Find Application Folder on Labview

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi

 

Is there any way to find dynamically the "Application Folder" on LabVIEW?

 

For example, if i have windows on another language, the application folder won't be the typical:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\

 

I already tried to use the property node "App.Default Application"  but i can't use this do get a path.

 

Thanks

Does the path constant "Default Data Directory" work for your needs?

 

hope this helps,

Hi

The path constant "Default Data Directory" does not work sorry:(

 

Default Data Directory:

C:\Documents and Settings\user\My Documents\LabVIEW Data

 

I guess there is no LabVIEW funtion the Application Folder dinamically. Perhaps only if i implemented...

Well, thanks anyway:)

That only returns the folder where the VI is located, not the Windows User "Application Data" folder, which is a "special" folder.

 

To get the "Application Folder" you can user either .NET or the Windows API. For .NET you can use the Environment.GetFolderPath method. For the Windows API you can use SHGetFolderPath

 

Here's the .NET method:
