VIPM 2012, cannot find or install Actor Framwork

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install the Actor Framework (https://decibel.ni.com/content/groups/actor-framework-2011?view=overview), 2011 version, but I find no traces of it in VIPM 2012.

I downloaded the Actor Framework manually (https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-23396) and tried "Open Package File(s) and pointed to the spec file.

I then got the message: "This package is not compatible with your operation system or any LabVIEW system installed on you computer".

Any idea what could be wrong?

OK, so the download from the https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-17193 is the one I shoulld use anyway.

 

I have downloaded that Actor Framework for LV 2011, and I have LV 2011 installed and I have VIPM 2012 installed.

But I still get that ERROR message. So there is something wrong, but what??? I use Windows 7 Enterprise.

Have you tried saving the VIP file to your desktop and double-clicking on it?

 

Also in the original post you mention a spec file. What's a spec file?

 

Now I understand what's wrong!

When I clicked on the link to the vip-file here https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-23396, my computer saved it as a zip-file.

Then I unpacked the zip file and it contained two folders, a bmp-file and a file named "spec". The VI Package Manager could of course not handle that.

 

So now I changed the .zip extension on the downladed file to .vip and the install via VIPM works as it should!
