Issue Details

I am making a TestStand Deployment where I select the drivers and additional software I want to install. However when I deploy it, that software is not included.

Solution

This can happen if your product cache is empty. The deployment tool uses cached installers from your C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\MDF\ProductCache folder to build a deployment. If these files are missing, it will still package, but not deploy with the software.

You can repopulate the cache with your missing software by re-installing that software on the machine which is creating the deployment.
