I would like to Create button to force stop an close VI. But only VI where button is. When I use STOP function is stopping current VI and VI background. Any other function can i use ?

No.

 

You'll a concurrent loop to set a queue, notifier, channel wire, etc. and stop each loop in the running Vi when the value changes. Or use a control reference and pass it though all the code to let the loops stop.

 

Only other alternative is to start the VI dynamically. Then it will be running top level, and then it can be stopped with the abort method.

Probably because the VI is already running. Then you need to make it reentrant, and configure Open VI Reference to open a clone.

If you attach your code, so that we can really see what you are doing, we can better suggest how to safely shut down and stop your VI (or multiple VIs).  Note that if you have multiple VIs, as in a LabVIEW Project, you should compress the folder containing them and attach the resulting .zip file.

Don't wait until done the VI executes, just make it false and let it run. Use below shown logic it'll work,
