Use source distributions to package a collection of source files. Source distributions are useful if you want to send code to other developers to use in LabVIEW NXG.
To create a source distribution, click File>>New>>Distribution in LabVIEW NXG and set Type to Source Distribution on the Document tab. Refer to Distributing Applications and Libraries in LabVIEW NXG 2.0 Manual for detailed steps to build distributions.
Building source distributions has the following limitations in LabVIEW NXG 2.0:
- Mass saving during a source distribution build is not supported.
- Source distributions need to be installed in the \LabVIEW NXG 2.0\Addons\ folder. Other folders on disk are not supported.
When you build a source distribution into a package installer, NI recommends that you remove LabVIEW NXG from the dependencies list to avoid including LabVIEW NXG files in the package installer output.
