I am preparing to deploy an updated version of a utility used to read data files generated by several LV driven test systems. This will be deployed to some users that already had installed a previous (first) version and some users that have never installed it. The previous installers will have the LV runtime already installed but the others won't.
Is there a way to have the install package check to see if the runtime is installed so it doesn't waste time installing it again? (Vers 2011)
Likewise, is there a way to check the version of the runtime (main version and patched versions) to know whether to update it?
Trying to make this a semi-professional install package.
It should already do this, assuming you need the same version of the RTE.
The LabVIEW installer is already smart enough to check that for you. If you make an installer, that includes the RTE, and you run said installer on a computer that already has the RTE then the installer simply skips it.
Guess I should have checked it out before posting. Trying to multitask, usually not a good idea.
