Restart LabVIEW Quick Drop Plugin

This very simple Quick Drop shortcut restart LabVIEW.  It's very simple but extremely helpful for developers who frequently need to restart LabVIEW to repopulate the Tools or Help menus, reload Project Provider VIs, register a licensed library etc. 

To install this simply copy the VI to the <LabVIEW>\resource\dialog\QuickDrop\plugins directory.

To run it, simply press Ctrl-Space and then Ctrl-Q.

To modify the key combination, press Ctrl-Space, click "Shortcuts..." and then navigate to the "Ctrl-key shortcuts" tab. 

Note: The Restart LabVIEW method is only available in LabVIEW 2011 and later, this will not work in earlier versions.
