Solved!
Go to solution

I have LV2020 SP1 Professional.

 

I made an exe that only uses Serial Port.

 

When I try to build installer I get this missing request:

On my PC with LabVIEW 2021 32-bit installed, these Installers can be found in C:\Program Data\National Instruments\MDF\ProductCache.  I think they are the VisualC2008 Redistributable files.

I know, in fact the NI VC2008 folder is missing from that ProductCache location.

 

I have VC2015 folder in productcache ("NI VC2015 Runtime [14.15.49152]"), but not the 2008

 

Probably some old installer leftover messed up the inventory. 

 

I dont have any dependency on VC2008 in my project so I dont understand why LV is asking for that.

 

Can you zip and attach your "NI VC2008 runtime" installer if you have it?

You usually don't know that. Some component that your installer wants to include depends for some strange reason on this package. It definitely can't be something from your 2020 installation itself since that is all build with at least VC2015 but it could be a little driver you installed somewhere after the installation of LabVIEW. Does your application use any old legacy drivers in any way?

I solved.

 

I found on a NI KB that NI Visual C++ runtimes are needed for the Labview runtimes themselves.

Also there are 3 VC runtimes in total (2008, 2010 and 2015)

 

So I went into NI package manager, I selected all my labview runtimes (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020), and clicked "Repair".

 

Now I have all the runtimes installers in my local cache folder.

Before the repair, I had only VC2015.

 

Let's go
