Select a default data directory to specify the default location for any data files LabVIEW generates.

Note  Selecting a default data directory sets the directory for the Read From Measurement File Express VI, Write To Measurement File Express VI, Default Data Directory constant, and Default Data Directory property.

Complete the following steps to select the default data directory.

  1. Select Tools»Options to display the Options dialog box.
  2. Select Paths from the Category list.
  3. Select Default Data Directory from the pull-down menu.
  4. Remove the checkmark from the Use default checkbox to access the path preferences options.
  5. Enter a new path in the text box or click the Browse button to select a directory and click the Replace button. You also can click the ! button to enter the <osdatadir> tag into the Path field automatically. <osdatadir> represents the path to the default file directory on the operating system.
  6. Click the OK button.
Note  All changes to the default data directory options take effect when you restart LabVIEW.
