Issue Details

I get the following error when starting my stand-alone application:

LabVIEW: Resource not found. lvanlys.dll


  1. Make sure that you have the correct LabVIEW Run-Time Engine installed. You will need the same bitness and version as your developing system. Check which version you have installed on your computer.
    1. If you are using an installer, verify the correct Run-Time Engine version is selected in the Additional Installer section of your Installer Properties.
  2. Ensure, you have installed full version of LabVIEW Run-Time Engine, not the Web Browser Plug-in (formerly known as Minimum LabVIEW Run-Time Engine). 
  3. If the correct Run-Time Engine is already installed, force the reinstallation of it.
