Requires: Application Builder or Professional System (Windows)

From the Project Explorer window, right-click Build Specifications and select New»Installer from the shortcut menu to display this dialog box. You also can right-click an existing installer specification name under Build Specifications and select Properties from the shortcut menu, or double-click the installer specification name. If you rebuild a given specification, LabVIEW overwrites the existing files from the previous build that are part of the current build. However, if you enable the Auto increment checkbox, or Auto increment product version checkbox for installers, on the Version Information page, and you use the [VersionNumber] or [ProductVersion] tags in the appropriate build destination fields, LabVIEW creates a new directory that includes the version number instead of overwriting the previous build on disk.

Note  If you previously hid Build Specifications in the Project Explorer window, you must display the item again to access it.

Use this dialog box to create or configure settings for an installer.

The Installer Properties dialog box includes the following pages:

The bottom of the Installer Properties dialog box includes the following buttons:

  • OK—Updates the project with the current build specification settings and closes the dialog box without performing a build. Clicking the OK button does not save the settings to disk. You must save the project in order to save the build specification settings.
  • Cancel—Cancels the build specification settings you changed and closes the dialog box.
  • Build—Updates the LabVIEW project with the current build specification settings, closes the dialog box, and builds with the current settings. Clicking the Build button does not save the settings to disk. You must save the project in order to save the build specification settings.

(Mac OS X) You can use PackageMaker, included with Apple's Developer Tools, to create an installation package from the application files.

(Linux) You can use the Linux tar command to group the application files into a single file for distribution.
