Issue Details

I am trying to open a LabVIEW VI, but I cannot open it because of a missing item. I get a Load and Save Warning List Dialog Box with the following warning type:
Missing NI Module, Toolkit, or Driver

How can I fix this?


The dialog box should mention which software or driver is missing under the Missing Components section. For example, in the example image above, the software missing is the NI Vision Development Module 2017). To get rid of this, you will need to download the software that is missing and activate it, if necessary.
