Hello, I installed without a glitch Labview 8.6 evaluation on my notebook (WXP, SP3). I could not launch the software from the outset and keep getting MS Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error about nimxs.exe abnormally terminating the Runtime.
I had not worked with the development software previously. I only had Runtime Engine 7.1 on my computer to work with older VIs that had been working flawlessly. Idi not develop these VIs and had not modified them. I removed the Engine from the computer and rebooted several times to no success. The forum discussions about this kind of error are not pertinent to this problem of installation that has never worked. I tried to disable firewall and antivirus and added nimxs.exe to the firewall's enabled software, again to no success.
Can anyone help? Thanks in advance
I would advise you 2 steps to do that might help with you problem. First delet the data folder as described in the foolowing KB:
Then you should Repair the LabVIEW installation, it does not take so long time than reinstalling it.
Hopefully after this you will be able to run LabVIEW.
May you have further questions or if this did not help, don't hesitate to ask!
it did not help. Since I could not run LabVIEW any time I do not think the database got corrupted. The message (snapshot attached) appears on the computer start up. I would suspect the firewall, but disabling it did not help either.
It seems that the only way to resolve this problem is cleaning your system(uninstall every NI Product) and reinstalling NI Products. It is important to uninstall the NI products with the attached executable, because this way all NI Product MSI Registy Entries will be uninstalled as well. I'm not happy that this turned out to be the potencial solution but let's give it a try. Let me know if you have new results after reinstalling the software!
