I am building an executable with LabVIEW 7.0, and I am getting error 7.

File not found. The file might have been moved or deleted, or the file path might be incorrectly formatted for the operating system. For example, use \ as path separators on Windows, : on Mac OS, and / on UNIX.

I checked and my files are all there. What is causing this error and how can I build my executable?

There are a couple reasons why LabVIEW may not be able to find the files when building an executable. It may be that when building the executable, it may not be building it to include all your files in a single target file.

In LabVIEW, go to Tools » Build Applications or Shared Library (dll) and ensure that the Single target file with external file for subVIs option is selected.

If this option is already selected, it may be that the file extension of the library is not designated correctly.

Make sure that the name of the library ends with a .llb extension.
