Issue Details

I am working on two different projects. However, one VI in both of the projects is the same. Currently, if I make an update to this VI on one project, I manually go and make the same update to the VI in the second project. Can I just put the same VI in a central location and use it in both projects so that I only have to update the VI once?


Yes, you can use the a VI from the same location in multiple projects. If you make changes to this VI, it will be propagated in every project that refers to this VI. However, if the location of this VI changes, please make sure to change its location in every project that is using it.
