Issue Details

I have previously imported a shared library (dll) to LabVIEW.  How do I reinitialize the list of imported libraries?


In order to remove the list of imported librareis from this tool you will need navigate to your My Documents\LabVIEW Data\Shared Library directory and delete two XML files. The files to be removed are HeaderParserResult.xml and yourfunctions.dll.xml. This will clear the list as well as remove the traces of the import data.

Additional Information

  • Additionally, if you chose to copy your data to the destination directory when importing, you may want to remove the copied files. These files were copied to LabVIEW\user.lib\; therefore, nagivate to this path to remove the directories associated with the libraries that were imported.
  • If you do not wish to remove all your imported functions you can modify the HeaderParserResult.xml file to not include the libraries you no longer want on the list.
