Issue Details

I have just moved my project to another computer. My code is using external .dll files. I have saved these in
 C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2017\vi.lib . 
I thought that the computer would automatically find them but I am getting an error that the files are not found in the expected path which is the path on my old computer. What should I do? 



To solve this problem, you should define the path in which these files are saved on each computer in the Call Library Function through which you are calling the .dll. Double-click on the Call Library Function node and set the path in the Functions tab shown below.
