LabVIEW Randomly Crashes When Reading From an Access Database

Updated Apr 3, 2018

Issue Details

I'm currently reading an ACCESS database (.accdb) using database connectivity toolkit and Microsoft Office 16.0 Access Database Engine. When I run the VI, LabVIEW randomly crashes. I have the error handler, but it doesn't give any error.

Solution

This is a driver issue with the MS access database engine and it has been reported in :
  • Microsoft Office 16.0 Access Database Engine
  • Microsoft Office 12.0 Access Database Engine.¬†
The workaround for this issue is to install Microsoft JET 4.0 instead, and convert the database in .mdb format so that it is compatible with Microsoft JET 4.0.
