Issue Details

I have a stand alone application built in LabVIEW that I would like to have track the state of the system it is running on such the system time.  What would be the best way to save then retrieve this data between application runs? 


Use a Configuration File V to create and read configuration data for the application. You can customize the data you put in the configuration file and each instance of the application can then read the data in the file.

Additional Information

The configuration file will reside in the application directory unless another path is specified
