Issue Details

I'm trying to build a Packed Project Library (PPL) from the Actor Framework library in LabVIEW 2017, but when I try to build this PPL LabVIEW either crashes or hangs indefinitely. How can I fix this?


This is a known bug that affected base LabVIEW 2017, but is fixed as of LabVIEW 2017 SP1. Upgrading affected machines to LabVIEW 2017 SP1 should resolve this issue.

Additional Information

It is possible that attempting to build PPLs from the Actor Framework library in LabVIEW 2017 can cause dependencies linked to the un-built PPL to appear in projects which reference the Actor Framework library. These dependency issues should also be resolved by upgrading to LabVIEW 2017 SP1.
