Note: If the problem you are having is that your list of LabVIEW versions list is empty in VIPM, then look here.

Sometimes VIPM has trouble connecting to LabVIEW to perform installation of Add-ons. The following is a list of things you can try to fix the problem.
- LabVIEW machine access list - Make sure you have the following IP addresses configured in your VI Server setting in LabVIEW:
- asterix (*)
- Sometimes: <your IP address on the network>
- Sometimes: <your PC name>
- Exported VIs list
- LabVIEW VI Server Settings - Make sure you have the following VI Server settings in your LabVIEW Options. Note that the Port number will be different on your system. If you have multiple LabVIEW versions, then you should assign a different port number for each LabVIEW version. Normally you should not have to adjust your port numbers since VIPM will set these automatically
- VIPM port list configuration - If you have multiple LabVIEW versions, then you should assign a different port number for each LabVIEW version. Normally you should not have to adjust your port numbers since VIPM will set these automatically. However, in case of problems, you should make sure that VIPM has the correct port identified in the VIPM options window.
- Webserver connection
- Check LabVIEW connection to web server by trying to open "Example Finder" (Help >> Find Examples)
- If Example Finder does not open, repair LabVIEW and then try VIPM
- Configure the Windows Firewall:
- Click Start in windows. Type: "allow a program through windows firewall" then select it.
- Make sure LabVIEW 20xx and VIPM are added to this list and are allowed to communicate through the windows firewall.
- Launch VIPM with "Run As Administrator" Privileges:
- Right mouse click on VIPM shortcut and select "Run As Administrator" option
- If the option is not listed, try SHIFT+RightMouseClick
Thanks JKI this solved my issue.
thank you JKL this was very helpful and solved my issue.
Eres un dios... funcionó a la perfección =D
For me, the only thing that helped was adding the * to the list. I'm not all that comfortable with allowing EVERY IP to connect. Why should I need to add *?
This should be included in the HTML file that is included in VIPM. Adding '*' to the list resolved my connection issue, but this is not stated in Appendix B: How to manually configure your LabVIEW version to allow VIPM communication.
This does not solve the connection problems on many computers. Maybe something more in depth should be added as how to detect and solve this connection problem. Is there a log file I could get?
Muchas Gracias Por Su Ayuda Funciona Verdaderamente . Dios Le Bendiga..
I can't install teh toolkit even doing this. I have LabView 2013 Student Edition and I'm trying to install the arduino toolkit v188.8.131.52. I've already change the port and tried with different combinations of "localhost", "*", *127.0.0.1" and my IP. What else can I do?
