Issue Details

When I try to compile my FPGA project on LabVIEW, I get the following error message.
 
Due to bad installation or configuration, the compile worker does not have any compile capability. Please fix any issues and restart.

Solution

One possible reason behind this error is that the FPGA Compile Worker uses Vivado to compile. If Vivado is not installed in the same directory as the FPGA Compile Worker, the compilation will crash because the compiler is not able to find the Vivado tool.

To solve this, make sure that the FPGA Compile Worker is installed in the same directory as the Vivado Compile Tool. Make sure that the Compile Worker is using the right directory.
