Issue Details

I have installed LabVIEW 2016 Development System on a computer. I noticed that when I run an NI installer containing LabVIEW 2016 over my previous installation, I receive the following message:


What does this message mean? What can I do to resolve it?


There is a known issue with LabVIEW 2016 that causes this message to appear erroneously due to a registry setting. The message will not affect installation behavior and can be disregarded. The behavior only applies to the Development System (not the Runtime Engine) on Windows machines. This issue has been tracked by CAR 598630 and was fixed with the LabVIEW 2016 Installation Patch.
