Deployment to run-time environments is why developers have used build specifications for a long time. One challenge that arises is the actual delivery of the installer as its size occupies ~1GB.

This presentation demonstrates how we can use the Package build specification and include dependencies to create small packages for NI Package Manager, and even publish them to a SystemLink Server Feed for SystemLink client deployment for both LabVIEW and TestStand systems. SystemLink then will have awareness of all the deployed systems and their configurations.
