Issue Details

When I try to build my installer, I get a pop up that says Some installers you selected for this installer are not available on this computer.  The specific installer it is missing is the NI mx LabVIEW Control Installer. How do I fix this issue so I can build my installer?

Solution

The NI mx LabVIEW Control Installer is part of the NI-DAQmx driver. The installer cannot be found under a defined path, which is the reason for this error. To solve the problem please do the following steps:
  1. Please try to uninstall your DAQmx installation, then install using the offline installer, instead of the online installer. You can get the installer here: NI-DAQmx Download. The offline installer is available under the download button, as shown in this screenshot.
  1. If this doesn't work, please go to C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\MDF\ProductCache and move all entries related to NI-DAQmx in another self-created folder (backup)
  2. Go also to C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\NI Package Manager\packages and do the same
  3. Please open NI Package Manager and repair the NI-DAQmx installation
  4. Start the build process again. The problem should be solved
