Issue Details

I am using FlexLogger, LabVIEW NXG or DAQExpress on Windows 7.
If I try to perform one of the following operations:
  • select back and forth between document tabs
  • add a new indicator (for example a Speedometer) to a FlexLogger screen
  • add a new graph or other indicator in LabVIEW NXG
the software crashes with the following error:
TypeInitializationException
 

In some cases I can also get FileFormatException error. 

How can I solve the problem?
 

Solution

This is an issue with the Microsoft .NET Framework January 2018 Security and Quality Rollup that affects Windows 7 computers.

To solve the problem, you should update the version of the Microsoft Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, and 4.7.1 for Windows 7 SP1 and Server 2008 R2 SP1 by following the steps in How to obtain and install the update section.
 

Additional Information

If you are unable to find the update in Windows Updates, you can also download it from Microsoft Update Catalog.
