 Make executable file from VI file


I would like to know how to generate the executable file (For example:
instruments.exe) form original vi labview file format. Is it possible
to run the VI without Labview or Labview Viewer on any 32 bit Windows
system? (95/98/NT/2000).
Thank you for your help.

Yours sincerely

What you need is the "Application Builder" (see for more info)

From the website:

"LabVIEW Application Builder [gives you]
* Ability to create stand-alone executables
* Protected applications
* Easy-to-use Distribution Kit Builder
* Included as part of the LabVIEW Professional Development System

The LabVIEW Application Builder is an add-on package for creating
stand-alone applications. When used with the Application Builder, a
LabVIEW system can create VIs that operate as stand-alone
applications. You can run the executable, but cannot edit it."

So, if you have the LabVEIW Professional Development System, then it's
alreay built in (you can find it under "Tools">"Build Applciation or
Shared Library (DLL)".  If you don't have the professional development
system, then the App. Builder can be purchased separately.

Once the exe has been built with the App. Builder, the target machine
needs to have the Run-Time Engine installed as well...
