Issue Details

I'm attempting to synchronize with the Icon library in the LabVIEW Icon editor Icon Editor>>Tools>>Synchronize With Library. However, I get a message saying "LabVIEW cannot reach the National Instruments Web Server. You must synchronize with the icon library manually".


If your LabVIEW Development System can't connect to the National Instruments Web Server, try using the manual method describes in the LabVIEW Help document: Synchronizing with the Icon Library Manually.

Additional Information

You will need to download both the .ZIP and .XML files. It is possible that the .XML file will open in the browser. If this is the case, do not attempt to copy and paste its contents to a text file, rather click Ctrl + S (or File>>Save in your web browser) to save the original document.
