LabVIEW Install Missing File Error

Updated Jul 11, 2018

Reported In


  • LabVIEW
  • LabVIEW Application Builder Module

Issue Details

When installing LabVIEW the installation fails because it says it is missing files. How can I fix this?


  • Try installing from the physical media (USB, CD, Etc) if using the web installer. 
  • If you are using physical media, try downloading and installing from the web installer with firewalls and antivirus turned off. This will make sure no important files are stripped out by those programs. 
  • If you are trying to install a LabVIEW installer that you built using Application Builder, try rebuilding the installer. 

Additional Information

Verify you can install with the same files on a different computer. If you can, then there could be an issue with the computer itself.
