Archived: NI-SCOPE Soft Front Panel Fails to Load After Installing 2012 Device Drivers DVD

I have installed the 2012 Device Drivers DVD onto my system.  When I try to open the NI-SCOPE Soft Front Panel (SFP), it does not finish loading.  It appears to begin loading, but then the SFP closes without any warnings or errors within a few seconds.  Why won't the SFP finish loading?

The NI-Scope SFP runs on the LabVIEW 8.6.1 Run-Time Engine.  The installer for the 8.6.1f4 Run-Time Engine, which was installed on the February 2012 release of the Device Drivers DVD, will not install nitaglv.dll in the {Program Files}\National Instruments\Shared\LabVIEW Run-Time\8.6\ folder in some situations.

More information about the source of this problem can be found in AE KB 5W4GHOMW: Error -1950678968 Appears Only in My Built Application. To correct the problem install the LabVIEW 8.6.1f5 Run-Time Engine or apply the critical update available in Update Service. The update will only appear on affected systems.
