[Solved] VIPM crashes with file permission error


Recommended Posts

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

=========================
DMA hardware error detected.

Any idea where the files are that it doesn't have the right permissions for?

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.

Try running VIPM as an administrator.

I have had similar issues happen when trying to install packages that were cached from the tools network by another user.  Cached packages (and some other VIPM settings, I would assume) are stored in %ProgramData%, and Windows 10 seems to think that you shouldn't be able to access files in program data created by (in this case downloaded by) another user.

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.

      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/

      Hello everybody!
      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).

      This is an offshoot of https://lavag.org/topic/19414-can-i-save-as-a-vipb-file-in-vipm-and-keep-the-old-palette-if-i-change-the-source-directory/. That thread discusses hand-modifying the XML data in a *.vipb file, which Jim Kring himself seems to accept as a viable solution in some cases. However, when I try that, VIPM says, "VI Package Builder was unable to open the build spec due to an error."
      I initially thought this was new behaviour introduced in VIPM 2016, but downgrading to VIPM 2014 SP2 didn't change anything. I'm now unable to downgrade any further, as my PC is convinced that 2014 SP2 is still installed (even though it's not...)
      Could someone kindly try the attached *.vipb file and see if it opens? It's a bare minimum default file, with only a description summary added. I've hand-modified the summary from "Lorem ipsum" to "Larem ipsum" and now VIPM refuses to open it.
      Thanks!

      This maybe has been ask/answered/discuss before but here it is.
       
       
      Is there any VIPM alternative out there?
       
      If not, It will be very interesting to start a discussion whether an open source version is feasible and how many members in the community are willing to work on it.
       
      I know JKI has a great product already but seems like development has come to halt wrt VIPM.
       
      Any comments?
