Build - error 5



I get an error 5 when trying to build my application without an installer in Labview 2010.

Everything looks fine until the last part where it actually puts the app together - the error details are:


Error 5 occurred at Delete in>>>>>>

Possible reason(s):

LabVIEW:  File already open.


Any idea, anyone? Could 2010 sp1 help?


The only thing I can think of is that I'm using many "old" vi libs, back from Labview 6. Maybe this creates a problem?

My application is quite complicated to go over and replace all these, especially not knowing a specific place to focus at.



Great forum!

Have you built this application successfully in previous versions of LabVIEW? Are any VIs, especially those being included in the build, running? You may want to ensure that all VIs are stopped, saved, and closed. Also, you may want to check your code to ensure that all opened references are closed when the code is run.


I hope that helps!
