Call Labview VI from C Program / missing LabVIEW.tlb file


Hi all,


I would like to run a labview VI from a C program. I've been looking at this help site:


I've downloaded the C++ example and if I understand correctly then I need to import following file: "c:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 8.0\resource\LabVIEW.tlb"


Here's the problem: I can't find a file called "LabVIEW.tlb" in my Labview folder (I'm using the 2010 version). Does anyone know where I can find this file or does anyone have a better apporach for this?


Thanks for any help,

Are you sure the file isn't there? Perhaps you have Windows set to hide files with certain extensions, and that's one of them? At least for me on LabVIEW 2014 and 2015 (all I have installed right now), that file is exactly where it's expected to be.

Thanks a lot for your help! I was looking in the wrong Labview folder (in the program files for the 64 bit programs rather than for the 32 bit programs).
