Adding Hardware Configuration to a LabVIEW Application

Issue Details

I have built a LabVIEW application that I would like to deploy to another computer without the LabVIEW development environment.  My application depends on network resources that can't be configured with MAX on the deployment computer, because that requires the development tools which are not installed.  How do I access these resources on the deployment computer?


The simplest solution is to include the MAX configuration from the development computer in the application installer.   This will take all the configuration for the hardware that has been done on the development computer, and import it into MAX on the deployment computer.

This can be done from the Hardware Configuration Page in the Installer Properties dialog box when configuring a LabVIEW installer.  Clicking Configure will launch the Configuration Export Wizard, making the process simple.
