Deploy Executable to Laptop

Greetings. I'm new here.

I installed the LV Community Edition onto my desktop and developed a few vi's to interface with my Uno. Pretty cool stuff.


Now I want to execute a vi on my laptop in my garage. My laptop doesn't have enough resources, especially RAM, to install and run the whole LV IDE.


Is there a way to create a small stand alone .exe vi to load and run  on my laptop? 


Thanks in advance

The LabVIEW Community Edition is advertised as having all the features of the Professional Edition. As such it should include the Application Builder that lets you create an executable that only requires the installation of the LabVIEW Runtime Engine.


You still will need to install the Runtime Engine but you can select to create an Installer after you created the executable and add the Runtime Engine to that installer.

Thank you

I'll research the Runtime Engine and installer. I didn't know what to search for.


I may be back with more related questions.
