When installing software to your real-time target, the LabVIEW Real-Time Software Wizard should default to use the latest versions of software available on the host PC.
If you choose to re-install/update existing software on your RT controller, the install can fail if you are missing dependencies for the software components you are trying to re-install/update. To get past this, avoid re-installing/updating components separately. Instead use the re-install all option from the real time software wizard software selection screen.
NI MAX only allows you to install existing software onto the cRIO that you have on your computer. Therefore, software should be installed in the following order on the local host computer:
- First install LabVIEW
- Then install LabVIEW Real-Time (and LabVIEW FPGA Module if you are using it)
- Afterwards, install NI-CompactRIO or NI-RIO driver
- As last step, install software to your cRIO from NI MAX
