Software

  • LabVIEW 2017 Full

Other

OS: Windows 7 (64-bit)

Issue Details

  • I recently upgraded to LabVIEW 2017, 64-bit.
  • When I try to create an installer from my project I get the following error: "Error -14 Occurred at MDFCommon_Open.vi. MDF library missing. Reinstall NI software."

Solution

  • Make sure you have administrator privileges on your computer.
  • If you know you do, and still have this issue, try running LabVIEW as an administrator.
    • Right click on your LabVIEW desktop icon and click 'Run as administrator'.
  • If neither of these work, try force reinstalling your LabVIEW software.

Additional Information

MDF stands for Metadeployment Framework. LabVIEW must have administrator access to the MDF folder in your computer's LabVIEW Program Files in order for it to successfully build applications.
