I write here because I have a problem installing the NI Packet Manager and have tried almost all solutions I could find without getting positive results.
The problem is the following:
Which occurs when I try to launch the NI Packet Installer. It happened after I stopped the installation and tried to start it again, so I suppose it is caused because the installer detects an occupied pathway. First solution I thought was deleting the folders created by the installer (which was started but stopped after some seconds):
C:\Program Files\National Instruments
C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments
but didn't solve anything. After that I tried searching in the program section of Windows for any program which could have been installed, but there was nothing related to the NI Packet Manager. Then I tried installing the program in the HDD, but I was not able to change the installation path. Finally, I used the offline installation method, but throws the message "Packet is already installed", which is partially false.
So I web through the Internet in search of a solution and came accross a post in wich the owner had the same problem:
Other users answered him with 3 different solutions:
Furthermore, I tried repairing the program using the following file:
C:\Program Files\National Instruments\NI Package Manager\Updater\Install.exe
But throws the following error:
A solution I've seen but can't use is downloading LabVIEW directly from https://download.ni.com/, it installs correctly but I also need NI-DAQmx driver and Vision Development Module add-on, obtainable from the NI Packet Manager, so it does not work for me.
I'm really grateful that you have read my post, and hope someone is able to help me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Alberto, do you know what version of NI Package Manager that you downloaded and installed?
Thanks for answering Scott, I downloaded various versions because I need the version 2022 Q3, but when I tried to install them, all of them appeared as version 2023 Q1 in the following step:
(In the image it says 20.6.0 because it is not mine, I am not able to reach that step as it shows me the error message when I use the executable file)
Thanks again for answering.
Alberto, since you had installed the latest version of NIPM, you will need to go thru some manual steps using a utility that I will have to send you to fix this. I tried to send you a private message to your user name in this community, but the system says that it was disabled, which might be a configuration option for your account, not sure.
Can you please send me a message using the Send Message option when you hover over my forum user name let me know how I can contact you.
Thanks for helping me out Scott.
I tried to send you a private message but it does not let me do it:
I'll try again later but don't think it will change.
I've also searched for an option to let you send me a message, but I have not found it.
Do you need my email or something like that? As I can not send you a private message with it and don't want to post it publicly, I can post a doc on the internet with my mail and delete it after you see it, just let me know what you need.
Can you check to see if the below checkbox is checked which might prevent me from sending you a message:
Issue resolve with custom steps from support to uninstall NIPM manually, and then reinstall NIPM normally.
I have a similar problem. Could you also send me the fix you previously sent?
We contacted Thorsten directly and we were able to resolve the issue with some internal tools.
I have the same problem, it is possible to rsolve this issue with your tools in my laptop ?
Thanks a lot.
