EXE can't find system subVIs

I have a 8.6 application working fine as a VI, but when i build an exe and run it (on the same computer), it can't find some system VIs from vi.lib. Every time it is launched, it prompts for the files and i have to browse manually for them.


I read in another post that "there is a known issue with LabVIEW 8.5 when trying to build an app out of a VI that uses a static VI reference to reference itself", this could be the problem, but i can't find information about this issue

Any idea what the VI names are (it should mention that).  If the missing VIs are Not Found, Details Display and Set String

have a look here

How do you call those vis? Dynamicly?

If yes, then you have to include those vis in the executable at "always include"

The files are the ones named by voodoo_, so it's a Labview bug, i did the workaround as in the other topic and it works.
