lmgrd.exe 100% CPU usage

Recently my computer became really slugish.
The task manager tells me that proccess lmgrd.exe
takes 98-100% of CPU time all the time.
The program is found at
C:\Program Files\National Instruments\Shared\License Manager\Bin\lmgrd.exe

Please let me know how to fix this abnormal beahior.

Re: lmgrd.exe 100% CPU usage


What else is going on on your maching when this occurs? If you reboot and launch no programs...does this still happen? Are you running a LabVIEW application at the time this happens? Do you have VLM??...or are you hosting a remote panel off of a VI? What version of LabVIEW do you have?

I did find one instance of this happening to a customer in our was associated with a version 6.x of LabVIEW and a reinstall fixed the issue. We could not repeat it in house.
