0_o Posted March 26, 2019 Report Share Posted March 26, 2019 Hi, Most of us here build applications and add to it user manuals and readme files that instruct how to install the app and what its requirements are. However, we don't give the same level of documentation to the development env so that we could manage the source code from another computer in a few years. You might lose track of the LV version, modules, addons, vipms, folder structure, win version, 3rd party tools/activex/dll/db, LV ini, system settings, methodology/architecture, passwords and so on. I would love to hear how you approach that issue (docker VMs? Jenkins with a build from repository dedicated station?). For now, to make it simple, I'll ask if there is a way to install LV automatically without having to install and modify manually: 1. LV ini and configurations 2. All the VIPMs that I currently use 3. NI Modules 4. 3rd party tools like activex and dlls It takes hours if not days to install everything. Is there a way to have such a bundle automatically installed when for example I upgrade LV or reinstall it on a different computer without me writing my own installation automation as I do for customer applications? It will be crazy if I would have to update my installation automation each time I add a new VIPM or addon or save something new to the user.lib for each application I write for each version For the first stage, I would be satisfied with a one-click unattended silent install of 20 VIPMs with LV env customization Quote Link to comment
