NI VC2005MSMs is required for the installation of NI Software such as NI-DAQmx, NI-FGEN, NI-SCOPE, and LabVIEW. Windows Update often locks this directory when it is running.
If the installation still fails after Windows Update has completed, install VC2005MSMs_X86 before running the installation wizard again. Before attempting the steps below, restart your computer as it is possible some running process is preventing a successful install.
To install VC2005MSMs_X86 on its own, do the following:
VC2005MSMs_x86.msi in the VC2005MSMs subfolder of your installation media (
NI-DAQmx4.6.1/Products/VC2005MSMs/VC2005MSMs/VC2005MSMS_X86.msi for example)
- Double-click on the applicable .msi After VC2005MSMs_x86 has finished installing, restart your computer. After rebooting, the installation wizard will complete without error.
