Issue Details

I built a LabWindows™/CVI™ executable, but when I try to deploy it on another computer I get the following error:

"Developer Error. The following Errors were found in your ini file: 1. Missing Section: [O] 2. Missing Key: [O] Path Correct the ini file and try again". The details section reads: 

\ConfigInfo.cpp(3422): InstallerError 11006 
Developer Error. The following errors were found in your ini file: 
1. Missing Section: [O] 
2. Missing Key: [O] Path 

Correct the ini file and try again. "


You can resolve this issue through one of the troubleshooting steps below:

  • This error can be caused when the application name or title has an equal sign, “=”.  In this case, the ini file will point to something that was not intended. Please remove the "=" and any other uncommon characters. If you have this error but do not have any invalid characters in the title, your exe may have become corrupted. You can try recreating it. For this, you need to change the name to remove the "=" sign and rebuild the executable.
  • The error could be caused by a corrupted LabWindows™/CVI™ installation. You will need to reinstall the LabWindows™/CVI™ software. Follow the instructions in Repair Software In NI Package Manager (NIPM)
    to repair your installation. After repairing the LabWindows™/CVI™ development environment you need to rebuild the executable for your application.
