Issue Details

When trying to build an executable with the destination on a network folder, the Application Builder hangs on "Building Application..." as shown in the picture below.

Canceling the operation does not work.


Using specific functions and deprecated VIs in your project might lead to the problem described above. In order to solve this issue, please follow these troubleshooting steps:
  • Create a local copy of your project and select a local destination for the build.
  • Copy the subroutine that is causing the hang to a local drive and build the executable.
  • Build progressively your application using the Diagram Disable Structure to find the potential cause that is triggering this behavior.
