Start by reading the instructions. Open the help and find the topic stand-alone applications>building(how-to). There is also a building(example) topic.

Simple Answer :

Click Tools >> Build Application or  Shared Library (DLL)

 

However, you should  take Dennis' advice and read up on the subject.

You have to be careful so you build the .exe correctly so it works on other machines.

That only applies to LabVIEW 7.x. In LabVIEW 8.x (the poster mentioned 8.5) the process is completely different.

I forgot to check on 8.5. The computer that I usually use (and am using now) runs 7.1.

Right-click the lvm file, then "Open with...", select your .exe application and make it the default application.

Re: making labview .vi file to exe file

Out of curiosity, how were you expecting to build an EXE out of a VI? Did you expect a menu to be present? A toolbar button?

Re: making labview .vi file to exe file

How do i convert a vi file to exe file in Lab VIEW 7.0?

 

It is easy in 7.1 by clicking Tools>>Bild application or Shared Library(DLL).

 

or

 

Is there any way to convert vi file to exe file in 7.1 version which can be opened in 7.0 version?

Re: making labview .vi file to exe file

Do you have the Application Builder for 7.0, or the Professional edition (which includes the Application Builder)? If so, the process is the same. Again, check the documentation.

 

Once you build the app in 7.1 you cannot "open" it with the development environment in 7.0. It's an executable, not a VI.  Note that this is different from saving VIs for a previous version. Is this what you actually want to do?
