Back in the early days one could change the file extension of an EXE to say LLB or ZIP and that was great; I used to drag drop VI into the zip file and saved tons of time. Then at some point that format changed.
Today I have an EXE from a customer. The company that had the source code went out of business suddenly.
I have an older version of the souce code and still working on bringing it to LV2020 from LV2010 it is missing so much.
The EXE build is LV2010. I know the name of the file I want to modify. It is a custom control (.ctl) that they hard coded some model numbers into that I want to modify.
I would like to either replace the file (.ctl) or modify the clear text existing model number text with some method. At this point I would just change the numbers and have multiple EXE's for old and new product models.
If you cannot post how on the forum please message me.
This thread has lots of information. You will need to go through it all.
PS I have never done this, beyond my skills, but it is interesting.
Be sure to watch the YouTube video embedded; the author goes through an example. I watched it a while ago, it's pretty neat, not Mars Landing neat, but still neat. 🙂
