Hi Folks, I have some popup VIs that can be called by the main VI's menu as well as from the popups themselves. These VIs are not dropped inside any VI, but are called dynamically using their path - either absolute or relative to the caller. My problem is, I do not know where the VIs might be placed at the time of the Build. Without going too deeply into the dirty laundry and politics of our company, the project was divided into 2 parts. One part is concerned with retrieving and writing data to a database (my part). This requires user interaction. My contribution is integrated into a legacy application "owned" by another person. That person controls the main VI as well as the Build and distribution. Unfortunately, he operates autonomously and without communication. Bottom line is I have no idea where he will place the VIs for the build and he may change the location at any future build. I cannot use the Get VI Dependency method because the popups are called dynamically and therefore do not exist on any block diagram. Is there any way to retrieve these paths within an executable at runtime? Yes, I know the answer is to work as a team, but that is not going to happen... Thanks, John
