Issue Details

I am creating two different deployment kits in LabWindows/CVI, one for deployment and one for development. How do I set the GUIDs (globally unique identifier)?

Solution

LabWindows/CVI handles all the GUID creation for the user, so you should not have to edit the .cds files. To create two different kits from the same version, use Side-by-side (do not upgrade) (General Tab) on the first kit you make. This creates a .cds file. Then, create a second distribution and select Copy settings from existing file checkbox when you create it. This will generate a second .cds file.
