Failing "check for update": Server not reachable (2013-07-24)

Q: During program start-up, the check for update window" claims that the server is not reachable. However, the internet connection works.

Unfortunately, the runtime library of LabView 2012 has a bug. But there is an easy work-around:

  1. Open the folder: /Library/Frameworks/LabVIEW\ 12.0\ Runtime.framework/resource
  2. Check, if the folder ni_httpClient.framework is listed
  3. Rename the folder, e.g., to ni_httpClient.framework.bak

The update function should work now.

Note, that the installer of openBEB installs a private version, including this work-around. However, if you installed the official version, you must apply this work-around.

openBEB maintains a local repository fir data storage (data-sets and meta-data) called bundles. They are using the extension *.bundle. These folders are treated on the Mac OS X operating systems like files. However, these bundles are standard file-system folders and can be opened using the Finder program:

  1. Right-click the bundle icon
  2. Select "Show Package contents"
  3. A finder window with the bundle contents is shown.
