi.com/download/USB%20d ... rs_Mac.zip

Mac users with the LabVIEW programming environment (full development, version 8.6.1 or higher) can use the VI version (with complete open-source diagram) from http://www.biosemi.com/download/LatestA ... ctiMac.zip

[b]Thank you, Coen![/b] This is a huge help to me!

I'm working to get the software installed properly. Should the driver binaries go in the main /bin or can then go in the directory containing the ActiView700 files?

Thanks again!

It appears that LabVIEW automatically includes the USB drivers when building the App. So, Mac users running ActiView just need to install the RunTimeEngine, and run the App (no need to separately download the drivers). In the future, for Mac, only users who write their own software need to download the USB driver package.
