This package contains code posted on NI Forums by NI that applies a fix to the Properties Dialog Box of a Library that adds a Apply Icon To VIs button. This button allows you to easily apply a Library's icon to all Member VIs. Previously you would have had to open the Library icon, edit it, apply changes, then re-edit (it back).

This fix is for LabVIEW 2009 only. This feature will be native in 2010.

This package will install files to the labVIEW 2009\resource\Framework\Providers\VILibrary folder

On unistall the original files will be re-installed.

See here to view original post by AQ.
