How to launch VIPM for Mac/Linux to a specific toolkit?

Recommended Posts


Greetings from National Instruments Shanghai R&D.

We have a link vipm://jdp_science_jsontext, we can use this link to launch VIPM to the jsontext toolkit install page, we uses System Exec.vi and pass a command line parameter to it(e.g, “cmd /c start vipm://jdp_science_jsontext”), this works perfect on Windows(put this vipm:// link into a web-browser also works).  


However, on Mac/Linux, we can not do this successfully, we can only launch vipm but cannot open to jsontext toolkit installation page. Is the vipm:// link recognized/supported by VIPM for Mac/Linux? Is there a way to launch VIPM 2017 for Mac/Linux to show a specific toolkit via command line parameter? If yes, how to do that?  Thanks!
