Subject: LabVIEW EPICS I/O Server

I am trying to use the "native" (NI-supplied) EPICS I/O Server support for LabVIEW 2009 without the LabVIEW Datalogging and Supervisory Control (DSC) module.

I followed the relevant download and installation instructions, as shown in this page:
http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/tut/p/id/10812

Its worth mentioning that step 5 as shown on that page (and the file 'epicsreadme.txt') is identical to Step 2. I assume this is an error and should in fact state that a further software installation is to be done from the .msi file in folder EPICS_LVSupp_90?

Anyway, having performed the installation and restarted the National Instruments Variable Engine, I right-click on 'My Computer' target in a new Project window, select 'New>I/O Server' from the shortcut menu, select 'EPICS Client' option (this does appear) and finally click the 'Continue..' button.

A 'Configure EPICS Client I/O Server' dialog box should appear. But for me, nothing happens at all after I click the 'Continue' button. so I cannot configure an EPICS I/O Server.

I have repeated this installation now on 3 separate PCs, all behave the same. All are running LabVIEW 2009 on Windows XP.

Has anyone succeeded in configuring an EPICS I/O Server for LabVIEW 2009 without the Datalogging and Supervisory Control module?
