I am trying to create a new process from NI Distributed System Manager, but I kept receiving the error:

To try to solve the error above, please try the following:
  1. Make sure you have installed the correct version of the RIO drivers and LabVIEW.
  2. Make sure the NI Variable Engine service is running,
  3. If you're trying to deploy an executable, make sure you're including the NI Variable Engine in your installer.
