  1. OK, seems like there's a way to manually install the packages without the VIPM. On my W10 machine the VIPM would not start, so I copied from a W7 VIPM to W10 machine manually. As far as I can tell there are two main directories you'll need to copy: C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2018\menus\Categories\JKI Tools This has the MENUS you'll need. Next, there's the VI directory, you may need to open one of the VI's in the package to determine the location of VIs: C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2018\vi.lib\addons\_JKI.lib W10 you gotta love it! It's so efficient.
  2. How about this idea? Could I install the package manually? I mean if I install the package I want on another machine, how hard would it be to install/Copy it from one machine to the other? My home PC has LV2018 with W7. Seems W7 doesn't have a problem running VIPM. Thanks! Doug
  3. Another note, my OLD Windows 7 PC is running the latest version of VIPM with no problems, but, the old W7 Machine is running LV2015 and not LV2018. I'm guessing it's a combination of W10 and/or LV2018 preventing VIPM from running correctly.
  4. I started looking around trying to figure out why VIPM wouldn't start. I found the "Vi Package Manager.ini" file: l tried finding the "Settings.ini" file, nowhere on my computer is there a VIPM\Settings.ini file. Could this missing "Settings.ini" be causing the VIPM to not start up?
  5. Are there any links to older versions of VIPM? Still no luck getting the Free Version to work.
  6. I was able to squeeze another error message out from the Desktop. See Attached. I thought this was going to work! My NI PSP Service Locator wasn't started! (See attached) Same results, after I started the NI PSP Service Locator. VIPM, didn't start.
  7. VIPM worked before, but, now it will not start. I have W10 Pro 64BIT, Running Labview 2018 Version 18.0.1f2. If I try to run from my desktop, I see the VIPM Icon briefly, then it disappears. (See attached). I next tried to use the "INSTALL" button from the jki.net website, this time I get an error message. (See Attached). Things I've tried: Run as Administrator Disable Anti-Virus Repair using the VIPM install program. Re-Install. Reboot.
