How To Locate LabVIEW Compare Path?

Recommended Posts

I am sure that someone has come across this problem before. What is the best method for determining the LVCompare.exe path? Is there a cross-platform solution?

I am looking to update some Hg tools to support cross-platform operation. My initial thought was to use the "Get System Directory.vi".

Does anyone know what the default paths are for Linux and OSX?

Please be aware that your code is not cross-platform compliant (even if those folders existed)...

However I assume that somewhere in regedit the location of the NI Shared folder is stored.
