Did you mean: 

Add installation option to inherit LabVIEW.ini settings from previous installation

The title says it all - I'd like to have the option to inherit my configuration settings from the previous LabVIEW installation (or from a specified path).  Currently I have to do this manually by copying the ini file from the previous version, but I'm never sure whether there will be compatibility issues with the new version of LabVIEW or if there are obsolete settings.  The installer should check for compatibility/obsolescence issues as it creates the new ini file.

 

Alternatively / additionally, I'd like to be able to specify where LabVIEW loads the LabVIEW.ini file from (which could be located on a network or USB disk).

I basically suggessted the same thing here:New LabVIEW Installation Retains Options

 

Good to see others want it too. :-)

Sorry, I didn't mean to duplicate your idea.  I searched for items relating to this topic, but I must have missed your post.  Let's hope it gets implemented by NI!

For this you can do that by following these instructions.

Don't worry about duplicating it. Maybe, if enough people ask about it, it will someday be implemented!
