Configuring FPGA local compiler

I am attempting to compile code on my 9606 sbRIO.  I have selected local compiler.  When I attempt to compile the VI by pressing the "start button" on the front panel I get the following error message(s):



LabVIEW FPGA:  The compilation cannot be performed by the compile worker. The compile worker may be configured incorrectly for this compilation, or it may be in an error state.

Click the 'Details' button for additional information.

What version of LabVIEW are you using?  What version of the Xilinx compiles do you have installed?

Hi Ppalmer,


Please click the “Details” button in the compilation status window and reply this post with a screenshot of the compilation error.


This issue may be similar to the issue that was discussed in the forum thread, found here, but we’ll need the error message to confirm that.

Does this unexpected error occur when compiling a blank VI for any FPGA target?


Also, can you attach the compile worker log to this forum? 

The workerLog.txt file can be found in the C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\FPGA\CompileWorker directory.
