Error generation preview in Installer Properties caused by Automotive Diagnostic Command Set 1.2.0


Recommended Posts

The Automotive Diagnostic Command Set (ADCS) in version 1.2.0 when used will prevent the installer to generate a preview, set properties of any application executable, and building the installer, due to a bad linked VI. The installer dialog will just show '<Error generating preview>' in the application details section. I got this issue on a new installation of LabVIEW 2013 and this behaviour has since been reproduced by an NI technician. A bug report has been filled in:


CAR 429636


There is currently no way to build the installer including the application. It is not possible to add the offending VI to the library, as the library is locked & password protected. My solution was to build an installer for just the additional installers (runtimes, etc..) and to manually copy the application files to the target system. Here is a copy of the issue details from the initial thread that is also linked below. Please reffer to the thread to get more detailed information about the circumstances that causes the issue (and to see some actual pictures):




The Automotive Diagnostic Command Set in version 1.2.0 does update the compatibility to LV2013 and adds a new feature that causes my problem.


Add an INI key to the LabVIEW.ini


The build log is created next to the *.lvproj file and directly shows the problem. Here is the important line of the build log:

The file at 'C:Program Files (x86)National InstrumentsLabVIEW 2013vi.libAutomotive Diagnostic Command SetDiagnostic Transport.llbOpen Diagnostic on LIN.vi' was expected to have the qualified name 'NI_Automotive Diagnostic Command Set.lvlib:Open Diagnostic on LIN.vi', but has the qualified name 'Open Diagnostic on LIN.vi'.




Notice: I was able to start the build, because the installer has already been configured in LabVIEW 2011 SP1 & ADCS 1.1.0.
