Repeatable LabVIEW crashes on Mac

Confounded by this new problem.

 

Platform: Mac OSX 10.6.5 (this problem first cropped up while I was using 10.6.4 - I had previously no problems with 10.6.4)

LabVIEW 2010

 

I cannot suddenly open any instrument subVIs (subVIs created by me open fine) without crashing LabVIEW. It does not matter when the VI was created. I just cannot open the subVIs. I was able to, only last week (and before that).

Re: Repeatable LabVIEW crashes on Mac

That sounds like a file corruption problem.  Can you obtain clean copies the the instrument subVIs from a different source to see if you can open them?  If you post one of the VIs which causes your system to crash, perhaps someone can see what the problem is.

Re: Repeatable LabVIEW crashes on Mac

I fixed the problem by reinstalling LabVIEW and moving back all the instrument VIs. Don't know what was wrong.

Same here, update from 10.6.4 to 10.6.5 and then every time I open a VI a try to create a VISA resource name control LabVIEW crashes. Both LV 2009 and 2010 exhibit the same behavior. 

By looking at the crash log, it seems that nipal has some problems when loading libSystem.B.dylib.

I'll try to reinstall VISA and be back to you about the result.

Re: Repeatable LabVIEW crashes on Mac

during your re-installation did you reboot with the 32 bit kernel ?

Re: Repeatable LabVIEW crashes on Mac

Booting the kernel in 32 bits solved the problem!

Lets hope for a quick release of a 64 bits version of Visa and of course the rest of NI products line!

Go to your Discussion Forum profile settings, My settings, Preferences, Display.

 

There is an option called "Emoticon Type" it is probably set on Use default (smiley).  Change it to None.

 

Then :smileyvery-happy:   (   :  D without the spaces) will not show up automatically as :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Repeatable LabVIEW crashes on Mac

I did. I mean, I had to. LabVIEW on 64 bit Mac is currently useless (no 64 bit VISA) because NI continues to treat Linux and Mac customers as poor relatives while charging them the same amount of money.
