Labview error 1026, please help?


I have installed Labview 2012 and FTC Tool kit on a MacBook Air. Labview Launcehes fine, but when I want to create a new peogram, it gives me this erros window:

Error 1026: VI Reference is invalid.

Source: Invoke Node in launch>create new>

And that is all I can do. I can not do anything else. I already erased Labview and installed it again, but no luck. Is there an uninstall exe, that I should try? Is anybody else having this problem?

Thanks for any help

Do you have a VI at the path "<LabVIEW>/Targets/NI/NXT/NXTToolkit/Robot Control Center/"?

You can try deleting the folder <LabVIEW>/Targets and re-running the installer.

Yes, I do have that VI: LabVIEW>/Targets/NI/NXT/NXTToolkit/Robot Control Center/

Delete just the targets folder and reinstall LabView or the Tool Kit?

I think something is sticking in the preferences or in the system......

Hi 9419,

I think the problem is probably originating from the user permissions on the machine you're using. Is it a shared machine, and is the current user an administrator on the machine?

I am not able to attach files here, so I created a forum post to attach an empty project:

Thank you very much for your help! I am an administrator on this machine. Is there something that I should do to have it work? I will try the file you sent me too... Thanks
