The files in the Installers
folder do not affect the usage of NI software. It is possible to delete these files without affecting your ability to use the software, but this should only be done if absolutely necessary.
It is important to note that these file are required for reinstalling software and building LabVIEW installers for applications. If software patches need to be included within the LabVIEW installer packages, this is the location that will be referenced.

1. Open NI Update Service.
2. Navigate to File >> Preferences
