How to build labview executable with all dependencies and libraries contained inside .exe

Go to solution



I developed an application using several external libraries: JKI JSON string, Datagrid, etc... Under destinations of build properties, I select Main.exe. Under source file settings, I marked everything "Set destinations for all contained items" = Main.exe, "Set destinations for packed and shared libraries" = Main.exe.


However, when the build is finished, I still find that JKI libraries are still in separate folders. There are literally dozens of JKI folders, each one contains 1 or 2 VIs. Also, the same for equipment drivers.


What have I missed and how can I fix this ?

Thank you !

What version of LV are you using?

Make sure that you did not by accident check the checkbox "use LabVIEW 8.x file layout" in your build script.

Thank you, I had no idea that option was checked and "LabVIEW 8.x file layout" could cause it.
