Issue Details

I am trying to download a package from VI Package Manager website and see the following pop-up in my browser when I click the Download button, however nothing happens when I click Open URL:VIPM Protocol.

Solution

If the download from the VI Package Manager (VIPM) website doesn't start, verify that VIPM is installed. It can be downloaded from here.

If, after installing VIPM, the download from a website still doesn't work, download the required package from VIPM application instead by following these steps:

     1. Open VIPM, select the required LabVIEW version and enter the name of the package in the search bar at the top:


     2. Double click the package name in the list and click Install in the pop-up window:
