XML error file not recognized when running VI

I've defined custom error codes using LabVIEW's error code editor. However, when I run my VI, the error handler VI cannot interpret my custom codes. My VIs are stored on a remote data server but I'm running LabVIEW locally on my computer. The XML file is stored in my local install directory>>user.lib>>errors. Could this be the problem? How can I get LabVIEW to recognize my custom errors without having to change where I store my files?

I don't know what the problem was, but when I closed LabVIEW and then opened it again, it found my local error file...

That is the expected behavior. The last line of the help topic says that a restart of LabVIEW is required.
