I want a comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of labview VS Labwindows/CVI.
why should i prefer one over another.
Any help will save me from him.

You can do the same things in any of them. CVI is easy to use if you know C else stick with Labview.

It really comes down to what you want to do. As an R&D engineer I find labview easy to write my test programs and simulation with without checking for syntax error, keeping track of types, and all other irrelevant programming issues associated with C/C++. However if you are used to C/C++ type of environment and know how ot get to the classes and objects then Labwindows is good for you. However once you discover all the VIs and their capabilities and know how to use them, then Labview is the way to go for productivity.

Use labview to make standard analysis of captured signal: FFT, view real time graphs, save data to disk,etc, etc. In that case, labview is very easy and powerful. But if you need to program something specific, FORGET Labview!! Graphic programs are a mess!!

For example, to make a simply sequence you need use the sequence box, while the standard programming is obvious ... Idem to case box, etc, etc.

To simplify the program you need to do a lot of nested Vis....

In short, if you need specific programming, use Labwindows or Measurement Studio.
