Error 7: Librarian Get Info.vi File not found when Building an Application

Updated Oct 22, 2018

Issue Details

Why do I get "Error 7 occurred at Librarian Get Info.vi--File not found" when Building an Application?

Solution

The application builder returns this error when there is an extra instance of the top-level VI that is added as a support file. Removing the duplicate file fixes the problem

Additional Information

For example, try building an application from the VIs in the attached zip file. Select Calculator.vi as the top-level VI and then select Add Support File >> Add Directory Contents and select the folder "Error 7." The file Calculator.vi is added as a support file even though it is already included as the top-level VI. Clicking "Build" produces the error. If the file Calculator.vi is removed as a support file (keep it as the top-level VI), the application builds successfully.
