What Viewing Options in the Web Publishing Tool are Supported with Real-Time Targets?

Primary Software:
Primary Software Version: 8.2
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: N/A

I am using LabVIEW Real-Time (RT) and want to publish the front panels of my embedded VIs to the web. I have followed the instructions in the documents linked below, but am having problems seeing the image in the web page for the embedded VI. What could be causing this?

The most common cause for this is the use of an unsupported viewing option. When using the Web Publishing Tool in LabVIEW, there is a Viewing Options pull-down menu. The options in this menu are Embedded, Snapshot, and Monitor. Real-Time targets support only the Embedded viewing option. This is because on a Real-Time target the front panel does not exist, which means there will be nothing to take a snapshot of. This is the same reason why certain method and property nodes that refer to the front panel are not supported on Real-Time targets.

Another possible cause for this behavior is that when using the Embedded viewing option, you must have the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine installed on any computer viewing the embedded front panel through the web.
