Exiting LabVIEW opens new VI.

Hi,

 

we found a very strange behaviour when we're closing LabVIEW 2012. Sometimes when we want to close the Getting Started Window LabVIEW doesn't close and opens a new VI. This happens when we're using the windows cross or File->Exit. The same behaviour is with LabVIEW 2012 SP1.

 

We cannot say what we have done, we cannot surely reproduce this behaviour, it's very spontanous.

 

I've searched the forum for such an entry, but didn't find such an entry. Please do not shoot me if it's a double post.

I *know* there is a post on this sibject, but I can't find it, either!  I forgot exactly what it is, but some combination of events puts LabVIEW in a weird state where it does exactly what you are seeing.  Unfortunately I don't remember the workaround.  I believe NI has a fix that will be implemented soon...

Here is that post.

 

LabVIEW opens new blank vi when attempting to exit.

 

It appears to be a bug that NI is aware of.

Raven to the rescue again.  Thanks for filling in the blanks!  🙂
