LVH Build Tools - Project Q?

If I have multiple branches (like for LV2013 from the master LV2011?), where do the build tools go to. Master? Head? I didn't see a way to pick it in the tool.

(hopefully I'm speaking git well enough to know how to ask the question?)

Hey Mark,

The build tools will use whatever is currently in your working directory. When you use the build tools to 'install' it looks for config files in your source base directory and then uses the relative paths from that to install files into LabVIEW so if you're on a branch you'll get that, if you're on the master you'll get that.

You should probably sync out anything into your branch before you switch branches and install again. There is currently not a good way to install multiple branches into LV at the same time (this would cause trouble).

Let us know if you have more questions about this.
