LabVIEW Initializing Plug Ins takes too long time.

Hi,
I am using LabVIEW 2015 SP1 on Windows 7. Here is my issue:

1. PC is connected to internet.
2. Start LabVIEW (just LabVIEW), it takes at least 30-40 sec to load (hang always on "Initializing plugs in")

3. Close LabVIEW, takes also long time until the icon disappears.

4. Disabled internet connection.

5. Start LabVIEW, it loads faster (4-5 secs)

6. Close LabVIEW, also takes only 4-5 secs.

 

My question:
1. What does LabVIEW actually called during "Initializing plugs in" and its relatio with "Internet connection"?

2. Does LabVIEW always check "server" somewhere or check license?

It is really an issue for me, especially if i call my project from GUI. It takes very long time to load until sometimes it doesn't responds... the work arround i found, just to disable internet connection, something i don't like, especially if i want to work remotely.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Possibly related to search parameter in Tools..->Options->Search ?? Disabled all internet related searches? I'm spitballing here, never ran across this issue..

Hi ChrisK88,

 

thanks for your idea. I have tried it. Disabled any possibility features that might have any relation to internet connection. Unfortunately, it still the same.

I didn't measure the time, but when i disabled internet connection, LabVIEW starts immediately.

Do you have the Update Service running?

Not on this reason, but I killed (stopped and set to disabled) most of NI web services (Start -> Services -> they start from "NI") that I do not use.

Hello Rajamodol,

 

I suggest you try repairing the LabVIEW instalation by going to the 'Repair' feature in "\Control Panel\Programs and Features". 

What I also suggest is that you uninstall all parts of LabVIEW you do not currently have a license for.

Sounds a lot like an issue I was having with the NI License Manager - do you have your NI License manager pointed to a license server that doesn't exist?

Hi Sam,

 

Thanks for your respond. I have just back from Vacation.. sorry, for late reply.

 

Yes, we have manage our license through license server. But, does Labview always check its license every time it is opened? if yes, how to avoid it, in case our license server is down?

 

Thanks,

For me, the issue was resolved by removing the server (which no longer existed) from the NI license manager. The temporary solution was to start LabVIEW without a network connection (or on a different network) which seemed to launch LabVIEW without the delay (e.g. if working out of the office).
