how to customize a VI and save it

Go to solution

I wish to customize Auto Power and save the modified version.  I put Auto Pwower on my block diagram, then I double click to open, then I start modifying. When I click File, "Save As" is grayed out.  I don't want to save over the original; I want to make a new and slightly different VI.  How? I am using LV 2011. Auto Power Spectum is on the Spectral Analysis pallette within the Signal Processing group of functions.

Thank you.

It is probably blocked from being resaved since it is part of an add-on toolkit you paid for.


Otherwise you could open the VI, save it as a new name, then give it away to someone.

So I am out of luck?  OK.  Thank you RavensFan.  Not the first time I have benefitted from one of your answers.

You could try opening up Auto Power and copying the contents of the block diagram to a new blank VI. From there you should be able to modify the code as you see fit and then save the VI under a new name. Just make sure you rewire the connector pane on your new front panel.
