I created a software to communicate with a CLP with Serial RS232, and it works perfectly fine on my computer. I created a .exe version of it to run on another computer but it just wont communicate.
I already checked baud rate and everything. On my computer it works perfectly fine. I guess there is something missing on the other computer, some Visa or Runtime, I already installed Visa serial 3.8, run time engine and some other things, but I just does not work.
Does anyone have had the same problem and solved it somehow? Maybe I'm building it wrong, but I looked for tutorials and it seems right.
I use LabVIEW 2011 and want my software to run in Windows 7.

Your build is immaterial. An exe does not include hardware drivers and this has been discussed numerois times. Did you create an installer? There, you have the options to include LabVIEW runtime and NI-VISA runtime. A VISA serial 3.8 makes no sense unless you really are talking about NI-Serial and are actually using an NI USB-RS232 converter. The latest version of VISA is 5.2.

Not VISA 3.8, sorry, i meant serial 3.8 (that you already told made no sense to install).
I'm not using a NI converter, i'm using the driver from the vendor properly ( i tested it on simple term gold and it works fine on the other computer and on mine).
