  1. Turns out that deleting the VIPM cache (C:\ProgramData\JKI\VIPM\cache) fixes the problem. With the cache folder gone I restarted VIPM and it created it again with fixed permissions and running happily for myself and the system user which is used for CI builds.
  2. You're right, running VIPM as admin works but I'd still like to know how to fix the problem rather than work around it.
  3. No, the account is fine. The CI build (system account) still works. The problem is when I log in manually to debug a problem. I just don't know where to look for those files it's trying to access or which files those are.
  4. Hi, Over night something changed on my windows 10 build server and I can now no longer open VIPM. It just shows the splash screen and then closes again. Here's the log file: =========== START of VIPM 2018.0.0 (build 2025) Error Message =========== An internal VIPM 2018.0.0 (build 2025) Error has occured on: Tuesday August 20, 2019 at 03:19:48 PM = Automated Message Start = Error 8 occurred at Open/Create/Replace File in NI_LVConfig.lvlib:Parse Config to Queue.vi->NI_LVConfig.lvlib:Load.vi->NI_LVConfig.lvlib:Open Config Data (compatibility).vi->DDEFA056211BA4DA4D215C322E067D90->621BFCD461979D3C7127139A69154E03->762BBE85A007 171D5A65B48289D23361->46803A2448FAC5F85BFF8F5C199E9C6F->OGPM Class.lvlib:7D7C5CD8C5D361C01081DF5613237E15->OGPM Class.lvlib:D69AB3997B80ACD75689430E3922612C->OGPM Class.lvlib:OGPM Init.vi->VIPM Splash.vi Possible reason(s): LabVIEW: File permission error.

  5. Or Get Volume Info if you're only interested in the "C:\" part of it
  6. Thanks for throwing ideas around. Let's debunk some of them. I don't think it's a hardware problem, because a power cycle of the DAQ wouldn't fix that reliably and a reboot of the PC wouldn't break it reliably. The DAQ is connected to an Intel NUC directly to the onboard USB port. I tried different ones with no luck. There is no funny software running that interferes with the USB ports PC is set to never sleep. Power management was enabled for USB hubs, so I turned that off and rebooted the PC. Same problem Status Code: -88705 The specified device is not present or is not active in the system. The device may not be installed on this system, may have been unplugged, or may not be installed correctly. Next, I unplugged the USB cable and plugged it into a different port and the DAQ showed up in MAX. Rebooted the PC and it was still there. Turns out not all USB ports are the same. Previously I only tried the ports at the front of the NUC. This time I tried one at the back. That fixed it on both PCs. Fix: Don't plug your USB DAQ into a "charging USB port"
  7. Hi, I'm having a problem with two of my PCs that have a USB-6356 DAQ connected. Every time the PC reboots the DAQ isn't recognised in NI MAX or LabVIEW or NI Device Monitor. The DAQ reappears after I power cycle it. Any thoughts what the problem might be? PC is running windows 10 Pro and LabView 16 Cheers
  8. Great, that helped. There's no installer but I've never been brave enough to look inside that file. Got what I need now. Cheers
  9. Hey Michael, Thanks for the insight. Could you release the installers for the older versions of VIPM so we can fix VIPM installations that got updated/broken by accidentally installing a new version of VIPM with an update of LabVIEW over the top? That would be awesome
  10. I'm on your side, I often do the same if I can be bothered. In rare cases I even edit the GetAttributes to entirely remove the cluster out; not sure if that actually helps but it does break the "GOOP/Add Method" a little. You should update the template and create a pull request. Interesting choice on ignoring the incoming error when you get the attributes.
  11. Hooovahh, as is so often the case, the best solution is the difficult one. Sending the entire content once and then keeping track of changes in a clever way transparent to the "user". Sending only 4 is definitely going to cause pain in user experience. Flavio, no idea why IE works and Edge doesn't, sorry Maybe just stick with Chrome if you can
  12. How about the OpenGDS way of things? Just put a property node on the BD that references a front-panel element. Like this:
  13. I've updated the repo on github with what was in your .zip Unfortunately, I'm still stuck on 2016 so I couldn't even open it ... one day
  14. You should check out master, make your changes locally in a new branch, push and create a pull request. Alternatively, I can add you as a contributor. Then you can go the nasty way of just merging your changes in without creating a pull-request. Or, if you give me some time, I can make those changes.
  15. No me neither. Looking at the BD example, it seems the in-place structure was blown up by the Bundle by Name node. Is it even possible to change the font used in those? Yeah, I'll report it. All build machines have scaling set to 100%. It's only my laptop screen that is set to 200% and I can't take that out of the equation. All our developers have high DPI (200%) laptops and regular (100%) 2nd monitors. I can't edit the scaling on the build machine because it's headless and the setting is grayed out when remoting in.
  16. I do. Code is developed on a surface tab with high DPI (200%) screen plus a 1080p 2nd monitor. I wonder if it matters which screen the BD was on last... Unfortunately, my eyes are too old to run the tab at 100% I'm already building on a different machine - in fact, I've tried two different ones. Same mess for both. The only time I don't get a problem is when I build locally, but that's not an option since all our builds go through Jenkins. I do use application font but I was hoping not having to go through thousands of VIs to change their font setting. But it seems that's the only way Has anyone scripted that? Thanks guys
  17. Hi, I'm using VIPM to build my device drivers and project templates into vi packages which are then used by other developers. During the build process some of the front panel elements get blown up as if the text size was changed and then reduced again but the size of the control doesn't return to its original size. A similar thing happens on the block diagram. Some structures (set to auto-grow) end up wider in the package than in their original source as if a BD element inside the structure was increased in size and then decreased again. While that's not a terrible thing to happen in the drivers, it really kills the templates because the first hour is spent to fix up cosmetics... I've attached some screenshots. Anyone know how to fix that?
  18. OpenGDS does a good job with updating VI icons. It lets you design your class icon and then automatically updates all VIs in that class. Uses the file names to generate text in the lower part
  19. I understand this can be an issue for users and I have something to add: The select tool on a graph/chart turns into tiny black cross-hairs impossible to locate on black background. Terrible! But as a developer, I wonder how you deal with the fact that you have to have the help window and the probe window on the same screen as your BD for the scroll down menus, context menus and mouse-hover displays (during debugging) to work. It drives me crazy. Although, this might only be an issue when you work with two screens and they run on different zoom levels.
  20. Unfortunately, I'm still stuck in 2016 land. But JKSH's suggestion got me going. Thanks
  21. Hi, I'm receiving a JSON string from a web API, which I'm trying to convert into a cluster (of clusters) but I've run into some problems: 1) Sometimes the order of the elements in the JSON string changes, which causes my conversion to fail. 2) Sometimes the "object" returned via JSON is null, which causes my conversion to fail if I use clusters within clusters. It works with variants in clusters but then I need to convert the all the variants manually Is there any way to improve my code to fix those problems? The attached snippet is a simplified version. In my project, the first JSON string to data is done in a library. The second conversion from "result" variant to data is done in my application. This makes a direct conversion from JSON string more difficult.
  22. That's very much what my plugin is doing as well. Now I just need to figure out how to handle .lvproj
  23. Hi, I'm trying to improve a quickdrop plugin that removes compiled code for my project. I noticed that it doesn't check the box in the project properties but I can't figure out how to do that. I tried reading the "NI.LV.All.SourceOnly" property via the project invoke node "Get Item" but I'm not getting anything back. Is it possible? I can't text edit the project file, because it's currently open.
