Re: Specific Error Handler Reference Library

Ryan,

 

Do you have a .vip that has the GXML bundled with the SEH? I see that people are still running into the error when they try to install using VIPM. Would bundling the GXML library with your SEH get around this issue for now?

Re: Specific Error Handler Reference Library

Where should I extract the files to?

Re: Specific Error Handler Reference Library

The old version (1.0.1) uses an installer, so you can extract it to a temp folder and then run the intstaller.

The new version uses VI Package manager, so you can extract to a temp folder and the install it using VI Package manager (you must install the GXML vip first, as described by previous posts).

Re: Specific Error Handler Reference Library

With GXML installed the VIPM tool tells me that it can not find it, I get the missing dependency notice.

 

How can I correct this?

Re: Specific Error Handler Reference Library

Hi Michael,

 

I also had the same problem that I installed the GXML with the Installer and than the SEH from the VIP file.

In this case you get a missing Dependency, because the VIPM searches fro the GXML in the packages installed with the VIPM.

 

Just install the GXML from a VIP file (as I know this is the latest ni_lib_gxml-1.4.0.4.vip) and than you can install the SEH, It will find the dependency and install normally.

Re: Specific Error Handler Reference Library

Thank You

 

um no to sound like a fool (not that it has ever stopped me before)  (grin)  how do I get VIPM to look for this file on my PC?

 

I downloaded and extracted the file, restarted VIPM, it does not seem to find it.

Mike,

 

Once you download the GXML .vip to your desktop, you should just be able to double-click it and VIPM will take it from there. Once you get done installing the GXML .vip, you should be able to then install the SEH .vip by double-clicking it as well.

Re: Specific Error Handler Reference Library

Thank You Vrey Much

That did it.

 

My PC was changing the file extension to .zip.

 

I changed it to .vip and everything worked liks a charm.

 

Thanks Again.

Re: Specific Error Handler Reference Library

Hi Ryan,

 

I just would like to know if the SEH will be released officially by NI? I really would like to use it, but I need a trackable software that has guaranteed execution, as the release of my software requires it.

Re: Specific Error Handler Reference Library

Sorry for the slow response, I was out of the office for a couple weeks.

 

We have considered adding SEH or something like it to the product, but as of this time there are no concrete plans to do so.

 

The SEH distributions include the full source for the component, which means that you can simply integrate it into your own code and own the maintenance of it yourself.  The logic that actually gets included in your application when using it is relatively simple (most of the complexity is in the configuration dialogs), so this could be a viable, if not an ideal, solution.

 

Regards,

Ryan
