Did you mean: 

Labview Terminal Will not Connect to EV3, but EV3 Retail Software Will (and, LEGO driver will not uninstall)

Go to solution

Windows successfuly connects to the LEGO EV3 through USB or Bluetooth.

However, the LabVIEW 2015 LEGO Terminal will not recognize it.

I installed the Retail EV3 software to check, and it *does* connect to the EV3.

I am trying to repair the "LEGO Mindstorms NXT x64 Driver", but it will not uninstall even if I uninstall all of LabVIEW including the module (entering admin rights when prompted.)


I have been wrestling with this for days, and I need to connect my EV3 to teach my students LabVIEW.


Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance.

We found it!

Our IT department was able to dig down into the driver package and eventually get it to uninstall.

Something was corrupted and the driver would never uninstall properly.

This fixed the probelm beautifully.
