Run-Time Menu. Please, Please, Help!

Highlighted
Here is the weird thing that happens on my machine:
Custom menu normally appears in executable after EXE has been built. But

custom menu disappears from EXE if I move EXE to different folder or
install it using installer. No matter if RTM file is in the same LLB
together with main VI or added to application builder as a support file.

Otherwords run time menu appears only when I execute my application in
the same folder where it was originally built. If I move executable to
different folder, my run time menu disappears...
Please can somebody help me with that?
I have Windows98, LabVIEW 5.1.1 and NI-DAQ 6.6 installed.

The only solution I have found is this:

In the Application Builder, you have to put "Destination Directory" and
"Support Files Directory" with the SAME DIRECTORY. By default, the .rtm
files (they are support files) search the support directory, so it is
necessary to put the same name for both directories.

I hope this solves your problem.

Miguel.

When you move the EXE file, do you move the llb file too?

I doubt that you'll get a response 9 years later.

 

Which version of LabVIEW are you using?

Back then, he may have been using LV7.1 (at the latest), which means that how executables and installers were created has changed quite a bit.

 

Can you provide more description of what you have tried so far?
