Issue Details

When I open a .vi file double clicking on it, I receive an error saying :
 

A WEBSITE WANTS TO OPEN WEB CONTENT USING THIS PROGRAM ON YOUR COMPUTER WHILE TRYING TO OPEN A VI
 

When I click on "Allow" nothing happens. How do I resolve this error?


Solution

To solve the issue follow these steps:

  1. Locate the file you want to open, right click on it and go to Properties, then click on "Change…"


 
  1. On the next window double-click on "LabVIEW"

The LabVIEW version depends on the software you have installed on your computer.
 

  1. On the Window click on "OK", this will save the process.
  1. Open the .vi file.

This error occurs when the .vi files are not associated to LabVIEW software.
