Hello NI community,
When I attempt to edit a VI icon within Labview 2020, the icon editor does not visually appear, but a frozen window appears when I ALT+TAB. I have no access to the editor, and no error message is displayed.
The VI is not opened anywhere else, and all files are located on a local drive (including my Labview Data directory). Moreover, I have Labview 2019 installed, and that can access the icon editor without worry.
I have completed the following steps with no success;
- Used the NI package manager to repair Labview 2020,
- Reinstalled Labview 2020.
Any help would be appreciated,
Hi, may I confirm some details with you first?
If you face any difficulties during troubleshooting, we can discuss at here for next step.
It could be that the VI is corrupted. Open a new VI and copy+paste the block diagram and see if it works better.
Head over here:
The linked post contains source code for the icon editor as well as instructions on how to replace the built-in icon editor. Try that. Just replacing it probably won't fix anything, but it's a start.
Once you've replaced it though, you can now add debug hooks, probes, etc into the icon editor code to narrow down what's causing the problem. It does quite a lot of things on startup, and if you narrow it down to one node causing the problem it should give you a much better idea of where to look for a fix.
