Issue Details

The default setup for the LV Installer is to place everything in the Projects Files folder (which is a protected folder) including all program files. This results in a variety of issues related to Windows permissions. How can I make my LabVIEW installer install files to a custom path?

Solution

When creating your installer in the Application Properties Dialog Box, navigate to the Destinations Page, click on the Add absolute path button as shown in the picture below: 



The new folder will appear under the other destination folders. The default name of the absolute path is c:\New Path. You can use the Destination path option to change the path.

Note: One common cause of the permissions dialog box in Windows is writing to the C drive. If you wish to avoid this dialog box, consider writing to another drive.
