Software

  • LabVIEW
  • Package Manager

Issue Details

I'm trying to install LabVIEW 2019 on my computer. I downloaded the small installer online. It starts to the process but when it gets to "Initializing transaction" section it suddendly stops and doesn't give me any information about any error.



I've already tried the following steps and it still gives me the same error:
  • Using the Offline Installer for NI Package Manager
  • Using the Offline Installer for LabVIEW 2019
  • Using the Offline Installer for NI Package Manager without an active internet connection
What can I do to fix this error?
