First, the DSC Run-Time System is distributed via physical media, or is available for download online
and cannot be built into a LabVIEW installer. The LabVIEW DSC Run-Time in the additional installer window
of the installer builder is not the Run-Time System, but rather enhanced DSC Run-Time Support that allows dynamic creation project items etc.
The DSC Run-Time System version that you use must exactly match the DSC Module version which was used to develop the application. Like the LabVIEW RTE, the DSC RTS is not backwards compatible and even minor version changes of the module will require a different version of the Run-Time System.
For example, if you have developed your application using the 2011 DSC Module, you must then use the 2011 DSC RTS. Using the 2011 SP1 version of the Run-Time System with the 2011 Module will not work. Consult the Readme file in the DSC runtime system installation folder for further compatibility information regarding upgrading and installing.
To find out which version of the DSC Run-Time System you are using, complete the following steps:
- Open NI License Manager.
- In the navigation pane, expand LabVIEW x.x.
- Expand Modules within LabVIEW x.x.
- Select Datalogging and Supervisory Control Module.
Figure 1: DSC in License Manager.
- On the information pane, you will be able to read the Software Version.
