To simplify student procedure it is a good idea to start OMFListener automatically with the PC starts (more specifically when the user used to install the Academic Hub toolkit logs in) instead of having it a step. This way OMFListener is always ready to receive messages from LabVIEW and forward them.
To do so the installation steps below show how to create a Windows task.
Windows Startup Task for OMFListener
First start Windows 'Task Scheduler' then click on 'Create Basic Task...' to launch the task wizard.
Test the new task
Reboot and PC and log in. A console window for OMFListener should display for a few seconds and then disappear. To confirm that OMFListener is running, open a browser and go to URL http://localhost:6008.
If the task doesn't work as expected, re-open the Task Scheduler, double-click the 'OMFListener' task to display its properties and double-check that they match the screenshots below:
