Add User Lib to Pallette - Black Question Marks

Go to solution

Hi all,


Tried to add this interesting set of VI's to the User Pallette:


I end up with a set of black question marks:




Using LV 2010 f2.


How to fix?

Accepted by topic author battler.

The .mnu file included in the PDF toolkit points to a folder in user.lib named Exaprom PDF, not Exaprom PDF 1.0.


Just remove 1.0 from the name and it will work.


(If you go into palette edit mode you can right click on the question marks and ask LV to show you the path it is using. That is how you can find out where the mnu file is (in this case incorrectly) pointing...)

Check out ClampOn CAN Monitor on the LabVIEW Tools Network.

Mads is right.


Sorry,  I made the modification:

Create the folder “Exaprom PDF” in the directory user.lib:
C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW XXXX\user.lib\Exaprom PDF

Download and copy the zip contents to:
C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW XXXX\user.lib\Exaprom PDF\

LV2009 and LV2013

How is the .mnu file created?  Got some info on that?  How can I read it?

The dir.mnu file is in the zip file located at J-M's community document.  Make sure that is copied as well, and that you close and restart LabVIEW so it can reread all of the menu files.  You can also to to Tools / Advanced then Edit Palette Set.  You don't have to do anything other than let the dialog box open than cancel it.  That menu choice forces LabVIEW to reload the palettes.

It works fine now.  Sorry I should have worded my question better.


Suppose I wanted to set up my own user library on the functions pallette and arrange it in an orderly fashion.  How would I go about creating a menu file?
