Issue Details

  • I have an executable (.exe) that was built using LabVIEW. Now I need to edit the program that it's running. Is there a way I can do this?
  • What software is needed in order to get in and access a LabVIEW executable?


No. You cannot edit a LabVIEW executable.

In order to edit a LabVIEW application, it is necessary to have the LabVIEW Project where it was developed. In the LabVIEW project you can make all necessary changes to the VIs and then build the executable once again. However, there is no way to edit an executable directly.

Additional Information

Depending on the build specifications of the executable, it is possible to access its block diagram and debug it, but there is no way to make any changes to it.
