Hi Phillip,

Although I do have the DSC module installed I know I've been able to use the
EPICS I/O client in LabView without this. I'm a little surprised that you
need to download anything to get this installed on your end, from what I
understand epics support was supposed to be built in right out of the box in
LabView 2009 and I know that I never had to download anything off the NI web
site to get this going. When installing LabView off the CD do you not have
an option for an epics client?

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?
