Deploying Applications using Network Variables

You must deploy support software to any computer that will host a network variable. Network variables that you configure with the NI Distributed System Manager cannot be automatically deployed; you can deploy only the System Manager. If the variable will be implicitly created by a client application, then it is sufficient to deploy only the NI Variable Engine component. You can select both the System Manager and Variable Engine components from the Drivers & ComponentsDrivers & Components tab of the Edit InstallerEdit Installer dialog box.

If your application only accesses network variables on other computers, you do not need to include additional components in your distribution. The Network Variable Support subcomponent of the LabWindows/CVI Runtime is automatically selected for you if your application uses the Network Variable Library.
