I downloaded the evaluation software - ""Cscope Evaluation v4639.zip"" today, and it installed with no problems. However, when I try to run it, I get a dialog box with no title and the text ""Executable version (7.1.1) doesn't match resource file (7.1). Check your configuration."". No actual application window appears. The dialog has an OK button, and when I click it, the application exits (disappears from Task Manager) with no other display.

Is this an error in the downloadable software, or is there something that I can do to clear the error?

Typical... I did search the forum but somehow missed this thread, which is for exactly the same issue. After following the instructions at National Instruments to repair the ""NI LabVIEW Run-Time Engine 7.1.1"", the problem was solved.

Sorry for the noise.

Thanks very much for that Rob. Just to be clear I include the NI descriptive text below.

To fix this problem, download the LV 7.1.1 Runtime and run it and select 'Repair'
This will fix the problem and will not affect other runtimes (eg LV8+).

The NI descriptive text for this problem is:

Executable Version (7.1.1) Doesn't Match Resource File (7.1)

Primary Software: LabVIEW Run-Time Engine
Primary Software Version: 7.1.1
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: N/A

When trying to run a VI that was built into an executable, I get the following error: ""Executable Version (7.1.1) Doesn't Match
Resource File (7.1) Check Your Configuration"". I have recently updated LabVIEW from 7.1 to version 7.1.1. The VI that the
executable was built from works fine on this machine but the stand-alone executable does not.
This error is also occurring when I try to open Measurement and Automation Explorer or the Vision Assistant.

This problem occurs due to a corrupted or incomplete LabVIEW 7.1.1 Run-Time Engine installation. Run-time engine corruptions or
incomplete installations can happen for a variety of reasons, but one more common way your run-time engine can get in this state
in LabVIEW 7.1 was due to a very specific software bug.

The LabVIEW 7.1 and 7.1.1 Run-Time Engine each have two types of installers. One type is the .msi based standard installer that
can be downloaded from ni.com and is installed as a separate application. Another variety of the run-time engine is a merge module
based installer that is distributed with applications created with the LabVIEW Application Builder when you choose the option to
build an installer including the run-time engine. It is when you install this second type of run-time engine that you can encounter this
error. If you have the LabVIEW 7.1.1 run-time engine installed on your machine (either through having the LabVIEW 7.1.1
development environment installed, or through one of the two run-time engines described above), and you later run the LabVIEW
7.1 merge module run-time engine installer (as opposed to either of the 7.1.1 run-time installers or the .msi 7.1 installer) the
LabVIEW 7.1 Run-Time Engine merge module installer will corrupt your 7.1.1 run-time engine by replacing your 7.1.1 run-time
engine's resource file with a 7.1 version without replacing the 7.1.1 run-time engine dll. When this happens your run-time engine
has a mismatch in versions between the run-time engine dll and its resource file. Since the Run-Time Engine is needed to run
LabVIEW executables, this installation will have to be repaired. To repair the LabVIEW 7.1.1 Run-Time Engine, complete the
following steps:

Go to Add or Remove Programs
Select National Instruments Software and click Change
In the National Instruments Software dialog window that appears select NI LabVIEW Run-Time Engine 7.1.1 and click Repair
Note: In Measurement & Automation Explorer the LabVIEW Run-time Engine 7.1.1 will not appear under the Software folder. To
verify that the software is installed check under National Instruments Software in Add or Remove Programs.
