 I can't get LabVIEW 6.1 to install properly on a computer running XP.

I have installed LavVIEW 6.1 on a Dell machine running XP Pro twice,
and each time the install has croaked with the License Manager
software killing the machine.  The lmgrd.exe task is not communicating
properly with the nilm.exe task, which it continually spawns until all
the resources are consumed on the PC, rendering it useless.  I
understand that the lmgrd.exe task uses the TCP/IP layer protocols to
communicate with the nilm.exe task.  The only things installed on this
"fresh" machine besides XP are Office XP, Norton AV (turned off during
install), and Roxio Easy CD creator.

I figured out the problem.  Instead of having McAfee Firewall software
running, there was a version of firewall software that comes with
Windows XP that was running in the background.  I tried to disable it,
but apparently that's not enough.  You have to go into the Add/Remove
programs and permanently remove it (or just not use the license
manager).  But that fixed my problem and I finally had only one each
of the lmgrd.exe and nilm.exe processes running.  Someone should
change the knowledge base question regarding the multiple copies of
nilm running to include XP firewall client software.  Thanks for the

The answer to this question is not perfect; however the solution does
work.  Windows XP by default will execute the license manager within
the startup group. This is easily seen after the installation is
complete and the computer is rebooted for the current installation to
be taken into effect.  In some cases labview will require the license
manager to be present depending on the application; but if it isn't
then it does not need to be activated.  Therefore, de-install Labview
and re-install it; however, this time before allowing the software to
reboot the machine when it is completed, click on NO and go directly
to the Start->Settings->Control Panel->Administrative
Tools->Services->NILM License Manager; right-click and select
Properties.  Go to the Field->Startup Type and choose MANUAL.   At
this point reboot your computer for the completion of the

At a later date, if the license manager is required, then to allow a
TCP/IP connection would mean that you would need to disable Windows XP
Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) feature which is also enabled by
default when XP is installed.  To disable this, go to
Start->Settings->Control Panel->Network Connection and select the
network connection you have configured.  Right-click and select
Properties.  Go to the Advanced Tab and de-select the ICF feature.
Note that your computer will be susceptible to intruders at this
point, so take caution!
