Select Help»Investigate Internal Error to display this window. This menu item does not appear if you never have received an internal LabVIEW error.

Use this window to investigate internal LabVIEW errors, such as panel.cpp, line 2978, at any time. Use the Investigate Previous Internal Error or Warning window to investigate internal LabVIEW errors when you start LabVIEW after a LabVIEW error occurs.

This window includes the following components:

  • Log Files—Displays the error, date, and path to each log file on the computer.
  • Investigate—Sends the error information from the selected log file to the National Instruments website and displays the website in the default Web browser. The form that appears in the browser contains the error information so you can search for possible causes of the error. If you do not find any possible causes, you can submit the log file with a support request.
  • Delete—Removes the selected log file from the computer.
  • Browse—Displays a file dialog box so you can navigate to an internal LabVIEW error log file not located in the lvfailurelog subdirectory of the default data directory.
