No Tests Show Up in VI Analyzer [pics]

I do not see any tests available in the VI analyzer window, does anyone know why this could be?


I can open up the VI Analyzer in the tools menu and select some VIs:




When I click "Next" I do not see any tests available:




I do have some .llb files in the VI Analyzer folder:

Repairing the VI analyzer install fixed the situation.

How exactly did you repair? VI Analyzer is a part of Professional LabVIEW. It doesn't show up as a separate NI software that can be repaired. Repairing LabVIEW itself didn't fix it for me.

The VI Analyzer Toolkit is included in LabVIEW Professional but it is also its own entity that can be seen within the NI License Manager, but to download the toolkit again you can find the installer at:,%20...

Thanks! Downloading and reinstalling it separately helped indeed! It added the previously missing folders and libraries to the "C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2015\project\_VI Analyzer" folder.

This is happening to me in LabVIEW 2017 x64.  I used NI Package manager to uninstall VI Analyzer and then downloaded the latest version and installed it.   Tests window is still blank.  Any ideas?

Hi Thomas,


Did you use NIPM to re-install it or the direct link (64-bit)? From your wording I assume you used the direct link, but just want to double check.


You could also try to repair the entire installation...

What does your VI Analyzer directory have in it? Mine is located at "C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2016\project\_VI Analyzer" and contains


folder "_tests"

folder "Quick Launch"

I used NI Package manager to uninstall VI Analyzer, then I used the downloaded zip file from the direct link to install it.


My directory

C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2017\project\_VI Analyzer

contains the same files you listed.  Looking at the "_tests" folder, I see various test categorys and subfolders and lots of llb's under them.

How do you do a repair operation?  I don't see that in windows program list or NI package manager.

I think if you run the install media again you might be able to run a repair operation, but I am not positive.
