Issue Details

I tried to install NI VeriStand Engine on my PXI controller running PharLap ETS and I got the following error message:

Cannot continue because of the following unresolved dependencies:
NI VeriStand Engine 2018.1.0 requires Multifunction DAQ 18.6.0
NI VeriStand Engine 2018.1.0 requires Analog Output Series 18.6.0


NI VeriStand requires to also install the NI-DAQmx and NI-VISA drivers. The ReadMe file of each version of NI VeriStand specifies the required driver versions.

Additional Information

Starting from NI VeriStand 19.0, this software is installed using the NI Package Manager, which automatically selects the required versions of NI-DAQmx and NI-VISA.
