You got a few minutes and just need to know what all the VIPM package building hype is about.
First, VIPM 2011 helps you take control of your reusable VIs. You’ve probably lost control at some point or you know what a great idea software reuse is and you’re ready to start reusing your VIs. Either way, let’s see how the system works:
You launch the VI Package Builder window in VIPM by pressing the Open VI Package Builder button on the toolbar.
To build a package, all you need to do is the following:
1) Specify your VI Package Source Folder.
2) Edit the pre-populated fields, if needed (e.g., VI Package Name, Organization Name, etc.)
When the build is complete, you’ll have a package file that you can install with VIPM. Click on the "Show Package in Explorer" button.
Once installed, the VIs will appear in the LabVIEW palettes.
It’s pretty simple, right?
If you’ve got a little more time, why not try building your first package?
