Issue Details

I'm trying to run an application I built with LabVIEW NXG, but when I do I get Error 1003 Occurred: Cannot find or Load shared library nilvai_utf8.dll.   or  Error 1003 occurred: 
Cannot find or load shared library nivisalvapi.dll
.  Why is this?


This happens due to a missing dll on the target computer. First, you must check if all the drivers required by the application are installed on the target computer. If not, install them and try to relaunch your application.
If this is not enough, you can do the following:
  1. Search for the dll on the developer machine, normaly is on C:\Windows\System32
  2. Copy the dll.
  3. Paste the dll on the target computer in the same path.
