Path changed in Executable, screenshot impossible

Go to solution

Hello everybody,

I have a program, which save a screenhot of the current VI. If I create a executable the "save a screenhot of the current VI" doesn't work.

Maybe there is a problem with the file directory? I attempted it with the File constant: current vi path, application directory and default directory, but without success.


If anywhere a simple example or anybody have some links?


many thanks in advance

I don't know what your solution is, since you don't show a "before" and "after". Perhaps you were encountering this well-known issue: Why Does My Executable Not Work When Using the Current VI's Path Constant?
