Issue Details

I am using the LabVIEW's System Exec VI to run a command prompt. When I run this, it opens command prompt, then just hangs, and doesn't do anything. It also doesn't throw an error. What is happening?


This can happen if you do not have correct admin privileges. Make sure you have admin privileges for cmd and LabVIEW. Make sure you give admin privileges to the correct version and bitness of LabVIEW.
