Issue Details

I upgraded LabVIEW and installed the 2016 Full Development System. Now when I launch LabVIEW, a prompt appears requesting to install and configure the LabVIEW Runtime Engine 8.5.1 from a disk. I do not have an installation disk, or LabVIEW Runtime Engine 8.5.1 is already installed on my computer.

Solution

  • Uninstall LabVIEW Runtime Engine 8.5.1 using Microsoft Fix It Utility
  • Restart Computer
  • If LabVIEW prompts┬áto install other 8.X.X LabVIEW Runtime Engines, remove those from your computer as well by the same process
