Hi Sri,


is the path you use to call that exe still valid after creating your "application.exe"?

Did you verify that path?

Best regards,

Hi Sri,


As GerdW described, when you have problems with paths after building into a specific form, it can be very helpful to display the path that you're attempting to use.

Simply adding a path indicator is enough to give you this information when you are building an executable and you have the path available in the top-level VI. In other cases, logging to a file can be helpful (although that requires a valid path usually too!)


If you check the path that you're getting in your case, you'll probably discover your problem fairly quickly - in this case I'd take a quick guess and say the exe is not being copied as part of the build process (or install process) into the appropriate directory+file location (LabVIEW Builds/Support/Process_Test.exe)
