- Other test executive capabilities include login and password protection to restrict access to specific features of the test station. The Test Executive includes the EXEC test type to allow execution of external programs as well as an API to allow linking with popular third-party software packages like Microsoft Visual Studio™ and National Instruments’ LabView™ and LabWindows™.
