Hands On Installer

by Member MikeeB ‎10-24-2013 04:07 AM - edited ‎01-30-2017 09:35 AM

This installer is built to allow .lvzip files to be installed. .lvzip files are created to include files and documentation for hands on sessions. This will register the UnLVZip executable to run when you double click on an .lvzip file. It will take the contents and place them correctly into the Project Template folders.

If you have any issues please leave a comment.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the installer.

One thing that might be nice to add is a popup showing that the project has been installed and its location. I had an uninstalled trial version of LV2013 on my PC and the project was initially installed to that directory. It took me a while to find it but got there in the end.

Thanks,

Greg

You should install this package, and then this will allow you to double click on one of the hands on LVZip files to install them. They will then show up in the Create Project menu of LabVIEW. What do you mean by "it doesn't install"?  Mike

Hello.

Please I am trying to install the 'installer' but I keep getting the message

Installation Summary

No software will be installed or removed

Please what am I doing wrong?

It sounds like it has already installed. Nothing will come up to say it has installed.  Try downloading your required hands on and the double clicking it. It should then pop up showing where it is installing

Hi Mike,

It keeps showing "It looks like LabVIEW is running. This won't work with LabVIEW running unfortunately. Please try again after closing LabVIEW." But actually the LabVIEW is not running.

Thanks,
