Issue Details

I downloaded LabVIEW on my computer, however, I cannot run it as it keeps crashing upon opening. How can I fix this?


• Check if you have installed all of the patches available to the LabVIEW version you are working with. The crash errors in old versions of LabVIEW are usually fixed with the patches. You can use NI Update Service to automatically download and install the patches; or you can search in NI's site for the patch you want install, download it and install it manually by executing the .exe file.

• You can uninstall or repair LabVIEW if your product is not functioning correctly. A guide on how to uninstall/repair LabVIEW in Windows is available here. If you are using Mac OS, following these steps to uninstall LabVIEW on your computer.
