Rerunning Discovery After Building a Previously Missing Packed Project Library Still Results in Warning 16086

Adding a TestStand sequence file with a step that specifies a Packed Project Library (PPL) Override with a calling context project and the PPL is missing on disk will result in Warning 16086 "Discovery could not find the following dependency on disk". Rebuilding the PPL and rerunning discovery will still result in this warning another time even though the PPL is now on disk.

Workaround:

Perform discovery a third time for Package Builder to properly locate the PPL.
