VI (System Exec).

Go to solution

Hello everyone,


I am currently working on a project for my bachelor thesis where I have to process video in Labview.
For several days I have been struggling with a problem, namely that a function see attachment (VI) can not be executed because of a VI (System Exec).
when i start the program i get the error message as in screenshot.

I would be very happy if one of you can help me to understand the problem, to solve it.

Thank you in advance

Well that's a rather generic error message and can mean it can't find the executable you are calling (ffprobe) or the video file...  


I get the same error because I don't have ffmpeg installed or select a video file to open.
