Access IVI Virtual and Physical Names Programmatically using the IVIConfigServer API in CVI

Created on: Jul 13, 2010 2:09 PM by Al.B - Last Modified:  Jul 13, 2010 2:24 PM by Al.B

This example demonstrates the use of the IVIConfigServer API in CVI, which allows programmatic access to the IVI configuration store, which contains current Logical names, driver sessions, and IVI settings.  To use the IVI configuration store, make sure to do the following:


  1. Install the IVI compliance package if it is not installed.  It can be found here:
  2. Include the iviconfigserver.h file in your program:
    #include <Iviconfigserver.h>

  3. Add the IviConfigServer.lib to your project (otherwise you will see link errors)
