Do I Need to Install the Full VISA Driver from National Instruments?

Updated Sep 11, 2018

Issue Details

I am trying to deploy an application using VISA to my users. Do I need every user to install the full VISA driver from National Instruments?


If the application being deployed is in an executable format, you would only need to install the VISA Run-Time Engine for the application to run correctly. This installer is only a fraction of the size of the full VISA driver set.

If the application is being run by LabVIEW as a .vi, you will need the full VISA driver for that application to function since it is being used in the development environment.
