One thing you might try, too, if the MAX database can't be fixed using the KB is trying to do a repair of LV8.5. I know 8.6.1 can coexist with the others. My laptop has 6.1, 7.0, 7.1, 8.0.1, 8.2.1, 8.5.1, and 8.6.1, and possibly 6.0.
The next three evenings are already spoken for (Grandaughter wins out over LV) SO I will execute the log version this week-end.
Send me a normal support e-mail at
So I can reply when I have the log file.
I'll re-group when we have more info about his issue.
Am I correct in that you don't have Labview 8.6 on your machine right now? As in, you're trying a clean 8.6.1 install, not upgrading from 8.6 to 8.6.1?
In that case, don't forget that you can download a fully functional 8.6 evaluation here. I remember Christina suggested it, but I don't think we ever followed through and downloaded it.
Yes clean install of 8.6.1.
Please send me an e-mail at
and I'll forward the log file (it contains a bunch of serial numbers etc.).
After reading about hounddog's experience, it also makes sense to check for erros on your hard drive. You can do this by using windows' checkdisk utility.
Went through the full Windows checkdisk with a few blocks marked free that where in use but afterwards no joy.
Send me e-mail and I will reply with log file.
