LV7 application build without diagrams

When I strip out diagrams and then do an app build in LV7 I get the following error:-


Error 1073 occurred at C:\lv7 error\lv7 without diagrams\internal.llb\hello world.vi

If I build the application with diagrams then no problems.

Examples attached....

When you built an application, the diagram will be removed during the built process. You probably should not remove it before that.

Thanks for the reply.

I actually need to build the application with some diagrams removed. I have been supplied libraries of subvi's with the diagrams removed.

It works fine in LV6.1. It seems that there has been a step backwards in LV7.

I have just tried the same thing with LV7.1 on a friends computer.

Works fine if I check "disconnect type definitions and unused polymorphic VI instances" in the application settings tab of the Application Builder dialog. This option not available on LV7.

Does that mean I have to pay to upgrade to 7.1 just to go back to 6.1 functionality?

One way around it if at least your toplevel VI has a diagram: Specify "Small target file with external file for subVIs" as built option.

After the built, you can substitute your own llb with the diagram-less VIs as data.llb. You might have to make a few dummy VIs with the same name for the built so they are called correctly. Seems to work, but sounds painful.

Maybe there is a better solution somewhere. I'm curious.

Hello mr_e_cat,

I found some information on this problem at: http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/websearch/6A1A31BD5EBE484886256E85005CE553?OpenDocument

It seems as though you are going to need a clever workaround, or need to include the diagram with LabVIEW version 7.0...

Thanks Travis.

That link does explain the problem. It seems that I need to upgrade to 7.1. The 7.0 solutions are impractical.

For the time being I am moving back to 6.1. Which works just fine.

The solution you propose is too painful. I am reverting to 6.1. I will get 7.1 when I can justify it.

Thanks for the help.
