Unable to open LabVIEW 7.1 application (.exe) file in LV 2018


I am given a very old LV application file and am trying to open it in my LV 2018. When I try to open this file, I get an error message saying that I will need a LV run-time 7.1 installed to open this.

I understand that this is extremely outdated and nowhere to be found. Therefore, I was wondering if theres any workaround this?

Many thanks,

You can find the Run Time Engine under 

to execute your application.


But you can not open your exe file in LabVIEW Development System, no matter what version.

Edit: You will need the source code files to open them in the development system.
