LabWindows/CVI uses the standard Microsoft Windows Installer technology (MSI) to create a compressed database that includes everything that must be installed and tracked on the target machine. Refer to www.msdn.com for more information about this technology. LabWindows/CVI creates a single .msi file for all application files, registry keys, shortcuts, third-party merge modules, and so on. This .msi file installs the application on the target machine.
|Note LabWindows/CVI creates the .msi file under the Volume1\bin\dp folder in the installer output directory. Use this .msi database to do any necessary post-build processing with standard installer editing tools, such as the Microsoft Orca database editor.|
An installer will not downgrade an NI product. If you have one version of an NI product installed on the build computer and a higher version of that product installed on the target computer, the installer does not replace the higher version of the product with the version from the build computer.
A distribution is comprised of all the .msi files that contain the application and supporting NI products, as well as any additional licenses and support files. These files are connected through a single user interface and setup.exe file.
