What Windows operating systems does Robolab work with, and can I still use the infrared transmission tower to load the program onto the RCX brick?
The application isn't standalone which means you can't just run it. It requires another application because it has some VI files and based on my knowledge I know that VI files are used by the LabVIEW product. The software will run on practically all versions of Windows as long as the support platform where you load it is also compatible with the operating system currently installed.
