VIPM 2020: problem with simple VIP install

Recommended Posts

I am trying to open a .vip file using VIPM 2020, but VIPM says "This package is not compatible with your operating system or any LabVIEW version installed on your computer".
I have LabVIEW 2018 installed, but I cannot select it: the pull down menu shows both System and LabVIEW 2018, but both are grayed out.
I tried rebuilding the .vip using VIPM 2020, but rebuilding did not make a change.
VIPM 2020 is able to detect the previous version of this .vip file which is already installed on my computer: seems that I can uninstall, but cannot install new packages.
I am using the free version of VIPM.

It seems that the difference is that the error shows when the package is double-clicked on a network drive and it opens normally when double-clicked on a local drive.

Sometimes there are weird permissions issues in Windows with files on a network drive. I've noticed odd behaviors occasionally, too.

I'm glad it's working for you now, and thanks for reporting these issues.
