I have been using different background images on my front panels for years. Never had a problem until now. Now they appear to not be working. No custom backgrounds work, not even the LV provided (steel, wood, clouds, etc) ones. I can see them in the browser but they won't go to the front panel background. Win 7 and LV2012. Can anyone duplicate this behavior?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I can't seem to duplicate what you are seeing. Can you share a little more about the situation? You are using LabVIEW 2012. Has it ever worked for you before on 2012? It seems to be a pretty straight forward proceedure.
I can't get background image on another machine, either. Both are Win 7 running LV2012. No trouble in 2011.
Both machines have a "coporate" version of Windows 7. That might be an issue. I have had nothing but trouble with it. Don't know how else to test this on a "clean" Win 7 install other than to take everyone's word for it. Thanks.
This might not be very convenient but you could try this to test you system.
This works. Not the first time I've had to hard-wire a solution with property nodes that used to work from the front panel or vi properties.
