VIPM will either lockup or crash during the startup slash screen. Attached is a dump file that was generated. I have VIPM 2012.0.1 installed with LabVIEW 2012 (32-bit) and (64-bit) on Windows 8. I had the same issue when running on windows 7 so did a clean install of Windows 8 (as well as all the NI software).


One thing of interest that I am noticing.. If I remove LabVIEW 2012 (32-bit) VIPM will launch just fine. The program seems to be linked to the 32-bit install and runs just fine if I only have LabIVEW 64-bit installed. This is repeatable such that whenever LabVIEW 32-bit is installed VIPM will crash.


Any help would be appreciated.

I am unable to recreate the behavior on my 64 bit Windows 7 virtual machine. I have LabVIEW 2012 (32 and 64 bit) and installed VIPM 2012.0.1 (build 1818). It launches successfully. Here is the screenshot: http://screencast.com/t/gCODbPuHBA


VIPM launched successfully from no-admin account as well.


While I am still investigating, let me know if you find anything that I can try.

Hi Ashish,


This seems to only effect this one machine (I have other win8 machines with LV32+LV64+VIPM installed without problems). I installed TestStand and Switch Executive and now it will launch VIPM successfully. My only guess is that during the TestStand install that it must patch something fixing the problem.


Thanks for your help.

I'm getting the same problem. VIPM 2011 didn't work either.

Though I loaded it just now to try a dump, and it ran just fine...I'm going to install everything I might ever want in case it crashes again. :rolleyes:


EDIT: And just after I installed one package, it crashed again. Didn't get a dump of that, but I started it and it crashed, so I took a dump of that.

What is your OS and other PC parameters? Was VIPM ever working for you before?


Please provide some screenshots if possible.


I have an Alienware Aurora R4, with a quad-core Intel Core i7-3820 factory-overclocked to 4.2 GHz (I think.) I have 16 GB of RAM, and 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate. I have two 1 TB hard drives, combined using RAID to a 2 TB volume. VIPM has never worked on this computer, neither 2011 nor 2012. I don't know if anything before 2011 would work, though it might not even be compatible with LabVIEW 2012.

same here, problem found on multiple systems, but exact same model (dell latitude e5520 - CPU i5-2520M@2.50GHz)


it works on older PCs (core2duo, dual core), it works on VMs (vmware workstation 9).


same config on all PCs (I use SCCM for deployment method, so it's the exact same config)


thanks for the support once again!

Not sure if this will help, but I installed VPM with LV2011, and it crashed on startup and never ran. I just onstalled LabVIEW 2012, and gave it another shot and now it runs fine. MicroSoft Framework 4.0 got installed during the 2012 upgrade - so maybe trying installing that?
