Got an error while installing LabVIEW 8.6

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I was installing LabVIEW 8.6 to a new PC with Win 7 but it failed sending a build error message (see screenshot below). 

I tried it for several times but the error seemed to happen again and again. 

Can you please help solve the error?  

Thanks in advance.

Try the following workaround:

Try moving some project files that you have stored on the desktop target and paste them to a PDA, and then move them back to the desktop. If the files recompile fine thereafter without generating any errors, then the possible cause of the problem will be with build specification API which could have deprecated some functionality between the versions of the application.

Use an installer build specification so that you distribute the llb's that you are using and other resources too, and that you will do by adding the llb as a file in a virtual folder as opposed to including the literal source distribution llb that appears in the project explorer.

Just try the workaround above and see if it will work for you.
