Proper steps to install Labview, VISA, Basic IVI Drivers, etc

Highlighted
Hi,

I've been trying to get my VI using Labview, and IVI drivers to work on a
second computer
(A laptop with a USB-GPIB).

I've been unable to get the IVI to setup- IVI doesn't appear in MAX, as it
does on my other computer. I installed the Basic IVI Drivers, and I
expected that to do what I needed.
MAX 2.2 was installed on the second computer, under software I have
CVI Runtime Engine 6.0.4.105
IVI engine 1.83
Labview 6.0.1 eval
NI Spy 1.5
NI 488.2 1.0
NI PAL 1.5.5f0
NI VISA 2.6

I'm confused on what packages I need, and what the best order to install
them is.
What will I need for my development machine?
What will I need for machines that just run binary programs?

I realize that this will may vary quite
a bit between different software and
interfaces, etc. I was hoping that someone had a generalized set of steps
to install. Perhaps a flowchart or some general guidelines?
Are there any scripts that check a configuration, etc?

Chad,

If you have built your application, all you should need is the runtime engine for LabVIEW, GPIB support, and VISA (runtime???). I am not sure off hand if MAX installs with GPIB/VISA, but I suspect it does.

If you are still having trouble, go to ni.com/ask and see what pops up. If you can't find anything there, the page will direct you to an engineering support form. Submit that, and someone from NI will get back in touch with you to help.

Good luck

If you're using IVI class drivers there are some files you need to include on your deployment machine to make sure it all works. I would suggest contacting NI support to get the details.

It may be that the evaluation version of LabVIEW doesn't support your VI.

Hello-

The NI-488 driver looks out of date. http://www.ni.com/support/gpib/versions.htm has the latest drivers, version 1.1 for the GPIB-USB-A.
