This document contains the LabVIEW 8.6 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 8.6 of the Run-Time Engine may be used only to run executables that were built with LabVIEW 8.6.
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.
