Unit Test Framework (optional)


Contains a build script for a LabVIEW Project. Use a build script in your development to automate the task of, and avoid errors when, creating deliverables. A sample project is included that creates an application, installer then archive (.zip) for a project. This build script supports the new 9.x build format by building the specs in a high level temp folder (e.g. C:\dist) to minimise errors occurring from the OS exceeding maximum number of characters in path. NI's Unit Test Framework (UTF) is supported or code can be added for other Unit Test APIs (see Unit Test Framwork.png for demo code).

Installation and instructions:

The dist folder contains build.vit and a library (.llb) of support code. See Examples section on how to use code.


1. Open example\Project.lvprj

2. Open and run build.vi, VI should complete execution with no errors

3. Once build script has completed explore example\dist to view all builds (application, installer, zip)

4. Unzip zip folder and install application

5. Run the application

6. "Build Works!" dialog should appear to indicate sucessful build

7. Reuse script

a. Use build.vit as starting template for project

b. Edit the project details on the block diagram to match to new project
