I made some more testing concerning disappearing controls ounce the application is built. -> plain boolean and a plain numeric control.
Works fine.
Build the app.
The boolean disappear!. ( running on same machine ).
I'm puzzled.

You will need to include the custom control files when building the VI. How to do this is explained here:

Hope this helps!

Thanks Laura,

Here is what I have done now.

I made it without any custom control.

The vi has
1. a numerical control connected to numerical display
2. a boolean control connected to a boolean display
3. a boolean to stop the vi

When it is run in the development env. everything is fine.

Now I build the app.
1. the up/down arrows of the numerical control does not show up
2. both boolean does not show up, except the dialog type boolean.

If I click on the invisible up/down arrow I can see inc/dec of the numerical display.


I have included as an attachement the test vi, and the built one.

I'm not using Linux but the description of what you see can also occur under Windows.

The effect that all 3D parts are not drawn occurs when the OpenGL library and/or the model files are not found. Under Windows this is in the shared\Labview Run-Time\7.1 folder. The library is in the mesa.dll and the models are in a subfolder named models.

I think your application doesn't find the mesa shared library or the model files.

Using 7.1.1, 8.5.1, 8.6.1, 2009 on XP and RT

Many Thanks Waldemar,

It works!

It was the models subfolder installed somewhere else in the dev env.

Made a link to it in AppLibs dir and "voila!". Fixed
