Try making the constant going to Wait until Done false.

The example is basically how I do it, but I put in a case to skip launching the Vi if it is already running.

You may want to look at this thread for a recient similar solution.  There are two sub vis located in the thread as well and a configuration file.  As previously mentioned- you would want to modify by changing the constant wired to Wait for Completion property for your application.
