What is needed to run the SimView simulators?


The SimView simulators are developed in LabVIEW (Windows). You can run these simulators only if you have the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine 2017 - 32 bit - Windows ("LVRTE2017") installed. You can download and install this Run-time Engine from National Instruments' web site (it is necessary to register at NI before downloading). File name is LVRTE2017std.exe. File size: 367 MB.

If you have installed the LabVIEW development system, the LVRTE is included there. Installation of LVRTE2017 is then not necessary for running the SimView simulators.

During the installation of LVRTE2017 you are prompted to select in a list of six tools which tools to install. It is sufficient to select only "NI LabVIEW Runtime" which is the first (upper) tool in the list. So, you should deselect all the other tools in the list. (If you install other tools than the Run-time Engine, you may be asked to install hardware drivers etc. which you do not need and which may actually cause problems for running the simulators.)
