Stand-alone application & load LV 2017 runtime engine

Sorry for bringing this up again, but haven't sorted it out looking on the forum and google'ing it...

I have a very simple application I'd like to distribute on a USB stick. It is just a GUI to launch other applications

I cannot install LVRTE, but I'm fine to include the LVRTE2017 folder onto the stick. How can I point the application to look for the dlls in the provided sub-directory?

Tried to include the LVRTE2017 folder in the build spec (as "always include") and to add viSearchPath to app ini file... No luck though...

You need move RT dll into root directory instead subdir.
Also you need not all run-time components. You can delete components by one and test if exe still works.

tried to move into root directory (where exe is located), still getting the message LVRTE is missing and if I wish to download...

I tried it some years ago, so don't remember details.
What exactly you copy?
As I remember, I copy all from ..National Instruments\LabVIEW NNN\resource
into my root folder and then start remove files/folders by one.

I did a copy of the whole "C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\Shared\LabVIEW Run-Time\2017"
