Error 8 occurred at Create Folder in Create Directory>>>>>>>>>


Possible reason(s):


LabVIEW:  File permission error. You do not have the correct permissions for the file.


Getting this error while building after the implementation

Your build is trying to create a folder on C drive, which is usually not allowed. You can try to create that folder before hand. Or change the output directory to another path.

Older versions of LabVIEW (2015 and earlier maybe?) would sometimes give weird permission errors if you tried doing a build with an explorer window open displaying one of the folders where LabVIEW needed to create a file or folder.  If you try again, make sure all explorer windows are closed and see if that helps.
