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.


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.
