"Name Attribute Not Found" Error in LabVIEW FPGA

Issue Details

I have a simple project with a FIFO and everything compiles without errors. However, when I deploy the bitfile, I get the error shown below.
What causes this and how do I fix the error?


If a Host to Target or Target to Host DMA FIFO with the specific name "Channel" is used on an FPGA VI, LabVIEW will give an internal error stating that the name attribute was not found. A workaround for this is to use a name for the FIFO other than "Channel"

Additional Information

This issue does not occur if the FIFO is Target-Scoped.
