VI Calling VIM Fails to Build [fixed in VIPM 2017f1]

Recommended Posts

Update: this issue has been fixed in VIPM 2017f1
I've been using the new VIMs feature of VIPM 2017 and am having some issues getting it to build successfully. If I have a VIM on the palette it builds just fine, but if I add a VI that calls that VIM the build fails, even if that VI isn't on the palette.





Attached is a zip with my source. It fails to build because the normal VI "Is Variant Repository.vi" calls a VIM that is in that package. If I delete that VI the build works fine. Is this a known limitation that a package can't be built, if a VI calls a VIM? Here are the errors seen when the build fails. Thanks.

Sorry to open this thread again. However, I have VIPM 2018.0.0f1 and I am trying to build a package with VIMs in and I am getting exactly the same issue that James Powell posted earlier in this thread. Please can you tell me what the workaround was? As simply upgrading VIPM didn't work.

Same issue still in 2018 f2. 

Appears to be related to a vim in a class. Removing the vim from the class solves the problem. I got that work around from Tom and another at https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/VI-Package-Manager-Fails-to-Build-with-Malleable-VIs-VIMs/td-p/3871468

Hi @jamesmc86. Thanks for letting us know. I'd like to get this fixed, if possible. Would you be willing to put a very small/simple example .vipb project together and share it, so that we can easily reproduce and investigate? Thanks.
