With the help of this post, I have been able to successfully build an exe of the configuration tool using the template. I can add targets, engines and modules.
In the development environment it works fine, however, when I run the built tool, all of the modules appear in the 'Other' category. The modules appear in the correct categories (as set in the editor node class) in the default configuration editor found in LabVIEW.
I've tried to dig through and understand exactly where the category is pulled from but I can't really make head nor tail of it.
Has anyone else experienced this? Has anyone successfully built a config editor?
