Issue Details

I have converted a VI from LabVIEW 2016 to LabVIEW 2014, but getting an error 6 while opening version 14 of VI with LabVIEW 14. How can I resolve this?


This behaviour could be of 2 reasons:
1) You are referring to some file in block diagram or using some images on front panel to which, version 14 of VI is not able to refer to. To resolve this, make sure that version 14 of VI also has the same access and rights to the files being used in version 16 of VI.

2) Your VI might be corrupted. In case you are able to open this VI in any machine or LabVIEW version, it is advised that you copy this code into new VI of same LabVIEW version and save this.
