*Warning: Take backups of any files prior to modifying them. Ensure the backups are in a location that will not be overwritten (i.e. the Desktop)

1) Navigate to where the project is located
2) Locate the file variable.sqx and rename file or move outside the project folder (i.e. the Desktop)
3) Run the compile again, this will create a new variables.sqx file
4) Verify project is running as expected
