Note (August 2008): Thanks to all of the users who have provided feedback on these proposals. At this time, NI is likely to proceed with the proposed LabVIEW API to access system directories. However, NI has suspended plans to implement the proposed changes to the LabVIEW directory structure. The proposed LabVIEW directory changes originated internally based on anticipated demand for NI to adhere to Microsoft Vista's directory recommendations. Since imposing a new directory structure impacts Alliance members and many of our other customers, we have decided to suspend these changes until there is a greater customer demand.
- Users need access to the system directories at runtime and at install time. Besides Get System Directory VI and more entries in Installer Builder, what other features are needed to create applications that disperse files to appropriate special operating system directories?
- Other comments/questions about the Get System Directory VI?
I'm not I understand your request. Currently, you can specify the company name and product name in the Installer builder UI. What do you mean by specifying the application instance?
I still don't understand what your request has to do with the application builder settings. If you are copying the EXE's, does that mean you build the EXE with one build specification and then make copies of the output? Where do you get the "company" name and nickname now?
As the document says: "These changes will not occur in LabVIEW until 2009 or later". Judging by NI's release dates in recent years, that probably means around August of 2009 or 2010.
When can I get it?
