VL: Exporting an Application

December 4, 2019 posted by: Elias

With the release of vvvv gamma 2019.2 preview it’s now finally possible to create standalone applications out of any vvvv patch.

The steps to create an application are as simple as this:

  • Download and install vvvv gamma 2019.2 preview
  • Open the patch you wanna have as an executable
  • Open the application exporter by pressing F9
  • Press export and voila you have an executable which runs on any Windows 10 machine

To learn how to deal with referenced assets, read Exporting Applications in the gray book.

So please try it out with your projects and report any findings in the forums or the chat.

when i started using vvvv in 2004, there was something on the website about executable export. Took me a while to realise it didn’t exist. Then there was hope it might turn up at some point.

… it took just 15 years :)

and without irony, a great achievement boys. thanks !

I just tried some exported applications on a Windows 7 machine and after installing the newest .NET runtime they do seem to work there as well.

I tried a very simple app with just a renderer and a circle and Schéma.
