VIPM.io now allows you to post LabVIEW Resources, Ideas, and Tools. For example, you could post a link to a video tutorial or blog article about a package. You can also post ideas, like feature requests or new tools. Best of all, package developers are notified when you post your ideas and resources, and you can comment and discuss posts with the community. Take a look at this video to learn more: https://www.vipm.io/posts/664960df-f111-4e13-989a-24be8207182d/
Wondering how many people have tried the new vipm.io site. We have added a ton of features to make it easy to Discover LabVIEW Tools and there are some cool ones coming soon.
Check it out and let me know what you think 😀
I am using the newest version (2020.1) of VIPM, but I had this same issue with the release of 2020.
For two of the packages that I have created for internal repos, VIPM has decided that I need a System Package. The posts I have seem from JKI indicate that this is a sub-package that is used internally to the main package, and should be automatically included.
However, after I am seeing issues on any PC other than the PC where the package was built.
Is there a setting I am missing?
Showing the (System) package as a dependency:
Package Configuration in the VI Package Configuration Editor
Package installed, on the PC where the package was initially created (no issues, no exclamation mark)
Package when installed on another PC (NOTICE: the System Package name has changed and there is a red exclamation mark, but there are no errors shown on install of the package).
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 ===========

Any idea where the files are that it doesn't have the right permissions for?
Since stumbling across the G Package Manager (GPM) while looking through this discussion on package managing I can't shake the idea that is is precisely the system that I would like to implement throughout the rest of the developers in my team for working on LabVIEW projects across multiple sites and with parallel upgrades to code to handle ongoing facility updates.
However as I am sure is the case with many companies, we need to maintain our data locally for corporate reasons. There was a reference to being able to have a local repository in the initial NI Week presentation by Derek but since then I have not seen any other reference to it and there is limited information available about the processes. Has anyone got any experience with the operation of GPM for internal use, or even any use with GPM in general? From looking through the Lava and NI forums, doesn't seem like many people have picked it up or at least haven't posted anything about their experiences with it.
