Issue Details

I want to build an MSI installer for my TestStand application and am using the TestStand Deployment Utility to select the files I want to add into my installer.

When I select to include Install TestStand RunTime I receive a message pop-up "Select Source": 
Some installers you selected for this build are not available on this computer. The preselected media below contain the required installers. If you have the preselected media, click OK. If not, deselect the media you do not have and select media you do have. When the selected media contain all the required installers, click OK. During the build you will be prompted for required media.


You are receiving this message is because the TestStand RunTime installer is not on your computer.
To solve this, you need to connect the installation source (USB, DVD or directory) and choose the installation media from which you installed the products selected.
If you do not have the media source available, you will need to reinstall TestStand in order to include the TestStand RunTime source. If you are using TestStand 2019 or above, this can be installed through NI Package Manager.
