17358: VIPM could allow package installation into a LabVIEW version that is not supported by the package. This could result in VIs being installed into older versions of LabVIEW, which were compiled in newer versions of LabVIEW, and could therefore not be opened in LabVIEW.
- 17380: Mass compile failing in LabVIEW 2016 due to changes in vi.lib location of some LabVIEW support files used by VIPM.
- 13790: VI Package Builder - This issue affects package building of classes. The issue appears to be isolated to VIPM. It's possible to build a package where members of a friend class cannot access members of a community scoped class. This occurs if you set a password on the community scoped class in the VIPM source files settings page.
