Unable to Install Updates to NI Software Using NI Update Service

Updated Mar 11, 2020

Issue Details

I recently received a notification that there is an update for my software but when I try to install the update NI update service says that the update cannot be applied.

How can I install the updates for my software?

Solution

If NI Update Service is unable to apply the updates or patches automatically you can download the patches from the software download page and install them manually. They will usually appear as follows.



Patches for older software don't require an active Service Program.
