Issue Details

After deploying and launching a LabVIEW-built executable it prompts me to find the nisyscfg.dll which does not appear to have been installed on the target computer using the LabVIEW custom installer.


This error can happen if the NI System Configuration Runtime is a dependency of the LabVIEW application and is not getting correctly deployed with the installer. Go through the following steps to add this software component to the LabVIEW custom installer:

1. Open LabVIEW and right-click on the custom installer under Build Specifications and select Properties.
2. Go to the Additional Installers category and deselect the Automatically select recommended installers checkbox.
3. In the National Instruments Installers to Include panel scroll down until you find the NI System Configuration Runtime and check this item to be included in the installer as shown below:
Additional Installers window

4. Rebuild the installer and run it on the target pc.
