If you refer back to the first page of this discussion forum, it looks like deleting files did not solve the problem.  Instead, you will need to change your permissions settings.  Please follow the 7 steps posted by bhumble on the previous page.  This should solve your problem.  Thanks!

i have browsed through the registry and looked for the entry mentioned in the errormessage: (HKEY_LOKAL_MASCHINE\SOFTWARE\CLASSES\LVDb.APPLICATION\CLSID)

Problem is that i could not find the Datei LVDb.APPLICATION\CLSID under the Path to do the 7 steps.
So i rightclicked on the folder CLASSES, choosed Permisson..._Advanced_ Add NewUser_then a error message came:" an object names 2everyone"can not found. Check the Path......"
Any suggestion ?

You first want to verify that you are following the correct path in the registry to locate the LVDB.Application folder.  If you are sure the folder is not there, then something must be corrupted in the registry.  I would make sure that you are logged in as an administrator, and I would suggest uninstalling all of your National Instruments software, and reinstalling it.  This should fix any problems in the registry.

I got his when upgrading Adobe Flash also. Changing the permissions in the registry was the key.

@Keiman Change permissions on the group of keys the installer is complaining about (local machine\software\adobe?)

Administrator or not, permissions can be set to lock out _anyone_, but administrators can change them back. 😉
