Why does my Real-Time Executable Fail if it's Programmatically Transferred via the FTP VIs?
Primary Software Version: 8.6
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: N/A
I've built my Real-Time (RT) executable (startup.rtexe) and can deploy it from my project without errors. It runs correctly on my target. However, when I use the FTP VIs, which are a part of the Internet Toolkit, to transfer the RT executable, it won't work. Why?
At least two items need to be taken into account when programmatically sending an RT startup executable to your RT controller over FTP.
