Issue Details

When I right-click on the Build specifications option in order to build my executable, I don't see the option to create an executable. Why is this option unavailable?


The option to Build an Executable will only be available if the LabVIEW Application Builder is installed and activated on your system. You will be able to verify the activation status of LabVIEW Application builder in the NI License Manager.

Application Builder is not included with LabVIEW Full Development System and is a part of LabVIEW Professional Development System. Refer to Which LabVIEW Edition Do I Need? for more details.
