Issue Details

I am trying to send email alerts on LabVIEW 2016 (student version) by using the LabVIEW example Send Email using SMTP, but I get the following error:

Error -363516 ocurred at

Possible reason (s):

LabVIEW: Client does not have access to the specified resource (access forbidden).

Complete call chain:

This error is shown in the following dialog box.


The description for Error - 363516 states that "Client does not have access to the specified resource-access forbidden". This indicates that the version that you are using (Student Version) has limitations regarding the access to some resources or examples. 

To resolve this error, you have to run the LabVIEW example Send Email using SMTP in a computer that has LabVIEW Full Development system installed. This version of LabVIEW will run the example Send Email using SMTP, successfully.
