Issue Details

When I open a VI in LabVIEW NXG, I receive an error saying Unresolvable or unloaded dependency: followed by the name of a subVI. How do I resolve this error?


To review dependency errors in LabVIEW NXG, you can Open your project>>Project Files>>Right click in your project>>Capture Packages Dependencies

Here LabVIEW NXG will review all the files that you are using in this project and will report any dependency error of your project.

Based on the name of the missing VI, find the NI Package Manager package that includes the VI.  Install the package to get the missing subVI. 

If the missing subVI is one that you have created, manually add the subVI to the project. Once the subVI is in the project, your VI should be able to open without errors.

Additional Information

This error occurs when there is a dependency (such as a driver or other VI) that is missing or unable to be found by the project. The subVI causing the error will show up on the block diagram as a placeholder node.
