Issue Details

I am trying to open a LabVIEW project originally developed on another computer, but it appears some of the dependencies are not loading properly. Many of the dependencies are marked with a small yellow triangle with a black exclamation mark, and are labeled with the following warning:

[Warning: has been deleted, renamed or moved on disk]

How do I get these VIs to load properly?


To resolve this dependency warning, follow the steps below:
  1. If the VIs are a part of a driver, make sure that the driver is installed on the development PC and that it is compatible with the PC's operation system.
    • In the sample screenshot above, the NI-CAN driver was not installed on the second computer.
  2. Check if there are other VIs with the same name on the development PC.
  3. Place all high level VIs in the same folder.
  4. Rebuild the project.
