<bakground>So i just had a silly thing happen to me, i compiled a program and deployed it to the target computer, just like i did yesterday. Then it started complaining about a missing LV 2017 Runtime ... How? Why?
I reinstalled, repaired and it didn't help, both program and RT, several times and it didn't help.
I tested another program which started just fine, so what's missing? Is it some sub-package that my custom RT-installer didn't include?
I called NI and the support technician couldn't see anything wrong either, so with him on the phone i went to the development computer to look at some installer settings he had dug up. That's when i noticed i was in LV2017 64 bit! The messages said nothing about that! </background>
Improve error messaging when missing RunTime. Include the bitness that's missing, now it only said "Missing LabVIEW RunTime 2017", if it had said "Missing LabVIEW RunTime 2017 (64 bit)" i would have reacted and understood directly, now it cost way too much time to admit. 😕
Also, isn't it time to scrap the 32 bit version and go only 64? 🙂
