ALIASES File Extension
The ALIASES File Extension (*.aliases) maps computer names to IP addresses. For example, My Computer typically maps to localhost or the actual IP address of the host computer running LabVIEW. LabVIEW creates the .aliases file automatically when you create a LabVIEW Project. LabVIEW creates a new .aliases file each time you open the project. If you build an application, the .aliases file is copied into the same directory as the application. You do not need to check the .aliases file into source code control unless you extend the mappings in the file. Deleting the .aliases file does not affect the project.
