We are getting into trouble with all these run-time engine updates! Every time a new release or service pack come out we have to create a new installer with the new run-time engine and send it out onto all our customer's machines. It is not convenient to develop in 20 different versions of Labview and we like to keep our executables and updates recent.
Our instruments run on XPe with very little extra room for an additional RTE every 6 months. Asking the customer to uninstall old RTEs is painful as they are not supposed to go that deep inot our XPe build.
I would like to see a modularized run-time engine where we don't need to update the whole thing every release. I know with .NET updates are only necessary in 3-5 year increments. That would be much more acceptable IMHO
