Error 550 When Trying to Delete Real-Time Executable



Primary Software: LabVIEW Modules>>LabVIEW Real-Time Module
Primary Software Version: 8.5
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: N/A

Problem:
I created a real-time executable using LabVIEW Real-Time (RT) targeted to my RT hardware and placed it in the /ni-rt/startup directory. When I FTP to that directory and try to delete the .rtexe file, I receive the following error:

The remote server returned an error: (550) File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access).



How can I remove the file?

Solution:
This error is occurring because the program is loaded in memory of the system. You cannot delete the file while it is loaded in memory. Follow these steps to unload the program from memory and delete the file.

1. Right-click the executable in the project and select Undeploy. This unloads the program from memory.
2. FTP to the controller and delete the file.

If this is not possible, follow one of the methods mentioned in KnowledgeBase 23RHHT4U: How Can I Prevent a Real-Time Executable from Running at Startup to prevent the program from loading at boot.
