Were the programs and the exe allowed to install in their default locations? This error could be because executables sometimes write and/or create certain files such as the ini file when they are opened, and if the installer put these files into an "administrator-only" location it won't let you into it when not logged in as administrator.
We DID NOT use the older NiDAQ drivers, but rather the newer iones that came with the current version of Labview we just purchased.
Can you clarify what you mean by "We DID NOT use"? Did you not let the exe install the older RTE and DAQmx versions? When did you get the error message - when you tried to run the exe without LV open?
During installation of the labview .exe file, I did not change any of the default locations.
WRT the line "Did Not Use", I was referring specifically to the older version of the NIDaq software and drivers, not the RTE, as the RTE was included in the "installation package" of the .exe instrument control package.
Yes, the error messages occur when I run the .exe file.
