Migrating from the SPARK MAX API and/or Color Sensor V3 API

Beginning in 2022, The SPARK MAX API and the Color Sensor V3 API have been merged into a unified library called REVLib. You need to make sure that you have uninstalled those old libraries before you install REVLib.

LabVIEW migration

  1. 1.
    Ensure that the old SPARK MAX API and/or Color Sensor V3 API packages are uninstalled.
  2. 3.
    Opening a project that used the old APIs should work fine. When it is loading, it may show that there are some missing VIs, but eventually LabVIEW should find the new VIs automatically.

C++/Java migration

  1. 1.
    Open your robot project in VSCode.
  2. 2.
    Click on the WPI icon in the corner to open the WPI Command Pallet.
  3. 3.
    Select Manage Vendor Libraries.
  4. 4.
    Select Manage Current Libraries.
  5. 5.
    Check the REVRobotics and/or REVColorSensorV3 items (whichever ones are present)
  6. 6.
    Click the OK button to uninstall them.
  7. 7.
    Install REVLib for C++ and Java.
