Issue Details

I have a real-time application and would like programmatically obtain the build version number. How can I do this?


If using the Replication and Deployment (RAD) Utility to flash your image, you can use the System Configuration Property Node, with the property ImageVersion to obtain the image version. 

You can also use component definition files (CDF) to store build version information. See Using Application Components to Deploy LabVIEW Real-Time Applications for more information on creating and using CDFs.
