The VIPM VI-based API is a collection of VIs that allow you to command and control VIPM (VI Package Manager). The VIs have been compiled in LabVIEW 2013 and can be used for automation code written in LabVIEW 2013 or newer.

The VIPM 2020 API VIs only work with VIPM 2020 Pro or Community Edition (or newer). It will not work with VIPM Free Edition. Also, In order for the API to work, you must have the main VIPM application running. It can be minimized, but it must be running.
