Issue Details

LabVIEW crashes when I run a VI that connects to a Microsoft Access database multiple times. How can I prevent this?

Solution

This is a known issue documented with CAR 642656. The suggested workaround is to "Change the VI to prompt the user to configure the connection. After completing the prompt steps once, you can reconnect the connection information string and no longer see the crash." Alternatively, you can use Access Database Engine 2013 or earlier.
