Issue Details

Can I have two different versions of LabVIEW Run-Time Engine on the same systems without them interfering?


You can have multiple versions of the Run-Time Engines on a machine. 

However, keep in mind that if you have NI drivers (i.e. DAQmx API) you can't have more than one version of each driver installed at any point in time. This is important to keep in mind as different Real-Time Engines might not support the same versions of the driver (i.e. if the driver version is old and no longer supported in the new Real-Time Engine).
