You mis-read the previous suggestion.  If you are running 64-bit LabVIEW (besides the obvious question of "Why?  Most of us run 32-bit, as it appears to be more stable ...), you need to look in "Program Files" (where 64-bit apps are stored), not "Program Files (x86)" (which is for 32-bit programs).

In my PC the path is

C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2011

So, I obviously forgot the "National Instruments" subdirectory in the full path.

The default path depends on the OS and LabVIEW bitness:

 

LabVIEW 32bit on Windows 32bit: OR LabVIEW 64bit on Windows 64bit:

C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2017

 

LabVIEW 32bit on Windows 64bit:

C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2017

I know the path of directory i.e., C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2017

But I am saying there is no file of name--- LabVIEW.ini which you suggest to rename.

what to do next? Any other solution.

The extension might not show, depending on your explorer settings.

However, if the file is really not there, maybe we have a permission issue and LabVIEW cannot write to that location for some reason. Do you have admin privileges? What happens if you start LabVIEW in admin mode (right-click...run as administrator)

Since every LabVIEW installation has a LabVIEW.ini file, it's possible that your file was eaten up by the same problem that prevents LabVIEW to start. Not a very useful info, though.

There is not much to do. If LabVIEW.ini is not there, LabVIEW simply creates a new ini file with a few default settings... if it can start of course.
