Impossible to uninstall LabVIEW Run - time Engine 2013

I have a PC that had both the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine installed 2013 and 2013 LabVIEW development environment.  I uninstalled the 2013 LabVIEW development environment, and now the executable files will not work.  They say that the Run-Time of 2013 is not installed.  However, execution 2013 is listed in MAX.  It does not appear in the list of available software to uninstall, so I can't uninstall and reinstall either.  When I try to run the installer from the runtime of 2013, it is said that the runtime is already installed.  It seems that I am stuck with a corrupted installation of Run-Time?  Is there anyway to remove completely the execution so I can reinstall it properly?

Thank you


I thought about it.  I managed to uninstall the runtime engine by following the instructions here:

  • LabVIEW: error building Installer 2011SP1: LabVIEW Run-Time Engine 2013 missing 3 dependencies?

    I'm having a problem of construction of an installer in 2011SP1 of LabVIEW.

    It has been a while since I tried to build an installer but it used to work properly and building executables still works fine.

    Now when I try to compile the installer, I get "generation failed."

    The possible reasons: error generating preview for my 3.1.7 Application.

    The really strange thing is that I'm using LabVIEW 2011SP1, I don't even have installed LabVIEW 2013, not even the runtime.

    Where is the problem? Why is he still complain about LabVIEW 2013? Anyone seen this before?


    This behavior makes me assume that you updated certain components from the past. There are drivers of OR who use LV components (e.g., AFAIK the DAQmx of Test panels).

    Update you things? If Yes, why don't you LV 2013 RTE installed as it would be necessary for full functionality of the driver?

  • Can I run two separate versions of the LabVIEW Run - Time Engine on a PC?

    Hello, I am curious to know if anyone knew if it is possible to install and use the two separate versions of the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine on a PC?  I have currently 2009 runtime engine installed on a machine, and I wanted to install the runtime for 2011 as well. I know that you can run two separate versions of the LabVIEW program on the same machine, but what about the Run-Time Engine?

    Thank you!

    No problem at all. I currently have the engines of execution for 8.2, 8.6, 2009, 2010 and 2011 on my computer. Multiples are no problem at all. Go ahead and load.


  • Unable to locate labview run time engine

    Hi all

    I have a problem while trying to run a simple labview software on a Tablet PC.

    My development machine is under win 7 64 bit with labview 2010 sp1 10.0.1

    My computer is a win 7 32 bit based tablet.

    I installed labview runtime engine TEN 2011 standard 32-bit sp1 but I get the following text: «unable to locate labview run-time engine...» "

    I tried to install sp1 64-bit of the 2011 standard RTE because one of the items suggested, but windows is not allowing to install 64-bit applications...

    Should which version of the Runtime I install!

    You did not say, but I'm assuming that you are using LabVIEW 2010 sp1 32 bit to develop and build the application.

    You can include the 2010 sp1 Runtime when you build the Setup program, or you can download it (here) and install it separately.

    (The runtime version must match the development system, so time to run from 2011 will not work. Even the 2010 (non - SP1) could cause problems)

    Can you tell me what position suggested to install an operating time of the wrong version of 64-bit. That makes no sense at all! Please provide a link.

    (You can only install the runtime on a 64 bit OS, 64-bit, and he will agree only if the application has been developed in 64-bit LabVIEW to the same version.)

    I tried to reinstall and reregistrate program windows installation, I tried to upgrade the installer from windows to version 4.5

    I have no problem installing other programs, for example, can I install runtime labview 7.1.1.

    So my question is:

    How do to solve this problem, how can I make a Labview Run-Time Engine 2009 installation on this computer which gives me the error described at the beginning?

    Best regards


    Now I have solved my problem.

    The solution was to raise and to build my code in Labview 2010.

    But the question of the installation contains yet to install LabView Run-Time Engine 2009.

    I don't think it's associated Windows Installer, because I can install everything on my computer in addition to LabView Run-Time Engine 2009.

    I can even install LabView Run - Time Engine 7.1.1 and LabView Run-Time Engine 2010.

    So, my solution was to jump using LabView 2009 and install LabView 2010.

    Best regards


  • VI LabVIEW Run-Time Engine adapter server configuration

    I want to connect to use the desktop execution trace toolkit to debug LabVIEW code modules using the adapter runtime TestStand.  How can I configure Server VI using LabVIEW VI in the LabVIEW Run-Time for TestStand engine adapter?

  • Error occurred during deployment of TS and the LabVIEW run-time engine only

    Hi all
    I'm new to Teststand deployment.
    Now, I want to deploy a program to clean install with SP1 2012 Teststand engine, LabVIEW 2012 SP1 Runtime, VISA 5.2 DURATION.
    My file in the sequence is empty. (In fact with a label only)
    But I got "Internal error code - 12 making an installer... ", and" MSI error code: 110 ".
    Attachment is the newspaper.
    Any Suggestion? Thank you.

    Thanks to KateB.

    Now I find out why an error occurred.

    I installed LabVIEW 2012 first, then crushed with LV 2012 SP1 but no uninstall.

    I think it makes Teststand to be comfused or maybe something conflict.

    Now I install LV 2012 or LV 2012 SP1 only. It works very well.

  • Improved LabVIEW 8 to 2013 and VI asked now to find the installation package for Run-Time Engine 7.0

    I recently installed LabVIEW 2013 on a computer (running Windows XP 32-bit).  The machine has also of LabVIEW 8 is installed, which is what I used before the upgrade.  I opened a VI has been created in LV8 and then saved it and all its subVIs in LV2013.  Now when I open the VI in LV2013 and try to run it, a window opens asking me to find the installation package 'lvruntimeeng.msi' for LabVIEW Run-Time Engine 7.0.  If I cancel this dialog box, and the subsequent message, indicating that the installion files were not, the VI appears (at least of the initial inspection) to function normally.

    I have closed LabVIEW, downloaded Run-Time Engine 7.0 on the site of NOR and tried to install it, but I received a message saying that it is already installed (as I had suspected).  How can I determine what part of the VI and/or its subVIs tries to make use of Run-Time Engine 7.0?  If not, how can I get LabVIEW to use instead the Run-Time Engine 2013 that was installed when I upgraded to LabVIEW 2013?

    You run your VI of a project?  If so, you can watch the dependencies and get an idea of what live "in charge", you might have.  There may be "something old" in your code in LabVIEW 8, which was replaced in 2013, but ' plane still around "-If you can identify it, you can probably replace it with its"more modern"equivalent

    If you do not have the VI in a project, you can simply open LabVIEW, create a blank project and add your first level VI.  If all of your relevant screws are in a single folder, add the entire folder.  Now look in the dependencies.


    Yes, I run the VI from within a project of LV.  After some more research in the knowledge base OR I could solve the problem by using the following procedure:

    1. use the measurement and Automation Explorer to uninstall Run-Time Engine 7.0

    2. restart the PC

    3. open the project, close the project by choosing "save all".

    4. restart the PC

    5 reinstall the Run-Time Engine 7.0 using a file downloaded from

    6. restart the PC

    7. open the project, close the project by choosing "save all".

    8. open the project and run the VI.  No more messages on LabVIEW, trying to find the Run-Time Engine 7.0.

  • VISA writing differs between TS and LV Run - Time Engine development agencies

    Hi all

    I made a request on LabVIEW to test the BERs (Bit error rate), and I used the Write VISA between two COM ports to Exchange data.

    Everything works great using just of LabVIEW.

    Later, I used TestStand to call my application (VI). Adapters of LabVIEW TestStand have been set by default on the development system , and everything works OK!

    Finally, I had to disable the development system and to define the types of adapters LabVIEW of TestStand for LabVIEW Run-Time Engine and I noticed that the speed of the exchange of data between two COM ports significantly decreased.

    The only difference was the speed... because all data (changed slowly in this case) happened correctly on the other COM port too.

    The symptom was the same that decrease baud rate... but baud rate and all other configurations remained the same. The only difference was the change between the development system for the runtime to notice this reduced speed between the data exchanged using VISA Write.

    All the solutions for this?

    Thanks in advance


    Hi all!

    I'm sorry, I forgot to reply to this thread...

    Solution was change the way VISA WRITE of "asynchronous" to "synchronous" to book a thread just to WRITE visa.

    The problem here was something like this (?): TestStand used all available threads and when we wanted to WRITE of VISA, the thread has been busy and VISA would wait until the wire emerges. After changing to syncrhonous, there was a thread dedicated to this process (?).

    Now, everything works the same using LabVIEW Run-Time Engine or system deployment.

    Thanks for the help Chris and Norbert :-)


  • License OR VISION Run-Time Engine


    I send you this question because despite the number of doc that I could find in relation to my question, I have not had a clear answer to my pb:

    I have an application that has been developed with LV 8.2.1 using NI IMAQ 3.7 from functions. (Very briefly the program acquires images from a camera, performs simple operations on images and saves the results of these operations, so other images).

    I would like to know what are the licenses I need to purchase pour installer of the compiled version of my prog on client pc (which does not have LV). (I know I'll have to buy for each client PC licensed IMAQ 3.7 but regarding the treatment of these images can I just no VISION Run - Time Engine 8.2.1 which seems to me is free in the same way that NEITHER LABVIEW Run-Time Engine 8.2.1)

    Pour your response thanks in advance that I help him nothing I hope to see more clearly between the IMAQ vision, vision performance, VISA Run-time...

    Hello fabrice91,

    The Runtime of NOR-VISION is available to download for free, however during the installation you have to activate it. When you create an executable LabVIEW AAFC is not automatically run time engine, this is why you need to create an installer that will contain the TENS of LabVIEW and NI of VISION. If you run the executable on the development computer it is normal that your application turns car you have all the necessary Runtime on this post. However if you try to run your application on a machine where there is no software OR your executable will not have to work and that's your Installer. Pour the know National Instruments programs installed on a PC you have several opportunities either through Measurement & Automation Explorer either start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > software from National Instruments.

  • LabVIEW 2011 Run time engine installation issue

    I try to install Labview 2011 Run time engine as downloaded here:

    on my laptop Windows 7 Pro. I have the hard drive shared in the C and D drive with plenty of space on each.

    Initially the office IT guy tried to do the installation as an administrator and for some reason any installed at "D:\Program NIUninstaller Instruments\" for some reason any. He went through the installation without error, but after restarting, it seems that some of the components are installed. I never installed anything else OR on this computer, but after installation I see NI License Manager and Datasocket under National Instruments in the start menu. If I re - run the installer it seems to think that everything is installed and there is something to remove, but it is obviously not.

    Subsequently the computer gave me administrative privileges on my account so I have been playing with various combinations of uninstall and reinstall myself but with the same result each time.

    Any ideas would be very appreciated.
