Persistence of LabWindows/CVI Dialog Box Options

Where LabWindows/CVI saves some LabWindows/CVI dialog box, in relation to what they affect, might not always be apparent. For example, LabWindows/CVI saves the Default calling convention (32-bit) option in the project file, but you can set the option for each configuration in the project. The tables in this topic list the persistence of options in the following dialog boxes:
