Re: Programmatically reload Project Providers?
So someone should post a VIPM IE topic here: http://ideas.jki.net/ We, like NI, also use idea exchanges as a guage for interest in a particular feature for VIPM. However this has a higher importance in the context of VIPM than LabVIEW because this hits the core of what VIPM is all about. If you install a package and cannot see the result of the install, then we get support calls and it's VIPM's fault regardless of how much we blame LabVIEW or the package developer (we don't really do that ).
So I think having a LV restart dialog could work and it obviously should be ignorable by the end user because like Daklu wrote, they might be in a state where a restart doesn't make sense.
