Use this page of the Installer Properties dialog box to add files to include in the installer.

This page includes the following components:

  • Project Files View—Displays the files in the LabVIEW project as they appear on disk, including files generated by build specifications in the project. Files that a build specification includes appear dimmed in the tree because you cannot add or remove individual files generated by a build specification. You can add or remove only the entire build specification.
  • Destination View—Specifies the location and directory structure of the files when you install them.

    The folders in the Destination View directory with a LabVIEW prefix correspond to the following locations:
    • [LabVIEW x Examples]—Files you include in this folder install to the labview\examples directory.
    • [LabVIEW x Help]—Files you include in this folder install to the labview\help directory.
    • [LabVIEW x Instrument Drivers]—Files you include in this folder install to the labview\instr.lib directory.
    • [LabVIEW x Palettes]—Files you include in this folder install to the labview\menus directory.
    • [LabVIEW x Run-Time]—Files you include in this folder install to the Shared\LabVIEW Run-Time\x directory, where x is the LabVIEW version currently in use.
    • [LabVIEW x User Libraries]—Files you include in this folder install to the labview\user.lib directory.
    • [LabVIEW x]—Files you include in this folder install to the labview directory.


    The folders in the Destination View directory that do not have a LabVIEW prefix correspond to Microsoft Installer (MSI) properties. Refer to the Microsoft Developer Network website at msdn.microsoft.com for more information about the corresponding Microsoft Installer (MSI) properties:
    • [All Users Desktop]—Files you include in this folder install to the location that corresponds to the DesktopFolder property.
    • [Personal]—Files you include in this folder install to the location that corresponds to the PersonalFolder property.
    • [Program Files Common]—Files you include in this folder install to the location that corresponds to the CommonFilesFolder property or the CommonFiles64Folder property.
    • [Program Files]—Files you include in this folder install to the location that corresponds to the ProgramFilesFolder property or the ProgramFiles64Folder property.
    • [Public App Data]—Files you include in this folder install to the location that corresponds to the CommonAppDataFolder property.
    • [System]—Files you include in this folder install to the location that corresponds to the SystemFolder property or the System64Folder property.
    • [Temp]—Files you include in this folder install to the location that corresponds to the TempFolder property.
    • [Windows Volume]—Files you include in this folder install to the location that corresponds to the WindowsVolume property.
    • [Windows]—Files you include in this folder install to the location that corresponds to the WindowsFolder property.
  • Add—Adds a file to the Destination View. Before you click the Add button, select a file in the Project Files View and a folder in the Destination View. You can add only auto-populating folders, but you can add multiple files at the same time.
  • Remove—Removes a file, folder, or build specification from the Destination View. Before you click the Remove button, select the file, folder, or build specification in the Destination View you need to remove.
