[Solved] VIPM crashes with file permission error

Recommended Posts


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

Possible reason(s):
LabVIEW:  File permission error. You do not have the correct permissions for the file.

= Error Handler Call Chain Start =
    VIPM Splash.vi

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

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.
