Issue Details

  • The NI License Manager indicates that I have Application Builder activated. However, the LabVIEW Project Explorer does not show Build Specifications or Dependencies. How do I resolve this?
  • This PC has valid license for the Application Builder, but the App Builder doesn't show up in any project.


Build Specifications and Dependencies are not listed in the Project Explorer because they are not selected in the project Filter View. To correct this, from the menu bar, select Project » Filter View » Dependencies and Build Specifications
