Issue Details

I receive the following error when running the vlmclient.exe on my system.
 

Solution

This error may occur if NI License Manager has not been installed. NI License Manager ships with software products that require a license to use. The vlmclient.exe will configure NI License Manager to connect to the VLM server. Without this software the vlmclient.exe may produce this error. To resolve it, install NI License Manager or National Instruments' software that includes it.
