Labview .exe build not running on Windows XP 32-bit.

I am working on a project for which I had to build an exe from my VI. After making the exe I had to run that .exe on Windows XP 32bit system, but every time it shows that you file is not a valid Win32 application. I searched on net and found out that maybe it is because of different .NET framework as Windows XP uses old version of that. Is there any way of running this .exe build on Windows XP 32 bit. The .exe build is made from LabVIEW 2024 Q1 version. I have attached all the files of exe build in a zip.

I'll not expect other result from 64-bit executable running on 32-bit OS:

You should install LabVIEW 2024 32-bit and rebuild your app.
And don't forget that on the target PC the according LabVIEW Run-Time 2024 needs to be installed. Windows XP is officially not supported by the latest LabVIEW, but it might still work.

Hi

 

You may be helped from reading this :

NI officially killed the ability to deploy any built executable code to XP for anything based on LabVIEW 2016 or newer. But they left a little hacker backdoor open.

Or Save for previous version and build the .exe in 2016 🙂

Hi Yamaeda

 

Well, I haven't tried myself, but since the hack is about accepting XP, even though the gods said Windows 7, then the trickery should work even for LV 2020 SP1 out of the box 🤔
