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?

Solution

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.
