  1. Hi @drjdpowell, @jb1592,

    Sorry for the issues. We're working hard on VIPM 2020.1 and hopefully this issue will be resolved.

    It's odd that the package builder window opens, yet the VIPM main window and the system tray icon aren't showing.  I've heard a few other reports of similar behavior and we've got it on our radar.  I don't think it's related to the "Error 42 occurred at (http response "404". URL Requested)" -- I think that was an issue with a missing file on NI's LVTN package repository.



  2. Hi @Vollinger. The issue is that LabVIEW addresses items in the palette by their display name. So, if two items have the name "Connect.vi" then LabVIEW will show the first one it finds, even if it's for a different toolkit. The solution/work-around is to change the palette display name of your "Connect.vi" to something like "Connect (MyComponent)".

    Here's where you would change that name in the palettes, via the palette editor.  Does that work for you?

  3. Hi @kosist and @wolfkil.

    We're working hard on a VIPM 2020.1 build. There are lots of improvements, one of which is that it does not use a sign-in to download packages from the VIPM Community Repository. You can get the latest release candidate and help us test in the VIPM 2020 beta forum. Sign up here to get access to that forum.

    We're working hard to make VIPM work well with new versions of LabVIEW. This latest 2020 release was difficult to full test, due to COVID-19 during the beta and launch, and a reduced number of beta testers. We're hoping VIPM 2020.1 addresses the issues people are facing, and works great for people. Thanks for your help in testing, if you're able.

    Similar issue, im not able to activate this via email. I send out the email request and never receive an Activation code. Is there an alternate method of activation available?

    Fixed now, looks like my account was not setup to receive emails from JKI

    Glad you figured it out, @Justin Thomas, and it was just an email issue. Hope Design Palette is working well for you.

  5. Hi Antoine,

    Thanks for posting this. I'm not sure what the issue is. I don't see the same thing. One thing that's different between your and my systems is you have a version "1" in the list. Would you be willing to send me a copy of that package? I suspect it's not a released package, but it appears to be causing some issues. Don't delete it quite yet, because I'd love to know what's going on.


  6. Hi Thomas,

    Actually, we use some 32-bit shared libraries, including OS libraries and also some 3rd party libraries, like the OpenG Zip Tools. For the MacOS beta, VIPM migrated to using command line zip/unzip tools and dropped a couple minor usability features that maybe nobody will notice (like extracting lvlib/lvclass icons from the XML file, which requires zlib deflation).  However, for MacOS, we figured it was better to have things mostly working OK in 64-bit than not at all. For Windows, we wouldn't want to lose any functionality.  I hear you about the memory limit issue.

    I hope that's helpful information, and please know we're not hesitating to explore 64-bit, for no good reasons.
