The Sample List file specified in the error message does not exist in the newly created or newly opened project
FIX or WORKAROUND
Click OK in the error box and proceed.
This is not an error message. It is an information message. The message means that the sample list open in the current project or last opened in a project template does not exist in the SampleDB folder for the project being opened or created.
In the Project Wizard, if Copy Sample Lists is checked or if a Sample List file of the same name does exist in the SampleDB folder of the project being opened or created, the message does not appear.
