Issue Details

  • I want to install the LabVIEW development environment, my application, drivers, and modules all from one installer. How can I build an installer that includes my LabVIEW-built installer and a 3rd party installer?
  • Can I run additional installers when building an installer within LabVIEW?


If the installer that you want to add to your LabVIEW-built installer is a 3rd party installer or if it does not show up on the Additional Installer list inside LabVIEW, there are a few recommended solutions:
  • If you only have a single non-NI installer to run, you can use the LabVIEW Application Builder option to Run an Executable After Installation , which will be able to run a non-NI installer after completing your LabVIEW-built installer.
  • If you have multiple installers and procedures that you have to do between installers, then you can create your own batch file to run that will execute your LabVIEW-built installer as well as any other installer and procedure you need.

Additional Information

For additional support adding NI drivers or Run-Time to your LabVIEW installer, please see Additional Installers in LabVIEW Application Builder .

If you are using multiple NI Installers use NI Batch Installer Builder  to create an installer that bundles together the NI Installers.
