The easiest way is to do a development distribution (File>>Save As.
If your needs are more complex, you can also try <a href=" http://www.yqcomputer.com/ " target="_blank">VIPM</a>. I don't think the free version can do this, but it's worth it just for getting the OpenG code.

If you re using LV versions > 7.x, you can create an LLB by using the option Save As... in the Files menu.
You have to just open the top-level VI of that driver (or something) & go on to build the LLB. All other VIs will get added/bundled into it automatically. :smileyhappy:
