Builds the specified library into a binary.

To build a library from the CLI, use the following syntax:

labviewnxg.cli build-library -p <relative or absolute location of the project> -n <name of the library> -t <SystemDesigner target containing the library>

For example:

labviewnxg.cli build-library -p "C:\LabVIEW Projects\Project.lvproject" -n "Library.gcomp" -t "PXI Controller"

To use the build-library operation, the build machine must have the Application Builder and LabVIEW NXG Features for TestStand licenses.

The following table lists the available arguments for this operation.

  • -n "Library.gcomp"
