Issue Details

When I try to build a packed library, I receive the following error:
Error 7 occurred at File/Directory Info in AB_Engine_Update_Exe_Timestamp.vi->AB_PackedLibrary.lvclass:Build.vi->AB_Build.lvclass:Build_from_Wizard.vi->AB_UI_Frmwk_Build.lvclass:Build.vi->AB_UI_FRAMEWORK.vi->AB_Item_OnDoProperties.vi->AB_Item_OnDoProperties.vi.ProxyCaller

Possible reason(s): 

LabVIEW: File not found. The file might be in a different location or deleted. Use the command prompt or the file explorer to verify that the path is correct. 

Solution

The LabVIEW Application Builder Module is installed with LabVIEW, but will need to be activated to work. To address this error, ensure that your LabVIEW Application Builder Module is activated.

Additional Information

LabVIEW Application Builder can be licensed as a standalone product or the license comes with LabVIEW Professional Development.
