2012 problems building an installer



LV2012 pro dev system

Windows 10


I am having issues building an installer when I include ni-daqmx 15 runtime with config support. 

It asks my for a daqmx 15 installer disk which I provide and it proceeds. Then it asks me for a daqmx 16 disk which I provide and then I get an error. I am not sure why it asks me for the daqmx 16 disk because I am not using this.

I am running MAX 16 with DAQMX 15.


I will attach a screen shot of the error it makes no sense as you can see.

Hmmmm, these errors often have very random causes Stewy but I would ask you whether you used the default option of letting LabVIEW choose which add-ons to include in the installer or whether you explicitly defined them in the installer options?


In my mind there's a potential conflict of using MAX16.0 with DAQmx 15.0  My suggestion would be to load DAQmx 16.0 on its own but there's no science to it.  Just a gut feeling based on experience of the application builder.


Good luck.

Labview only automatically picks the 2012 runtime engine. Everything else is manually picked.


Thanks Simon I will try and install daqmx 16 but I thought I read somewhere that 2012 in only compatable with versions up to daqmx 15. I am not sure how I got max 16 with daqmx 15. Are these versions always supposed to be the same?

Eeek, if the application builder has only picked up that the application needs the LV runtime but really it needs DAQmx etc. then it may be an indicaton of a problem further up the tree so to speak.  Have you checked that all the dependencies are OK?  It's possible that an application will compile and run on the Dev machine but with broken dependencies.


NI's compatibility matrix is here and you're absolutley right.  DAQmx 16 isn't compatible with LV2012 so the answer will be just to select DAQmx 15 as this will install MAX 15 also.
