Issue Details

I have created custom menu bar drop-down menus for my LabVIEW Virtual Instrument (VI) and want to turn this VI into a stand-alone executable (.exe). Can my custom menu files with file extension .rtm (run-time menu) be included in this executable?


Yes. Run-time menus can be saved into a VI library (.llb) that is used to create the executable, which will cause them to be included in the build.  They can also be included by adding the files themselves to the Always Included section of the build specification.
