This VI illustrates how to launch a file programatically from LabVIEW using the SystemExec VI. Files launched programmatically in this manner will open in their default application from Windows.
This VI uses Open a Document on Disk VI to programmatically open a file on the disk in its default application. The "Open a Document on Disk" VI is not part of the function palette, but it is available in vi.lib. It is located at <LabVIEW>\vi.lib\Platform\browser.llb\Open a Document on Disk.vi.
LabVIEW 2012 (or compatible)
Additional Notes or References
When launching a file, be sure to point to its actual destination. Some shortcuts to executables will not work unless you point the to actual location of the executable.
