Issue Details

I am trying to upgrade my software. I run through the normal procedure that I always do to upgrade software and when I get to the end I receive the following message:

Installation Summary: No software will be installed or removed

How can I fix this error?


This message will appear when the software is already installed on the computer, and you shouldn't need to install it again. You can Determine the Version of the NI Software Installed on My Computer to see if it is installed already.

Additional Information

You can also use NI License Manager (NILM) to view licensed software installed on your system, but it does not include some things like drivers.

If you try reinstall an NI software or driver and get interrupted by this window, you can instead perform a force reinstall.
