The LabVIEW Application Builder leverages the organization provided by the LabVIEW Project, which organizes and manages the files associated with an application. These files include VIs, project libraries, documentation, data files, hardware configuration and more. The Application Builder creates applications, DLLs, and more from user-specified files in a LabVIEW project, and individual build settings are saved in Build Specifications in the project.
When you are using the Application Builder you are presented with several different configuration pages. These pages are titled similarly for the different build specification types but may look different depending on the type. The screenshots below are from the Application (EXE) type unless otherwise stated. To see the list of choices for yourself, open a LabVIEW project, right-click the Build Specifications project item, and select New.
Note: Below, the term “Required” is used to indicate that you must customize information on the page for your build specification. “Recommended” means the page will use default settings but you should customize them. As an example, you could have multiple Application (EXE) specifications but if you didn’t customize the recommended Information page, all the EXEs would be named “Application.exe”.
