Improving Slow Startup and Execution Speed in LabVIEW Executable

  • LabVIEW

Issue Details

  • I have a complex application in LabVIEW and after creating the executable for it, I've seen that It takes a while to startup. Any suggestions to improve the performance?
  • My LabVIEW application has different execution speeds in different LabVIEW versions. How can I prevent this?


There are general suggestions to improve the performance of an executable created in LabVIEW:
If a LabVIEW executable has different execution speeds in different LabVIEW versions, consider the following points:
  • Check whether the slower application is generating .dmp files. Refer to Error Log File Location after LabVIEW Crashes for instructions. 
  • If using any anti-virus software, try disabling it.
    • The anti-virus software may detect the executable as "unknown" and block it's functionality.
  • If the executable logs data to fixed path, verify that the path exists on the target machine.

Additional Information

There other factor to consider like the architecture used, the resources available in your computer (Memory and CPU consumption) or external resources like files and databases.
