An issue was discovered where installing the LabVIEW 2012 f2 (Windows) patch over the LabVIEW 2012 f1 (Windows) patch may inadvertently remove files from the LabVIEW 2012 Run-Time Engine, causing LabVIEW built applications to error on launch. For example, the Example Finder will silently fail to launch, and the NI System Web Server will fail to launch with an error.
We have removed the LabVIEW 2012 f2 patch from distribution.
If you are affected by the above issue, please install the LabVIEW 2012 f3 patch to replace the missing files, and to resolve the issue. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The LabVIEW 2012 f2 Patch is available as a combination patch for the LabVIEW 2012 Development environment and the LabVIEW 2012 Run-Time Engine, or as a standalone release of the LabVIEW 2012 Run-Time Engine.
The patch fixes the six issues below. It also includes the fixes made in the LabVIEW 2012 f1 patch. It is strongly recommended for all LabVIEW 2012 installations, but is especially recommended for users of the LabVIEW FPGA module. It is available via Update Service, or from the Drivers and Updates links below.
Issues Fixed in LabVIEW 2012 f2
Certain applications built with Application Builder fail to launch.
