Issue Details

I recently updated the NI software on my test machine, including the NI-272x Reference VIs . When I run my LabVIEW code, I get the following error: 
SubVI 'ni272x Initialize Session with Configuration.Vi' is not executable. 

How can I resolve this error? 


This could be related to some dependencies not being found or present for the toolkit, module or driver you are trying to use, in order to ensure everything is installed in the correct location Uninstall your NI software and Reinstall in the correct order. (Make sure you install LabVIEW first, and then the Drivers before installing add ons)
