Yes I can run some of it and I get a bunch of file name prompts but that's all related to what I said before with the mis-use of locals and bad wiring. I've attached what one of your first file reads should look like. There is no string control for a path and the first Read Lines passes the selected path to the next. If you have three different files you want to read, then you will get three different prompts unless you fill in the path on the front panel control before you run the VI. There should be absolutely no local variables required for any of these paths.
