Use this page of the Real-Time Application Properties dialog box to configure and add destination directories for a stand-alone real-time application.

This page includes the following components:

  • Destinations—Specifies the destination directories in which you want to include source distribution files. Click the New Destination and Remove Destination buttons to add and delete directories from the list.
  • Add Destination—Adds a custom destination directory to the Destinations listbox.
  • Remove Destination—Removes the destination directory you select from the Destinations listbox. You cannot remove the default destination directory or the support directory.
  • Destination label—Specifies the name that the dialog box uses for the directory you select in the Destinations listbox. Edit the label if you want to change the name. You cannot change the name of the default destination directory or support directory. Editing the destination label has no effect on the directory name on disk.
  • Destination path—Specifies the path to the directory you select in the Destinations listbox. Click the Browse button to navigate to and select a path. If you change the path of the default destination directory, any destinations that are subdirectories automatically update to reflect the new path.

    Append the [VersionNumber] tag to the path so LabVIEW includes the version of the build when constructing the build directory. For example, the path C:\temp\builds\[VersionNumber] creates the C:\temp\builds\1.0.0.0 directory on disk. The next time you build, the directory on disk increments to C:\temp\builds\1.0.0.1 and so on. Use the [VersionNumber] tag for the Application (EXE), .NET Interop Assembly, Packed Library, Shared Library (DLL), and Source Distribution build specifications.
  • Destination type—Specifies the destination type of the item you select in the Destinations listbox. You cannot change this setting for applications or support directories.
    • Directory—Specifies that the destination is a directory.
      • Preserve disk hierarchy—Preserves the disk hierarchy of the files targeted to this destination directory.
    • LLB—Specifies that the destination is an LLB.
  • Add files to new project library—Specifies that you want to add files you move to the selected destination to a new project library.
    • Library name—Name of the new project library to which LabVIEW adds the files.
  • Custom Destinations—The following components appear when you select the Custom packaging option.
    • Destinations—Specifies the destination directories in which you want to include source distribution files. Click the Add and Remove Destination buttons to add and delete directories from the list.
    • Add—Adds a destination directory to the Destinations listbox.
    • Remove Destination—Removes the selected destination directory from the Destinations listbox. You cannot remove any default destination directory that is already present in the Destinations list.
    • Destination label—Specifies the name that the dialog box uses for the directory you select in the Destinations listbox. Edit the label if you want to change the name. You cannot change the name of the default destination directory or support directory. Editing the destination label has no effect on the directory name on disk.
    • Destination path—Specifies the path to the directory you select in the Destinations listbox. Click the Browse button to navigate to and select a path. If you change the path of the default destination directory, any destinations that are subdirectories automatically update to reflect the new path.

      Append the [VersionNumber] tag to the path so LabVIEW includes the version of the build when constructing the build directory. For example, the path C:\temp\builds\[VersionNumber] creates the C:\temp\builds\1.0.0.0 directory on disk. The next time you build, the directory on disk increments to C:\temp\builds\1.0.0.1 and so on. Use the [VersionNumber] tag for the Application (EXE), .NET Interop Assembly, Packed Library, Shared Library (DLL), and Source Distribution build specifications.
    • Destination is LLB—Place a checkmark in this checkbox if you want the specified destination directory to be an LLB file.
