I suggest you look at some of the templates included with WindRiver.

They include saving images to the internal storage, and tracking several different color lights.

There is no good way at the moment other than to write your own program to do it (presumably a Labview dashboard app). I imagine that the host computer has the same access to the JPEG camera image that the Labview dashboard has, so it is only a matter of getting it and displaying it with a program or script. Maybe someday they will provide a stand-alone app to do it, much like the CMU cam had. Or.. someone here should make one in Labview to share!
