No, Application Builder is platform dependent. Applications are compiled for a specific environment and are not platform independent. An application built for Windows PC (.exe
) will not transfer to a Macintosh or Linux system because built applications are operating system specific.
Stand-alone applications built on one version of an operating system platform are also not guaranteed to perform the same when run on another version of the same operating system. You can read more about this in Running Executables or Installers on Different Windows Versions
However, Virtual Instruments (.vi
files) developed on the Windows platform or Macintosh platform will transfer to the other without problem as long as LabVIEW development environment and all libraries/modules/tool kits/drivers are available and installed on both platforms. LabVIEW Files (.vi
files and .llb
files) are platform independent. LabVIEW for Windows will not install on a Macintosh or Linux computer and vice versa.
