First look at LabVIEW 5

LabVIEW 5 offers technologies such as multithreading, automation and TCP/IP server, distributed computing tools, translation and documentation tools.

An Instrument Wizard detects GPIB, VXI, serial, and computer-based instruments, installs instrument drivers, and generates an example program using the instrument driver. LabVIEW 5 is now an ActiveX Container, meaning that users can easily drop any ActiveX control or document onto a LabVIEW front panel, edit it and control it using a simple graphical approach on the block diagram.

LabVIEW 5 is available for Windows NT/95/3.1, Mac OS, Solaris, HP-UX and Concurrent PowerMAX.
