Error when I created a file in Labview

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have created a file in LabVIEW and I want to save this. But, I am getting an error message in order to save this-

"Error 116 occurred at Unflatten From String in VideoMASTER Analyze VBI. VI->LabVIEW API Off-Line

It also shows the reason such as –

"A possible reason (s): LabVIEW: Unflatten or byte stream read operation failed due to corruption, unexpected or truncated data."

I am new to this software. I don’t know how to fix it up. I tried to Google it up and found some article about it. The result was nothing. I found nothing positive. 

A possible reason (s): LabVIEW: Unflatten or byte stream read operation failed due to corruption, unexpected or truncated data.

Then, I figured, I could set up rhino right but when I attempted to do that, I found this error message-

Error 1311. Source file not found:

C:Docume~1userlocals~1temprar$ Verify that the file exists and that you can access it. Can anybody help me with this?

Hello there,

Here are some reasons for this error:


Same data type must be input into the read from binary file VI. Input data type must be matching what you expect to read.

Wire only one scalar double to data type

Wire only one scalar double to data type, if you are reading an array of doubles (1D or 2D). Array of doubles (1D) –return if Read from Binary File VI.


Use of Datalog Vl which was designed for, cluster of multiple data types with the Read from Binary File VI. These VI still save the data as binary data.


You must look previous copy of the binary file before you modified the binary file with a text editor.

Error 1311 can be fixed by uninstalling the program and reinstalling it by copying the CD contents to the hard disk and running the installation within the hard drive.

Hope your problem gets solved soon. Best of luck!
