Upgrading a package that has a locked file

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for fresh ideas involving an issue I have with upgrading a specific kind of package.


I'm building a package that uses a DLL, and the DLL is used by LabVIEW after the first restart since installing.


So when I want to upgrade the package, VIPM returns an error 8 upon overwriting the DLL, and does not succeed in installing the package (and all other files are removed).


To succesfully install the package I need to

  • fail in upgrading the package (or remove the package)
  • restart LabVIEW (and get a dialog from LabVIEW)
  • upgrade the package
  • restart LabVIEW


Does anybody have an idea how to smooth this process?
