This issue is due to SystemLink being unable to communicate with the proxy server. Please follow these steps to properly configure the proxy server:
psexec64 -u "nt authority\network service" -i cmd.exe
- This will open a new cmd window that will run as a ‘NetworkService’ user - from there, run:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
- Go to Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings and set the default proxy address for the server.
- Delete “[nipkg]proxyserver=address:port” from C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\NI Package Manager\Settings\nipkg.ini
- (optional) Save the user and password in stored credentials by running (if proxy needs authentication):
cmdkey /generic: <proxy-server-ip> /user:<user> /pass
