I have VI Package Manager 2011.0.1 on Win7 with Labview 2011. I can start the VIMP just fine but if I try to install any package the program hangs. VIMP actually downloads the package, but after that the VIMP returns to the Package Information window where it states that the package is not compatible with the operating system of with the LabVIEW version although it was compatible before the intallation started. At the same time in the main window the satus bar reads "ready ...", but is un responsive and install and uninstall buttons below the menu bar are flickering. I have to kill VIMP at the task manager.
While being hung the programs writes to the error log file (C:/ProgramData/JKL/... ) multiple times in a second the same following peace of text:
=========== START of VIPM Error Message ===========
An internal VIPM Error has occured on: keskiviikko huhtikuu 25, 2012 at 01:02:41

LabVIEW: An input parameter is invalid. For example if the input is a path, the path might contain
a character not allowed by the OS such as ? or @.

This result huge error files tens of megabytes.
So what to do?
Also do I have to run the VIMP as administrator?
