Does the DAQmx drivers include LVRun-Time Engine?

Does the DAQmx drivers include LVRun-Time Engine?

1. I first installed LVRun-Time Engine 7.1.1 on a new PC.
2. Then i ran the installer once again and selected remove to uninstall the program.
3. Next I installed DAQmx drivers 8.0.1
4. After this I tried to run my compiled labview.exe and it works fine(!)

When I look in control panel - add/remove programs and select National Instruments software and press change, I can see that NI LabVIEW Run-Time Engine 7.1.1 is installed.

Now why would version 7.1.1 be included in DAQmx 8.0.1?

Question1: Was perhaps the LVRTE install refreshed by the DAQmx install?

Question2: Is it not possible to completely remove installed software with the regular uninstall? I am trying to verify the install procedure as it will be on a fresh PC.

The run-time engine is included with DAQmx. If you look at the distribution, there is a Products folder that has it. My guess is that it's included for something like VI Logger or even the test panels in MAX.
