How do I automate a Python installation with my LabVIEW application? 

Python can be installed automatically with a LabVIEW application using an installer. The Python installer's executable can be run within the LabVIEW installer after execution. You can follow the guide to have a LabVIEW built installer run an executable after installation.  


Additional Information
Support for Python sessions was added in LabVIEW 2018. If you do not have LabVIEW 2018, Perl and Python Scripts can be called from LabVIEW using the System Exec VI.
