I wonder if anyone here has attempted to do this. I have large projects that often share a considerable amount of reusable code. I would like to transition away from pointing directly to these libraries in the development folders to a codebase that is packaged and released using VI Package Manager. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to successfully replace the code in a project stored in one place with that of code stored in another place?
vi.lib and user.lib are part of LabVIEW's search paths. If the files can't be found in the project (or any sub-folder) then these paths will be searched in and re-linked to.
If you create a VI package with the development content and install it then you could:
I have done this several times when transitioning much the same as you.
Ugh...this is what I thought. And unfortunately, the development code is under version control, so changing the location on disk might not be so straightforward...sigh. Thanks.
