It is generally advisable to upgrade software or drivers if a corruption is suspected. However, if for compatibility or other reasons, an upgrade is not feasible, you can force all of the files in an installation to reinstall by running the setup.exe file from the Command Prompt or Windows PowerShell and using the /reinstall switch. You will need your original installation disc or installation files to do this. If you are missing installation files, you can search for them on our website.IMPORTANT NOTE: The force-reinstall option is only available for software that was installed through individual product installers or suite installers without NI Package Manager. If your software was installed through NI Package Manager; you would get errors such as " /reinstall command is not found " in the Command Prompt or PowerShell or could get a Window stating that the /reinstall command is an Unknown option as shown below:
For software that was installed through NI Package Manager, the repair/reinstall process can be performed following the steps on this KB: Repair Software in NI Package Manager (NIPM). For further details on NI Package Manager options please visit Installing, Updating, Repairing, and Removing NI Software.
