Issue Details

I use the LabVIEW Python Node, the Python Code is stored on a network storage and the following error occurs:
Code : 1671 
Python returned the following error: <class 'UnicodeDecodeError'> 
'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xfc in position 34: invalid start byte 


Unfortunately the LabVIEW Python Node does not support network storage in LabVIEW 2018.
Move or copy the code you want to call to a local storage.
