Software

  • LabVIEW 2019
  • LabVIEW Sound and Vibration Toolkit 2019

Issue Details

  • When I build and run an executable using the LabVIEW Sound and Vibration Toolkit 2019, I get the following error message:
LabVIEW: (Hex 0xF)Resource not found.
sndvib.dll
An error occured loading VI <name>.vi


  • When I build and run an executable using the LabVIEW Sound and Vibration Toolkit 2020, I get the following error message
Missing external function sndvib.dll:<function> in VI <name>.vi

Solution

This is a known issue. As a workaround, kindly perform the following steps:
  1. Search for LVASPT_TFA.dll. The file is located in the following path depending on the version of LabVIEW installed.
  • C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 20xx\resource
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 20xx\resource
  1. Copy LVASPT_TFA.dll into the Data folder of the executable.
​​​​​​

The built application should works now.
