  • © National Instruments Corporation7-1 1,Target Distribution 1, Guide7Licensing Your Target and Creating the InstallerNational Instruments must license and sign the target before you can bundle and resell LabVIEW with your target. The steps in 8,the Process 8, Overview of 8,Bundling Your 8, Embedded 8, Target 8, with 8, LabVIEW section of Chapter 7,1, 7,Distributing Your Embedd 7,ed Target 7, and LabVIEW, outline the process National Instruments requires OEMs to complete to formally create a product for a new embedded target. After you port LabVIEW to your target, refine the end-user experience, and test your target, you are ready to have National Instruments sign your target and provide you with the necessary files to complete the installer for your product.Signing Your TargetNational Instruments signs your target so end users cannot modify the target-specific plug-in VIs or the functionality of your target.Listing the Plug-In VIs for SigningUse the Signed Files tab in the Target Properties dialog box in the Target Editor, available by selecting Tools»Embedded Tools»Target Editor, to list the files in your target directory that you do not want end users to be able to modify. The Target Editor stores the file list in the TgtSupp.xml file in your target directory.TipTypically, signed files include VIs that launch from a shortcut menu. If you want to prevent end users from modifying VIs that appear on palettes, consider password-protecting these VIs instead of including these VIs in the signed files list. This allows you to make changes to the VIs without resubmitting the TgtSupp.xml file to National Instruments. Refer to the LabVIEW Help for information about password-protecting VIs.
