Issue Details

I am opening up a LabVIEW project that was completed and working a while back.  There has been no changes made to the project, but when I open the project I get a message of Missing resource files nimotion.rc and nimcca.rc.  How do I get the project back to a working state?


The message of Missing resource files nimotion.rc and nimcca.rc indicates that the LabVIEW SoftMotion Module is either not installed for the version of LabVIEW you are using or that there is some software corruption occurring.
  1. Check in NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (NI MAX) to make sure that LabVIEW SoftMotion Module is listed under the version of LabVIEW you are using.  NI MAX >> Software >> LabVIEW XXXX >> NI SoftMotion. 
  2. If NI SoftMotion is listed under the version of LabVIEW that you are using, but still giving the same missing resource files message, then repair NI LabVIEW SoftMotion Module.
  3. If the message continues to occur after repairing LabVIEW SoftMotion Module, force reinstall the module.
