Code works fine until build?

So we were testing out an addition to the dashboard, which would use FTP to get log files we made. It works fine in the Labview editor-it runs fine and it gets the files. Unfortunately, when we build it and run it, it errors on opening a connection. We’ve tested this multiple times, but it doesn’t change. It says that there’s an error #54, which is a Labview error of some kind, not an FTP one. Does anyone have any advice about how to go about fixing this? We kinda need this, but nobody here really knows how to use labview, we taught ourselves.

To lookup a LV error, use Help>>Explain Error

54 returns

LabVIEW: The network address is ill-formed. Make sure the address is in a valid format. For TCP/IP, the address can be either a machine name or an IP address in the form If this error occurs when specifying a machine name, make sure the machine name is valid. Try to ping the machine name. Check that you have a DNS server properly configured.

As for why this happens in a built app, do you use one of the path constants, or a property node to read a path or name? If you don’t figure it out, perhaps you want to attach it for others to see.

Never mind, it was something wrong with my computer…I should probably find out what was wrong with it, but in the meantime, it works fine on the actual dashboard and another person’s computer.
