The following steps cause a crash every time on my WinXP box:
1) Create a new, blank VI.
2) Drag any non-Express subVI (e.g., Trim Whitespace from the
Additional String Functions palette) onto your block diagram.
3) Double-click on the subVI and change some of the values on its
front panel (e.g., choose a different Location option on the Trim
4) Shift-drag the icon from the subVI's front panel to the subVI's
icon on your block diagram. This is supposed to cause LabVIEW to drop
constants onto your VI's diagram.
5) LabVIEW crashes with an access violation at address 0xC0000005.
This fails with every VI I have tried, including both NI's and my own.
I have never seen Shift-drag succeed in 7.1, and I have never seen it
fail in any older version.
