Accessing executable while running LabVIEW
Okay, I'm creating this VI in labview that uses SystemExec.vi to run
an external, DOS-based program. However, this external program needs
input after output of the first segment of text. The input is found
using a small Call Library Function, but is BASED ON what the program
outputs during its first segment.
So, if you couldn't tell already, I'm having a problem getting the
output of the first segment into LabVIEW so I can work with it. In
SystemExec.vi, when I set "Wait Until Completion?" to "false", there
is no output from the sub-vi. Thus, I can't work with it.
Basically, during the whole execution, I need to have LabVIEW able to
interact with the program. But it looks like the program outputs to
ONLY ONE device, either the console or LabVIEW. Any suggestions?
