LabVIEW Merge: Auto-resolve

Do you know that you can automatically merge two VIs developed between two different members as long as there is very no conflict in the same structure? For example, if you have modified one of the states and the other developer modified totally different state, then when you merge with Auto-resolve checkbox enabled, LabVIEW will try to merge both of your changes into a single VI.

Merging LabVIEW VIs with SourceTree

Blogs, LabVIEW Blog
After 10+ years of working in LabVIEW, I finally got to merge one of the projects properly.

Blogs, Snippets
When I installed Windows 10 on my MacBook Pro, I was devastated when I noticed I couldn't use the touchpad to its fullest since it showed only one option in Windows Settings without any precision settings. Later I found we need to upgrade the Boot Camp software to be beyond v6.1.15 to get the trackpad working. Hope this helps someone. Strangely Apple Software Update doesn't update the BootCamp to the latest version in a single shot. First I had to install v6.1.13 and v6.1.14, do a restart, then later redo the update to get Boot Camp version v6.1.17 v6.1.19 Apple Software Update - Boot Camp v6.1.17 v6.1.19 After a reboot, it gives the Precision Touchpad option in Boot Camp Control Panel.
