A week or so ago I was trying the LabVIEW Desktop Execution Trace Toolkit for Windows. To enable it, I had to go to LabVIEW>Tools>Options>VI Server: Configuration and enable the TCP/IP check box under protocols. The tool works fine, but now I cannot edit or run VI's from TestStand.
In the Step Settings window in TestStand, I get the red exclamation mark comes up with the error "LabVIEW: VI server access denied." This started happening immediately after I enabled the TCP/IP check box, but it won't go away after I deselect it or restart LabVIEW/TestStand etc. I've toggled the LabVIEW adaptor to run-time mode and back to development. Error still there.
I saw a few related threads here on the forum, but nothing that seems relevant.
I am using LabVIEW 8.6 and TestStand 4.1.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I believe you're running into a bug in the toolkit which inadvertantly locks out VI server access. Check out the following article and see if the remedy works for you: http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/75D823EF2C4EBEC086257554005767A2
Thanks for the link. I had not seen that. Unfortunately the HighlightObject By Context-VI-UID.vi Allow access option is already selected. I toggled it and restarted just to be sure. Looks like there are other settings in that dialog that I could experiment with.
You've misread the document. You need to replace the "HighlightObject By Context-VI-UID.vi" entry with a single asterisk (which means any).
