MergPop error on iOS 11.2 & LC 8.1.8

Just did a quick test and to make this work I had to go to Standalone Application Settings > General and choose “Select inclusions for the standalone application”, then under Standalone Application Settings > Inclusions scroll down and make sure “MergPop” is selected along with any other inclusions necessary.

It seems MergPop is not being found when allowing LC to search for the required inclusions. This may be a bug, but I can’t find anything on LCQC for it right now, although I’m sure I remember it being discussed on this list previously (that’s how I knew what the fix was), but I don’t remember the conclusion.

FYI, I checked this by adding a catch tError command within the try - end try handler then used answer tError, it told me that LC couldn’t find the handler “mergPopActivity”, so it confirmed that the library was missing, fixing that made it work.
