Is It Needed to Install Python When I Deploy Labview Application Using Python Session?

Updated Jul 10, 2020

Issue Details

I developed a LabVIEW application using python session. When deploying it to a new PC, do I need to install python?


Yes, you need to install Python on the PC you want to deploy the application. Along with only being compatible with Python 2.7 and 3.6, the Open Python Node looks for the interpreter in the default installation directory of the system. If Python is not installed on the deployed PC, you will get the error about missing Python interpreter.

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.
