Building Executables from Graiphic Toolkits using Post Build File method

February 12, 2024

How to build an executable ?

 

    • Open GIM, select “Deployment” from the menu and click on “Post Build File“.

 

    • A window will open, in which you’ll find the file “Post-Build Action.vi“, which you’ll use to create an executable.

 

    • Create your executable and in the “Additional Exclusions” tab, uncheck “Remove unused polymorphic VI instances“, “Remove unused members of project libraries” and “Disconnect unused inline subVIs“.

 

    • Still in your executable’s properties, go to the “Pre/Post Build Actions” tab, check “Execute VI after build” and add the “Post-Build Action.vi” VI we retrieved in step 1.

 

    • Run the build and wait for the front panel to appear, which will allow you to retrieve the DLLs used by the GRAIPHIC toolkit.
    • On the first page, select the toolkit(s) present in your executable.

 

    • On the second page, select the hardware(s) compatible with the toolkit(s) in your executable.
