Issue Details

When attempting to install or uninstall NI software, I get an error stating that my version of NI Package Manager is too old.

A package you selected, or one of its dependencies, requires the latest version of Package Manager to continue with the installation. Visit ni.com/info and enter the Info Code NIPMUpdate for more information.



This version of Package Manager is too old to handle newer installed software.

Solution

The first error appears when you try to install a package with a higher compatibility version than that specified by the installed version of NIPM. The second error appears when you have software already installed on your system that has a higher compatibility version than that specified by the installed version of NIPM. To resolve these errors, upgrade your NIPM version.
 
  1. Restart NI Package Manager.
  2. Click on the Upgrade now banner at the top of the window to upgrade to the latest version. If restarting does not trigger an automatic update, move to the next step.
  3. To manually update NI Package Manager, download NI Package Manager from ni.com. If you have an offline machine, refer to Download Individual Offline Installers for NI Software to use the offline installer.
