The line of your code:

let prj = File.create_project_from_visitor "non zero divisor" (new 

is wrongly placed. It must not be put at toplevel of your module but 
inside a function. Moreover your plug-in has no 'main' registered in the 
kernel through Db.Main.extend (see the Plug-in Developer Tutorial).

As a consequence, your visitor is run while Frama-C is not fully 
initialised and, in particular, it does not register yet any C file to 
analyse (that explains the warning).

Something like below would be much better (even if I don't check whether 
there are others errors) :

let main () =
   let prj =
       "non zero divisor"
       (new non_zero_divisor)
   ... (* do eventually something with prj *)

let () = Db.Main.extend main

Hope this helps,
