I need to add a DLL to my LabVIEW project in order to make an EXE. How can I do that?

  1. Make sure that the DLL you want to use is in the same directory as the other files in your LabVIEW project.
  2. In the LabVIEW project, right-click on "Build Specifications" and select "New >> Application (EXE)."
  3. Navigate to the "Source Files" option on the left. 
  4. Click on the DLL in the "Project Files" window and then click the right pointing arrow that is next to the "Always Included" window.
  5. Once the other parameters for you EXE are set, you can click build to create your application.
