Issue Details

I am trying to load my project and VI's in LabVIEW but they keep failing to load. The project and VI's were saved on a computer (Windows 10) with the exact same version of LabVIEW but when I try opening them on this computer (Windows 7) they attempt to load but do not. No error dialog or warning occurs, it just doesn't complete the load. Also, when I try to mass compile parts of the project on my Windows 7 computer, it can crash LabVIEW. What is happening?


  1. Ensure that each computer has the same patch update of the LabVIEW edition installed. LabVIEW patches are available for download on our Downloads Page.
  2. Restart the computer
  3. Once completed you may need to compile the project and directories for the VI's to function properly. Follow this guide for compiling help: How to Mass Compile in LabVIEW.
