  1. Any chance you were able to fix the error? This package still doesn't install properly (in VIPM it claims there is a missing dependency, but it doesn't find one to install).
  2. 0_o, Thanks for the info, but I'm not sure that helps. This is occurring before the Welcome screen; isn't that what skipNavigatorDialog=True would suppress? Also, this apparently is a different dialog from that controlled by "Show the login prompt at LabVIEW Startup time", as I get an additional login dialog with that option checked
  3. crelf, Thanks for the answer, but I already have that unchecked. Please see the screenshots below:
  4. LabVIEW 2009 is asking me to log in, with only one user. LabVIEW 8.6 did not do this. Is there a way to disable the dialog? Or is it standard behavior starting with 2009? It is a minor annoyance, but when drop through clicks are disabled, it is tricky to get this dialog to let me past.
  5. JG, I'm embarrassed; I didn't realize you were the last poster on the thread!
  6. JG, Sorry, I got a notification of your post as I was submitting my update. Check my edit above! Thanks though!
  7. *SEE EDIT BELOW* I see that MGI has been updating their (excellent, btw) freeware VI library (http://www.mooregood...abViewStuff.htm). Unfortunately, it looks as though they are publishing versions saved in the newest LabVIEW versions, since the 3.8-10 version doesn't want to install in VIPM for me. This presents me with a problem. I have customers on executables built with 8.6.1, and it is not ideal for me to ask anyone who updates to download the 2009 RTE as well (don't even have 2010 yet). Does anyone have the latest MGI VIs saved in LabVIEW 8.6.1? If nobody has them available, I can ask MGI, but I don't want to ask too much of them Thanks to anyone who can help. *EDIT* I apologize to MGI, but apparently there is a bug in VIPM that may cause this (can be caused by read-only files in the package, among other possibilities). I had the latest two versions on my hard drive, so I tried opening both at the same time, and I was able to install the latest one without trouble.

  8. Aristos, I recorded a video with Jing. I found out while doing this that if you mouse over the newly displayed context menu (after a right-click), it apparently clears the selection request. If you don't mouseover the context menu, you get the selection rectangle. Also, this only happens on actual context menus, not tool menus. Thanks, -Ian LabVIEW_RightClickBug.swf UPDATE: Posted at NI.com here: http://forums.ni.com...le/td-p/1232057
  9. Aristos, Thanks for your input here. I am running Windows XP SP3 on a laptop. I have the OpenG package installed and MGI VIs, but not much else regarding third-party addons. The problem is repeatable every time for me.
  10. So you are saying you don't have the "f1" fix installed? (To fix the multiple object Properties page bug)
  11. Is anybody running LabVIEW 2010? Do you have this issue as well?
  12. I consider myself to be pretty advanced when it comes to searching; I couldn't find a single reference to this however. Anytime I right-click on the FP, and dismiss the tool menu, I get a selection rectangle. If I don't catch it, moving outside the bounds of the FP will cause the FP to scroll to continue my unwanted "selection". So far this has been repeatable every time. I am running LabVIEW 8.6.1f1, so I am curious to see whether this exists in LV2009. Also, I don't remember seeing this with previous versions, but it's hard to recall. What do you all think? (I can't imagine this being expected behavior) -Ian
