  1. Hello everyone, I recently installed LabVIEW 2013 on my development machine to get rid of some issues in my current project. However the project is originally build in LabVIEW 2011, so I had to save all VIs for the new version (no issues ) I'm still able to build the application executable with no problems too! Now I want to provide an installer for the customer to upgrade the Runtime engine and some additional stuff that has been changed for LabVIEW 2013. And there lies my problem, as I'm currently unable to build an installer. The configuration dialog shows 'error generating preview' for any executable in the project: Naturally I tried to generate the preview in the executable, but there seems to be no issue: Creating new specifications did not solve the problem and even creating a whole new project file and including the startup VI to it + creating new specifications did not solve the problem... I made a new project with a single VI for testing if the application builder is not working in general, but thats not the case, as I was able to create an application + installer with no issues. So I'm quite sure there is something wrong in my project that causes this behaviour, but I've currently no clue what that could possibly be. I read somewhere (in the NI forums I guess) that there could be issues if you have files in your project that are build in an older version (as one of the dll files), so I upgraded it... with no success... Now does anybody had an issue like that in the past / currently and is there anything I could do or check to regain the ability to provide a proper installer? What could possibly cause the installer dialog to fail generate a preview where the application dialog is successfull? Any ideas are welcome
