This exact question was asked before, but the solution doesn't help me.
When I open the main program from windows explorer, it brings up the front panel of one of the sub vis as well. I have checked the "window appearance" properties for both of the Vis, and neither of them have either "show front panel when loaded" or "show front panel when called" selected. Any other suggestions?
You can open the front panel in several ways, one being VI properties of the vi itself. You can also set the "Call setup" of the sub vi in the calling vi, and then you have pure functions, as Invoke node.
My problem isn't opening it up. Making it open is easy - by all of the methods you mentioned. My problem is getting it to NOT open.
It also opens on load even when built as an application, which is where the problem comes in. I don't want it to open when the user starts the program.
Well, you need to double check none of the above options are activated, or did you manage to set it as opening vi in the built application?
