Missing UI Manager in VeriStand

Issue Details

I found out that the option to launch UI Manager from Project Explorer is missing.
If I double click on the existing .nivsprj, the following message prompts out.
In order to use this feature you must install VeriStand UI Manager (only supported on 64-bit operating systems).
If you would like to remove this file from your project, select it and press the Delete button on the project toolbar.


For the UI Manager to be working properly, the UI Manager has to be installed on the machine. If you have installed UI Manager, confirm the NationalInstruments.VeriStand.UIManager.Application.exe is located on your machine. The default location is <NI VeriStand UI Manager>\NationalInstruments.VeriStand.UIManager.Application.exe.  You can try to copy the file from a working machine.

Additional Information

The UI Manager is a feature available after NI VeriStand 2015 SP1. Check out What's New in NI VeriStand 2015 SP1.
