Issue Details

I have this  LabVIEW program that uses the one of your DAQ devices and I want to create an executable for another computer to use. When I ran it on the other computer, the channels changed. What is the process for creating an installer downloading drivers and run-time engines?


You can create your executable and then bundle the NI-DAQmx driver that into a distributable installer for another computer. Doing this can allow for easier installation and prevent any errors when attempting to install each one separately. 

Using these steps can guide you through the process and give you more insight on this whole process.
