Issue Details

I've built a LabVIEW executable and moved it to a new computer for deployment. When I run the executable, there are several missing dependencies. How can I ensure my deployment computer has all the files it needs?


The best way to ensure LabVIEW executables have all the dependencies they need is to build them into an installer before deploying them. When LabVIEW builds an installer, it includes all the files the executable needs to run and installs them on the target computer, in a place where the executable can access them.
