Exe file to Kinect

Here is my situation: I started working with LabView and Kinect One. The problem is that I have a license for the LabVIEW Application Builder just in my notebook Windows 7, the computer that is used to make tests with Kinect has Windows 8, but it doesn't have a license.
Knowing that, is it possible to make all my program's developpment in the computer and just the exe file in my notebook or will I have troubles since I can't install Kinect SDK 2.0 in Windows 7?

And another question, is it possible to simulate two VI at the same time? I have to compare datas from a DAQ USB-6008 and Kinect in real time.
Thank you and sorry if it's a silly question, I just started learning how to use LV a few days ago.

Hi kevinsetio,

I don't have solid answers to your questions, but I'll try:

Whether you can build an exe without all the requisite libraries installed comes down to how the LV Kinect library links to the Kinect SDK (I'm not familiar with the Kinect library so I'm not sure). My best advice is to try it and find out. If it doesn't work then you'll probably get an error while building. In any case, you'll have to install the Kinect SDK on whatever PC you install the resulting exe on.

I'm not completely sure what you mean by simulating two VIs, but if you mean running two separate VIs simultaneously, then the answer is yes that should work fine.

With both these questions my advice is: try it and find out. What's the worst that could happen? ;-)

Yeah, you got a point. It's not possible to do it, it's needed to put all the things together in order to make an EXE file.
But as you've said, it was worth the shot.

And thanks sharpk!
