DAQ Assist wont build

I am having issues with DAQ Assistant on Labview 2011.   I have the most up to date DAQmX drivers from the website.   Still have the issues after doing a full re-install of everything as well. 

 

DAQ Assistant will find the channels and show the output in the top graph display area.   When you go to build the VI and click ok it just runs the "building" scanner bar and locks up completely.   It will also give the "Failed to create directory for auto recovery VIs" error message. 

 

I had to install with ad-min rights, but cannot run under an ad-min account.   Do I need to set some kind of permission for the DAQ Assistant to work?  If so, which/and how do I set those specific rights.   Any other help?  Thanks in advance!

This sounds like a file permission issue.  Since you installed Labview with administrative privileges, you may be able to change the permissions of the Labview directory (recursively) and see what happens.

I forgot to ask which OS you are using.

 

Start by turning on Admistrator Account (I guess the true administrator account) and allow file/folder write access:

1. Go to Start, Programs, Accessories

2. Right-click on Command Prompt and click 'Run as Administrator'

3. Type in the following:

Net user administrator /active:yes

(there must be a space between administrator and /)

4. Reboot

 

Check if you have access.

The solution was found by doing a Google search on "Run application as administrator on Windows 7", one of the found sites provided these various options:  I would stay away from options 7 & 8 unless you know exactly what you are doing..

 

 from here

    1. Press and hold Ctrl+Shift while opening the program.

    2. If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes to apply permission to allow the program to run with full permission as an Administrator.
    NOTE: If you are doing this is while logged in as standard user instead of an administrator, then you will need to provide the administrator's password before the program will run as administrator.





OPTION TWO
"Run as administrator" using Context Menu of Program

NOTE: This will show you how to temporarily run a program as an administrator once until you close it.

    1. Right click on the program's shortcut or an .EXE file, BAT file, CMD file, or MSI file, and click on Run as administrator. (see screenshot below)

Not much info from Msuff themselves if using Windows XP:

 

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/windows_security_runa...

 

The short version would be:

 

To start a program as an administrator

1.  In Windows Explorer, click the program executable file that you want to open.

2.  Press SHIFT and hold, right-click the program icon, and then click Run as.

Use of Run as is not limited to Administrator accounts.

See, my issue is that Labview was installed as an admin, but I cannot get ad-min rights without chopping my arm off and selling it.  I am using Windows 7.   Are there any ways to set the permissions without being an ad-min?  Or should I get the saw and turniquet out?  

 

Its a federal computer and getting ad-min rights has been seriously backed up right now.   I know a couple people that have been waiting 4 weeks.

Can you ask the IT people to allow admin rights to execute LabVIEW?  Surely they have encountered that before.
