Parent Topic: Building and Distributing a Custom Device
After you plan, build, and benchmark and debug a custom device, you must package the device for distribution to NI VeriStand.
|Note This topic describes how to distribute a custom device manually. You also can refer to the LabVIEW Help for more information about building installers.|
Complete the following steps to distribute a custom device.
You now can distribute the custom device ZIP file to any operator using a corresponding version of NI VeriStand. The operator then can add the custom device to NI VeriStand by copying the contents of the Build directory into the <Common Data>\Custom Devices directory or, for timing and sync devices, the <Common Data>\Timing and Sync directory on their host computer. NI VeriStand parses these directories for custom devices when it launches.
|Note The path to the shared directory varies based on your operating system.|
To enable an operator with LabVIEW access to modify and rebuild the custom device, you can provide the files in the Source directory.
