"Made some mods" is very nebulous. :) So here is some nebulous 
troubleshooting.

I've gotten that error before by manually adding a window or some 
controls to a PG project, instead of via PG's tools I think.

?

Regenerating the resource might aid. I think the needed constants and 
such were out of sync in my case.

But I may have done something else to get that error, so this 
suggestion comes with a 40-50 percent confidence level.

I do tend to think it was due to me adding code here and there when 
some of it needed to be handled via PG Window creator.

Then there's the case of using the extra project file PG Outputs 
instead of your own on occasion , if they are named differently.
