Problem using the Application Builder Labview 2017

Heys everyone,

I'm starting to use LabView, and it's pretty cool. I've created myself a program using NI VISA to communicate with a Vitual COM I have. 

The vi is working fine, and so I went ahead towards the Application Builder to create an executable program. The thing is that whenever I try to use the executable program nothing happens; it just stays there, doing nothing. (No error shows up, and no reaction comes from the indicators).

I read about debugging an exe file, but I couldn't get the COM to work properly since Labview gets a hold of it, and the executable asks for a request to it, but it's taken so it doesn't appear on the exe file. 

Any advice on how to get this to work; I managed to make some of them work before, but when I tweaked some minor indicator details and recompiled them, everything stopped working on the exe files.

Thanks for the help, Assad.

(I'm attaching the .vi just in case.)

You might want to save for previous until LabVIEW 2017 is officially released. Nobody here can look at your code.

Noted, I've attached the file running Labview version 16.0. 

(As I can remember I was using that on my Labview 2013).


Hope this is what you were asking for.

Thanks btw!

I ran into the same problem. Build a little hello world in 2017 and then took it to another machine with clean Windows 10 install.

I installed the 2017 32-bit runtime, rebooted and it didn't run. 

I then installed the 2016 32-bit runtime so I could run an older Labview 2016-based app.

Restarted the machine, moved that 2016 app over, and it run fine.

For kicks I tried running the 2017 app and it ran okay too...
