Installation of a LabVIEW application breaks Network Streams of an already running application?

Issue Details

I have a running LabVIEW application with network streams and try to install another application during this one running. Even if the new application does not use network streams, at the end of the installation I get the following error message:
Error -314350 occurred at Create Network Stream Reader Endpoint

 

Solution

This behavior is expected. Please stop any running LabVIEW application before running a LabVIEW installer.

Additional Information

National Instruments products use different services as foundation, a summary of these can be found here . One of these services is NI-PSP, which is handling any ethernet connection for NI Products, and is also handling network streams. Many applications use NI-PSP and need it to be adapted when installing a new application.
