I am installing Labview 8.6 on my laptop which is having Windows Vista Home premium edition.
When the installation begins an error occurs (after the acceptance of licence step in the installation procedure) with the title on the error window "Microsoft Visual C ++ Runtime Library " and displays the program set up path with these statements " This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information."
I am unable to install it on my laptop. Can anybody please help me.
Thank you Nitin, for your swift reply.
I am installing LabView 8.6 from an evaluation DVD. Using the same DVD i could install it on other computer which has Windows Vista Business edition. I dont find any reason for the interruption in installation. Please suggest some solution or an alternative to solve this problem.
You can solve this problem by going to Start » Run and typing Regsvr32 (system folder path)\msi.dll, where "system folder path" is the folder where the msi.dll file resides on your computer.
In Windows Vista, the system folder name is C:\Windows\System32. Press OK.
broadly the error could be because of two reasons:
1. Runtime Engine exe file is corrupt in the CD you are using to install LabVIEW.
Solution: Download LabVIEW Runtime Engine 8.6 from http://joule.ni.com/nidu/cds/view/p/id/1101/lang/en
2. There's some problem with the windows installation in your PC.
Solution: you know reinstall windows
But before trying to reinstall, make sure you installed the msi.dll using "Regsvr32 (system folder path)\msi.dll" . I'm sure you did.
