Menu item "Help for this VI" is grayed out when VI is build into an executable

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi,

 

When I run a VI, and select the Help menu item "Help for this VI" it opens my help file (MyHelp.chm).

But when I build an executable from this VI the menu item is grayed out!

 

Is this normal behaviour??

Hi,

 

Yes I included the helpfile, and it is at the same location as the executable.

Problem solved.

 

I made a new project file with my current LV8.6 and the menu item "Help for this VI" is working now.

The project-file I was using was made with LV7.0 and probably causes this problem.
