I have a slight issue. I need the location of an application in LV7.1. However Application Directory VI is not available in this version. The closest thing I could find was “Current VI Path” but it returns the VI name in the path too. For example “K:\LabVIEW\test.vi”. I could just delete the last part but I do not know what the exact name will be. Is there a simple way to get just the containing folder path?
Since I do not know what it will be called + it will be made into an executable I am not sure what the resulting string will be. This is also why I’d like to avoid messing it with string actions.
Thank you in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
And then mark the post where you include your VI as the solution!
sorry about the late reply. Also sorry but I could not find the "VI sniplet" option. So here is the section that does the job 🙂
Originally I made a version that messes with the resulting string. However that solution does not work well if the vi is compiled. This version works in both dev and application environments.
