Open and run the VI using FP.Open from another VI

I would like to have LabVIEW open and run the VI when I open the second VI (number 2) from VI (number 1). I set the appropriate Execution options in File»VI Properties to make both  VI run when opened but it works only for the first vi and when I open from another the second vi will open but not run.Would u plz let me know how can I make the second vi run when I open it using FP.Open.

There are several ways to start VI 2.

- use a invoke node of VI 2 which says : "run when opened"

- edit the VI properties of VI2 en set "run when opened" to TRUE
