I am attempting to calibrate some NI-4050A and NI-4051 DMMs with Calibration Executive 3.4.1. Those are not on the list, so I select DAQCard-4050 to run the procedure. When I do, I receive the following error message(s):
Error 1003 occurred at Open VI Reference in cex_ReadDriverVersion.vi->cex_FindProcedureINIAndGetVersionInfo.vi->cex_FindProcedureINIAndGetVersionInfo.vi.ProxyCaller VI Path: C:\Program Files\National Instruments\Calibration Executive\Source\vi.lib\ProcessModel\QueryDriverVersions\specificDrivers\cex_Read_NI-DMM_Version.vi at step Query Driver Versions LabVIEW: The VI is not executable.

I saw a similar error in the Knowledge Base (Document ID: 3N0E4NSF) where the solution was to download the latest device drivers. I tried that to no avail. Are the NI-4050A and NI-4051 new enough that no calibration procedures have been written for them as of yet?
These products are manufactured for particular OEMs and aren't supported in CalExec. If you're a third party calibration lab, please contact the OEM, as they have particular information from NI on how to calibrate the instruments. Have a great day!
