Error 1671 Occurred at Open Python Session

Updated Jan 13, 2020

Issue Details

I installed Python by anaconda onto my system. When I go to use the function Open Python Session in LabVIEW, I receive the Error 1671 below:

Error 1671 occurred at Open Python Session in [filename]
Possible reason(s):
LabVIEW: (Hex 0x687) There was an error in executing the specified function.

Python returned the following error: Error creating host process

Solution

Install Python directly onto the system, rather than using the anaconda environment. This should allow the Open Python Session function to operate successfully.
