In order to build a new installer that contains a particular product, files from the original installer media of the selected product is required. For example, if you choose to include NI-DAQmx with your installer, the Application Builder could prompt you for the Device Driver CD that contains NI-DAQmx. Preventing this notification will depend on the settings you select when building the installer.Building the installer with LabVIEWIn LabVIEW 2010 or newer, you can prevent this dialogue by selecting the following option of the Additional Installers window in the Installer Build Specifications. For more information about what this check box will do, see LabVIEW 2018 Help: Additional Installers Page (Installer Properties Dialogue Box) .
Selecting the Copy all future installers to this computer when you run them checkbox will cause all future installers run on the system to automatically copy their products into the local cache during the install. This will prevent you from ever seeing a prompt for the location of those installers from within the Installer Builder utility.
In order to avoid the notifications in a version of LabVIEW 8.6 or older, you'll need to manually copy the entire contents of a source installer to your hard drive. In the case of NI-DAQmx, that means copying the entire contents of the Device Driver CDs to your hard drive. Then next time you build your installer, change the Installer Source Location in the Advanced Installers dialog box to the location where you copied the contents of the Device Driver CD.
