Issue Details

I have a LabVIEW Project that consists of many files and folders, when I build my project to an installer I can't copy whole folders to my build directory.
Is there any way to do this?

Solution

To be able to move whole project folders to your install build directory you need first to convert the folder to an Auto-populating folder, only then you will be able to move it.
Right click the folder you want to move and select Convert to Auto-populating Folder.
Now moving folders is enabled.
