I am building a standalone application in LV 8.5
When I install and run the appllication on the target machine it keeps looking for nilvaiu.dll.
What is this dll and why is it not automatically included in the build if it is needed to run?
I have created an installer that includes the LV8.5 runtime and this is still not included?

I am using an NI-USB-6009 DAQ. I should have known this was going to be a problem.
As using any NI hardware requires a tangled web of drivers and updates to be installed to make even the simplest program run.
So this morning I have downloaded and am in the preocess of installing 1.5 GIGABYTES of various NI drivers in an attempt to get my 327K application to run.
As for building aditional installers. I tried building an installer for NI-DAQ 8.6 but LV8.5 is aksing for LV 8.2.1 disks to build it?
LabVIEW cannot locate the source installer for a component necessary to build this installer.
Distribution name: NI LabVIEW 8.2.1
Please locate the source installer for NI LabVIEW 8.2.1 and build your installer again.
Now I don't know why 8.5 needs 8.2.1 files when as far as I know 8.2.1 was never on this machine. If we do have 8.2.1 in the company the disks are locked up in some corperate I.S. department vault and it will take a director or VP level approval to get my hands on them.
Sorry for the rant here but this is such a trivial little program and the hoops I have to jump through to make it run on the target machine keep getting higher and about to be lit on fire.

Not sure why it would be asking for 8.2.1 files unless you installed an older version of DAQmx instead of the one that came with 8.5. As far as the large download, when you create the installer, you have the option of installing various types of DAQmx installations. They range from the full version with MAX, etc. to a minimal version without MAX.

I downloaded and installed DAQmx on to the target computer this seems to be what was missing...
The LV app is a simple analog input and output program. (this is still just proof of concept)
The app runs with out errors but there is no analog output when controls are changed and the indacators do not display the analog input voltage.
I do not even know how to troubleshoot this since I can move the DAQ back to the develpoment computer and it runs fine.Message Edited by RTSLVU on 11-29-2007 02:56 PMMessage Edited by RTSLVU on 11-29-2007 02:57 PMMessage Edited by RTSLVU on 11-29-2007 03:00 PM

I have two scales and a DAQ Assistant in the project explorer on the development computer.
I don't see either of them in MAX.
Shouldn't the scales and DAQ assistant automatically be included in the build?
