Error when building a deployment project in VB 2013 for a project that references NationalInstruments.DAQmx 2012 and NationalInstruments.Common 2012

Hi,

When I am trying to build a deploy project using InstallShield Limited Addition, I get the following error:

Error 2 -4072: Error retrieving dependency Microsoft_VC90_CRT_x86.0138F525_6C8A_333F_A105_14AE030B9A54:0 of C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Merge Modules\MStudioDAQmx.2008.msm ISEXP : error : -4072: Error retrieving dependency Microsoft_VC90_CRT_x86.0138F525_6C8A_333F_A105_14AE030B9A54:0 of C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Merge Modules\MStudioDAQmx.2008.msm

I have DAQmx 14.1 installed and I included the .NET support for .NET 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5 when I installed. The MSTudioDAQmx.2008.msn is present in the location indicated in the message. The VB project is referencing the 2012 version of the DAQmx and Common libraries. Anyone know why I am getting this and how to fix it?

 

I ran the resulting install file on the computer I am developing on and the installed application rins fine. But I tried installing on another computer and when I try to run the application, nothing happens, like it is crashing at startup.

Hi dfunk67, 

 

I believe this may be a related forum post: http://forums.ni.com/t5/Measurement-Studio-for-NET/Error-about-retrieving-dependency-MStudioCommon-2...

 

This seems to be a common issue, as InstallShield is not officially supported with our products. I would try using an alternative to InstallShield, like WIX, as mentioned in the forum post.

 

Try this, and let us know if you are still experiencing problems. Thanks for contacting NI!
