This document contains the LabVIEW 8.2.1 Run-Time Engine. This Run-Time Engine must be installed on any Windows system where you plan to run executables that you build with the LabVIEW Application Builder. Version 8.2.1 of the Run-Time Engine may be used only to run executables that were built with LabVIEW 8.2 or LabVIEW 8.2.1.

Additionally, the Run-Time Engine allows your browser to display VIs that are embedded in Web pages.

If you were attempting to view a VI through a browser and you were directed to this site by your Web browser, the VI will display correctly after you install either Run-Time Engine.

There are two downloads that are available. You only need to install one of them.

  • LabVIEW 8.2.1 Run-Time Engine (Standard) gives full support for executables. This version will support all executables built with LabVIEW as well as allow viewing of Remote Front Panels in web browsers. It includes support for DataSocket, Variable Engine and NI-USI. This version can be deployed using an installer created with Application Builder. Download LabVIEW821RuntimeEngine.exe to install this version.
  • LabVIEW 8.2.1 Run-Time Engine (Web Browser Only) is a smaller download intended for viewing Remote Front Panels in web pages. It does not contain the full run-time engine, but will allow some executables to run. This version can not be deployed. Download LVRunTimeEng.exe to install this version.
