Problems saving a VI

Can someone explain me why I'm having these problems?

Every time that I save this VI I get the same warning messages:

Insane object at BDHP+2A20 in ": {graphics} {0x80}: GRefDCO (DCO)
and
Insane object at BDHP+2A20 in ": {graphics} {0x80}: Wire Segment
(WIRE)

The VI is executable with no errors. I have made some backup copies and same
warnings appear.

Does someone know where's the problem and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance....

This happens occasionally when you have some problems with editing.
There are a couple of options:
1) Edit the diagram and move things around. This may take some time to do.
keep trying to save until it goes away.
2) Open a new VI and start copying from
the old one to the new one.
3) If the VI is not very large, rebuild it from scratch.

Hope this helps

These criptic errors are basically a low level test that LV makes on all of
the objects in the panel and diagram to verify that things make sense, that
they are sane. If they aren't, they are called insane. An attempt at humor.
Anyway, these messages can report things like bad links, bad counts, bad
object sizes, a
nd in cases like this, "graphic" or cosmetic problems that
won't affect the execution of the VI, they just might confuse the LV editor.

Since your affected objects are a wire, and a global, somewhere on your
diagram there is a wired global that somewhere doesn't remember exactly where,
which pixel, it is supposed to connect to the wire. Some of these problems
are fixed when they are discovered and will never occur again. If this comes
up each time you save or recompile, then you can fix the VI yourself.
If you
only have a few globals, delete the wire and reattach. If its a BIG VI, then
you can contact support and they can tell you how to use a lower level tool
to find the wire and gobal that are having problems. Deleting and rewiring
should fix it once and for all.

hi,
try this (besides of the tips from the other guys):
exit labview and delete all temporary lv-files. they are usually placed in
the system
temp-directory and are named like
"uarcXXXX.vi" and "lvtlXXX.rsc", where
XXXX is a number.
(no jok
e, i've got this from the ni-support).
