LabVIEW Fails to Launch from Windows Start Menu

  • LabVIEW

Issue Details

I navigate to the LabVIEW icon in the start menu and click it to open LabVIEW. However, when I click it, nothing happens.


It is possible that some LabVIEW files may have become corrupted. Try the following if do not have NI Package Manager:
  1. Repair LabVIEW from the Windows Control Panel .
  2. If you are seeing the same behavior after the repair, force reinstall LabVIEW.
If you have NI Package Manager, uninstall LabVIEW through NIPM.
