Issue Details

  • I created an Executable LabVIEW and I have a .ini file created with it. In this file, I wanted to change the value of "DebugServerWaitOnLaunch" from True to False. Is it possible to change it when creating the Executable ?
  • Is there way to automatically change the .ini file settings in LabVIEW when building an executable?


It is not possible to modify the values of this .ini file directly from LabVIEW when you create the Executable. There are two options :

  • You can edit the value directly in the .ini file with a text editor. Then, when you will launch your application, it will check the new value in the ini file.
  • The second solution is to create a VI that will read this .ini file, change the value and save the file just after the generation of the Executable. This VI can be called in the Build Specifications -> Pre/Post Build Actions, as you can see in the image below. This way, the value will be changed just after the creation of the .ini file.
