Creating Executables in LabWindows/CVI

You can create true 32-bit and 64-bit Windows executables in LabWindows/CVI. The LabWindows/CVI run-time libraries come in DLL form. Executables you create in LabWindows/CVI and executables you create in an external compiler use the same DLLs. If you run more than one program at a time, Windows loads only one copy of the DLL.

To create an executable suitable for distribution, you must first select Build»Target Type»Executable in the Workspace window. Next, you must select one of the release configuration options in the Build»Configuration submenu. Then use the Build»Build command to create an executable suitable for distribution. You can set the name of the executable as well as other options by selecting Build»Target Settings. Executables created using a release configuration do not contain any debugging information and therefore cannot be debugged.

To create an executable that you can debug, select one of the debug configuration options in the Build»Configuration submenu and then select Build»Build.
