Issue Details

I have an executable that crashes when I use the InstallPopup function in the LabWindows/CVI™ environment. 

Solution

​​​​​In order to overcome this problem there are several options available:
  • Check if InstallPopup is in modal mode, so it is used correctly among all the different approaches to multithread.
  • Try to debug executable release generating a MAP file.
  • Still assuming that the problem could be given by the popup in modal mode, try to use Win32 (SDK) Message box in modal mode.
  • If you have still problems, be sure that using InstallPopup in modal Mode,you must have all the process that handle the user interface under the same thread.
