Consider the following recommendations and requirements for deploying VIs when you decide whether to use LabVIEW packed project libraries in a TestStand system:

  • Packed project libraries reduce the number of files required to create a deployment using the TestStand Deployment Utility and reduce the total build time because packed project libraries are precompiled files.
  • Packed project libraries are compressed files and therefore occupy less disk space than VIs.
  • You must determine whether the test system will benefit more from the faster build times the prebuilt packed project libraries offer or the convenience of using the deployment utility to build the packed project library:
  • Packed project libraries are compressed files and therefore occupy less disk space than VIs.
  • The deployment utility supports building the packed project library with debugging information to support debugging of the packed project library on the deployed system.
Notes Notes
  • Use the Deploy Library step type to deploy or undeploy to the local computer the shared variables defined in a LabVIEW project library file or packed project library file, or to deploy or undeploy shared variables defined in LabVIEW project libraries within a selected LabVIEW project.
  • The project library or packed project library must contain only shared variables and cannot contain any VI files.
  • TestStand cannot auto-deploy shared variables defined in a LabVIEW packed project library specified in a LabVIEW project or in a LabVIEW project library saved in an LLB specified in a LabVIEW project.
