This is indeed a strange error! I have found a few records of it occurring, and it looks like a couple of things might fix the issue.
1) If you are using an anti-virus software (such as Norton), disable the “script blocking” feature of Norton
2) Check to see if you have old versions of the runtime engine installed – go to add/remove programs and look for old versions, then go to “National Instruments” and click “change” – look for versions here too that you might not need.
You might want to try these things before trying a reinstall of LabVIEW, though that might fix the problem as well. Hopefully this helps, please let me know how it goes-
Sorry to hear that the Norton configuration is locked down, because we have about half a dozen instances of this error occurring and all but one were fixed by changing the Norton settings.
There are a couple of other questions that I didn’t ask but
might be relevant if there is to be any workaround. Are you running any
I don’t know what role (if any) NI Serial might have in this, but if you are interested in getting that driver, you can find it here: http://digital.ni.com/softlib.nsf/webcategories/85256410006C055586256BE600707F28?opendocument&node=1...
Thanks again for the reply, let me know how things go-
It seems to occur whenever I edit a VI and run the VI under the development portion under Labview 8. I ran a small test case (may not be representative). I did the following:
1. ran a VI that use the fieldpoint device (ethernet interface), stopped the vi, and closed Labview. After the VI run, the error is generated.
I am running XP professional. I have no other computer to test it out, as the license only runs on this machine. The run-time versions do not seem to have this problem.
I believe Labview 7 & 7.1 run-time was installed when I loaded NI-Serial-3.0. I need this module for one of the application. I need it for the installation project where I deploy the program. The program uses the serial interface to the Fieldpoint device.
You are missing the point with regard to Norton Anti-virus. Any modification to the Norton antivirus is locked out by the IT people.
As for closing the Fieldpoint, this has to be done by Labview. I am debugging the program and constantly starting and stopping the fieldpoint. These programs are designed to run continuously thus closing the fieldpoint again, is not an option. In fact, I specifically design the front pannel so that the users are not able to stop the program.
