I recently upgraded to LabVIEW 8.0 and now I keep losing the connection to my [c]FP-2000 or [c]FP-2010 sometimes with an error message
After installing LabVIEW 8.0 and FieldPoint 5.0, the software on the device must be updated. When updating the software, if the shared variable engine is installed you will start to experience connectivity problems. This is because the [c]FP-2000 only has 16 MB of memory which is insufficient to run the shared variable engine. This issue has also been seen with FP-2010.
To uninstall the shared variable engine, please perform the following:
2. Expand the tree under your [c]FP-20xx, right-click on Software and select Add/Remove Software.
3. In the window that appears, select the Network Variable Engine.
4. Select Uninstall this Feature.
5. Click Next.
2. Reset the controller.
3. FTP onto the controller.
4. Select and delete all files.
5. Set the controller’s safe mode dip switch to off.
6. Reset the controller.
