Issue Details

I built a LabVIEW installer that installed an executable on my target computer with no errors but when I try to run the executable I get the following error "missing shared library file nilvaiu.dll." or error below:

Error missing nilvaiu.dll


The error indicate that the installer did not include the NI-DAQmx driver. When building the installer you must include NI-DAQmx under additional installers or you can download a compatible NI-DAQmx driver according to the following NI-DAQmx and LabVIEW Compatibility chart. If the error still exist after you included the NI-DAQmx in installer, try to run as administrator to open your LabVIEW project and build the installer, then run as administrator when execute the installer and the executable file.
